When interviewing Channing Crowder of the Miami Dolphins, he stated that until this past Tuesday that people in London spoke English. He stated: I couldn’t find London on a map if they didn’t have the names of the countries,” Crowder said. “I swear to God. I don’t know what nothing is. I know Italy looks like a boot. I learned that.
To have a little more fun with the press he goes on to say, I know (Washington Redskins linebacker) London Fletcher. We did a football camp together. So I know him. That’s the closest thing I know to London. He’s black, so I’m sure he’s not from London. I’m sure that’s a coincidental name.
Channing Crowder was a University of Florida graduate and reportedly he was a National Honors Society member and held a grade point average of 3.5 and he graduated early.
