A Malachi Richardson impostor spent a day fooling everybody: ‘I got catfished in person’

first_imgIn every way it was Malachi Richardson, except it wasn’t. The two pierced ears. A somewhat scraggly high-top fade haircut. The “Always Reppin’” shirt with the orange block “S” that Syracuse wore during warmups in the NCAA Tournament. And a face that, for someone not entirely familiar with the looks of the former Syracuse standout, could easily be mistaken for Richardson’s.For all intents and purposes, he’ll be referred to as the impostor. He rode a commercial flight early Saturday morning from Syracuse’s Hancock International Airport to Newark Liberty International Airport, where he stopped for pictures, videos and autographs before hopping on a plane to Florida. Two 20-year-olds from central New York, Dustin DuBrule and Sean Loveless, rode both flights with the impostor and fell victim to his charade. DuBrule posted his photo with the impostor shortly after 11 a.m. on Saturday, but it didn’t start circulating until late Sunday night, when Loveless tweeted at Richardson to clarify that he had in fact been duped the day before.“A normal person would be like, ‘It’s not me, but thanks,’ or just says, like, ‘I look like him,’” Loveless said. “I am pissed off … I just have a random picture with somebody who I don’t know who he is.”The impostor still remains nameless as of late Sunday night to the two 20-year-olds, most likely along with everyone else fooled throughout the day on Saturday.And while the real Malachi Richardson could see his name grow in popularity over the next month, another Malachi Richardson could be reveling in the humor of his stunt somewhere in Florida’s warm summer while remaining a mystery.“I got catfished in person,” Loveless said. “Like who gets catfished in person? And then I did.” Comments Related Stories Malachi Richardson reportedly signs with agent, officially ending his college careerHow Michael Gbinije and Malachi Richardson fared at the NBA Draft Combine on Thursday Malachi Richardson was on my plane tho pic.twitter.com/uqdGSCgotK— Dustin DuBrule (@DustinDuBrule) May 21, 2016AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe impostor signed DuBrule’s basketball and told him that he didn’t care which NBA team selected him in the upcoming draft, just that he wanted to be taken. He posed for a picture with Loveless, who waited to approach the impostor until the crowd of around 10 people surrounding him in the tunnel leading from the plane to the gate dissipated.  He even obliged to the request of a stewardess on the first flight, who asked that the impostor send a message to her son in a video.“He really woke up in the morning like, ‘I’m trying to be Malachi Richardson today,’” DuBrule said in a phone interview Sunday night. Published on May 23, 2016 at 2:06 am Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman When the impostor boarded the flight from Syracuse to Newark around 5 a.m. on Saturday, passengers mumbled amongst each other that a recognizable face had joined them. Loveless resisted the urge to approach him immediately and like other passengers on the flight, waited until the plane landed in New Jersey around 7 a.m. to ask for favors.After the impostor’s fellow passengers finished crowding around him, other bystanders in the airport began flocking toward the Richardson lookalike. He never swayed from character, even taking a video with a mom and her son while advising the son to stay in school.Richardson, of course, didn’t heed the impostor’s advice and will instead hope to hear his name called in the first round of this year’s NBA Draft after foregoing his final three years of eligibility at SU.That, in part, is what made the actual Malachi Richardson’s presence on the flight more believable.“He’s still the type of person where he’s humble because he doesn’t have all that money to own his own jet yet and he still has to drive and fly commercial,” Loveless said.This wasn’t an isolated instance where a well-known figure’s doppelganger jokes around with one person and pretends to be someone more famous than themselves. This was intentional, effectively scripted from head to toe, fooling masses of people in Richardson’s own home state about an hour’s car ride from his hometown of Trenton, New Jersey.

Stoke 0 – 2 Man Utd

first_imgManchester United moved to within seven points of securing a 20th league title with a routine win that pushed Stoke further towards the relegation zone.Robin van Persie made sure of the points with a second-half penalty that ended a run of 10 games without a goal.That came after Michael Carrick had given United the perfect start, prodding home from a scrappy corner.The result leaves Stoke only three points above the bottom three, having won two of the last 17 league matches.This was a performance and victory typical of United’s season, one that owed more to perspiration than inspiration, to substance rather than style. With it, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side one again open up a 15-point gap at the top of the Premier League.Stoke, however, are dropping like a stone. One victory in their past 14 matches, one clean sheet in 15 league games, one point from seven matches – the statistics read like relegation form for Tony Pulis’s men. And while a defeat by United may not decide their fate, crucial matches against Queens Park Rangers, Norwich and Sunderland in the weeks ahead, almost certainly will.Ferguson took nothing for granted, however. Consecutive defeats by Manchester City and Chelsea had hurt, but from the moment Carrick put United ahead there was never a chance of the champions elect losing a third successive match for the first time since May 2001. United’s attacking line-up bristled with attacking menace – Shinji Kagawa provided the vision, Wayne Rooney the craft from deep and Van Persie the quick feet and eye for goal.Yet, when the opening goal did come, it was from an altogether more straightforward source, as Carrick toe-poked a low shot into the bottom corner after Van Persie’s right-wing corner had been helped on by Phil Jones.It was United’s 100th goal of the season it seemed the 101st would follow soon after, as Rooney stung Asmir Begovic’s palms with a rasping drive and then fizzed a free-kick just wide of Begovic’s right-hand post as half-time approached. But Stoke tackled, battled, denied space – Robert Huth heading a free-kick a yard wide and Kenwyne Jones making a nuisance of himself. The work-rate was admirable too, City players often doubling up on United’s main threats like Kagawa, while Van Persie found he had unwelcome, unstinting company. Jonathan Walters scooped his shot over early in the second half, United goalkeeper David de Gea held a drilled effort from Charlie Adam before Jones rifled another effort over, but United weathered the storm. Van Persie found space to collect Hernandez’s clever pass, only to steer his shot into the side-netting from a tight angle.If that was a warning shot, the decisive strike came soon after. Once again Van Persie found space, he bedazzled Andy Wilkinson by cutting in, feinting and twitching his way into the box, where he was brought down by the Stoke defender for a clear penalty.The wind blew the ball off the spot as Van Persie stepped up to end his 751-minute goal drought, but the Dutchman would not be denied, tucking his shot low beyond Begovic’s left-hand and into the corner of the net. He ran to Ferguson on the touchline, where the pair embraced knowing the league title is almost United’s.last_img read more
