    NFL Star: They Speak English In London?



    Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder has admitted not knowing people speak English in London.

    [FONT=Verdana,arial,sans-serif][/FONT]
    The NFL player might want to check a map before he gets on board a plane for Sunday's prestige game against the New York Giants at Wembley Stadium. Crowder, who comes from Atlanta in Georgia, may be praised on the field, but confessed geography was not his strong point. He admitted he did not know until now where London was - or that Londoners spoke English.

    This is not to say that he's not a good sportman - an another Beckham then? :lol:

    I use to live in the US and my brother is American, but last time we were over there someone thought that the Czech Rep was just under Scotland and "how we like the drive across the bridge from the UK to the US".

    Go figure... :rolleyes: However saying that having lived on 3 continents, I can say that people like that are everywhere :lol:
