From the Palm Beach Post’s Tim Graham :

Maybe he was joking, but gregarious Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder (above) confessed today he didn™t know until Tuesday that people spoke English in London.

Crowder, a former Florida Gator and Atlanta native, apparently isn™t sure where the plane is headed when it takes off this afternoon for Sunday™s game against the New York Giants in Wembley Stadium.

œI couldn™t find London on a map if they didn™t have the names of the countries, Crowder said. œI swear to God. I don™t know what nothing is. I know Italy looks like a boot. I learned that.

œI 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.

In Crowder’s defense, much of America if not the educated world might be equally blown away to learn English is both spoken and read in Gainesville, FL.
