Channing Crowder Kills Me

I have a bunch of stuff to post, but I had to let it all slide for a couple hours in order to share this amazing story from the Palm Beach Post. It highlights my boy, Channing Crowder (former Florida Gator and current Miami Dolphin), and his hopefully joking attitude.

When asked about the upcoming game in London, England against the New York Giants, Crowder had this to say:

“I couldn’t find London on a map if they didn’t have the names of the countries, I swear to God. I don’t know what nothing is. I know Italy looks like a boot. I learned that. 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.

“He’s [Dolphin’s practice squad receiver, Marvin Allen] from London? I knew he was from over there because he talks funny. I was surprised (when they met) because — I don’t want to say he didn’t look the part because that’s a stereotype — but he didn’t look the part. I heard him talk, and I thought he had a recorder and was just mouthing.”

Somewhere in the interview, he also mentioned that he didn’t know until Tuesday that people spoke English in London [Crowder learns he won’t need translator in London].

I figured that I might as well help a brother out. So here you go Channing…a map of Europe just for you. London is located in the UK, which is colored blue (I feel like I am in a Southwest Airlines commercial).
