    I'm guessing Florida wasn't pushing the books to much for this guy.

    Nice double negative in the quote as well.


    Crowder learns he won’t need translator in London
    By Tim Graham | Wednesday, October 24, 2007, 07:54 PM

    Maybe he was joking, but gregarious Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder 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.

    “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.

    He probably still won't understand what people are saying, anyway.

    Hey, he left UF after his sophomore year. If he would have stayed those extra two years he would have been a freakin' genius. It's his own fault.

    First comment leads me to believe it could be a joke

    In fact after googling his name and wonderlic, I'd say this is indeed a joke.

    Word has it that he was tutored in geography by Miss Teen South Carolina....

    In fairness, many U.S. Americans don't have maps.

    OK, I guess the joke is on us and the poor writer.

    I have a joke for him, though, and the punch line is Cleo Lemon.
