USA! USA! USA!

University of Florida graduate and Miami Dolphin Channing Crowder on foreign relations:

???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.???

I second that, deimos.
He has creepy eyes.
This looks like a Real Estate agents photo. I say that because I sit here behind a desk at a Real Estate office. I would not buy a house from him. Or even a car.. Maybe a Telly.

No. 13 queencrone says:

I personally know a couple of Dolphin fans that are regretting that right now. However, as bad as things get, they’ll remind me daily about that one year in the 70’s when they had an undefeated season.
Used to be you could at least count Green Bay to be the worst.
I love me some Bret Farve. :-)

No. 14 blah says:

Why do people hate us again? Oh yeah, because we pay douche bag neanderthals like this millions of dollars for knowing that Italy is a boot and black people don’t come from London. If I were getting paid millions of dollars to ram my body against other blockheads like him, I don’t think I’d care about being smart either.

No. 18 queencrone says:

One of my children is looking at colleges this year. I’m going to suggest crossing UOF off the list.
Or maybe, Channing just got special treatment for being a sports star, and it is really a good school after all.

He’s not going to be any smarterer after a few more hits to the noggin.

No. 20 queencrone says:

I am just still stuck on the fact that he is a college GRADUATE. UOF should rethink that.

They probably gave him puzzles instead of maps for his finals.

no way juju, they gave him a coloring book and all he had to do was stay in the lines.

No. 23 maria says:

I think it’s cute, I like it when people admit they’re kinda “uninformed” shall we say on certain subjects, for all we know he can be a genius at physics or something. Honesty is good and this guy was being honest, kudos for that. I guess.

I wish they would confirm or deny if he ate the paste. I admit it was pretty tempting and smelled kind of inviting.

He didn’t graduate, actually. He left early for the draft. Also, he’s always been a kind of insane tool.

Well, it’s not really surprising that he went to U of F with a statement like that. His eyes look about as vacant as his head. Ugh.

Hey don’t poo on UF, I attended and it’s a fine university. The Ivy League of the South if you will… Unfortunately when you’ve had a championship football team the focus is on getting the best, not necessarily the smartest players. His primary education also failed him, and most likely his college “tutors” wrote all of his papers and made sure he passed tests. That’s just how it is people.

OK…Things I know…
1.London…great culture, great museums, and great Indian restaurants
2.Washington D.C…great culture, great museums, and Old Ebbitt (Bar and)(American culture is way too up tight about such things, so eliminate the bar/pub element) Grill and Kramerbooks and Afterwords.
3.Itlalian cuisine is the most satisfying in the world. And they also produce more wine than any other country.
4.Boots are one of the greatest creations ever known. I know. I own more than 100 pair.
