Baltimore Ravens Le'Ron McClain sparks book award
I may be a few thousand miles from Baltimore, but I'm keeping track of the Baltimore Ravens -- albeit belatedly. After this week's game, I'm ready to award Read Street's first annual Know Your Books award to Channing Crowder of the Miami Dolphins.
In Sunday's game, he accused Ravens fullback Le'Ron McClain of spitting on him. After the game, Crowder took off on a rant againt the referees, saying they were visually challenged. Among the choice words for the officiating crew: "Stevie Wonder and Anne Frank. Who's the blind girl? Helen Keller, then. I don't know who Anne Frank is. I'm mad right now. I'm not as swift as I usually am."
I say the National Football League should require Crowder to read "The Diary of a Young Girl" and "The Miracle Worker," and submit a 500-word essay exploring the similarities and differences between Anne Frank and Helen Keller.
