WASHINGTON — English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom and the United States. That doesn’t mean those two versions sound alike.
With differences in pronunciation, inflection, terminology and slang, the two dialects can seem almost completely foreign. That’s where Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins comes to the rescue.
A veteran of U.K. travel, Cousins starred in this public service announcement released by the team earlier today:
Holiday = vacation.
Car park = parking lot.
Brilliant! = ??
Cheers, mate = thank you.
Australia = London
Cousins may not have a future in geography or foreign relations, but at least he can help teammates with the local lingo.
Speaking of foreign relations, it looks like Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and his wife Tanya Snyder had a high-profile dinner date on Friday evening:
Hopefully, the Redskins will get through the next 36 hours to kickoff without causing international calamity.
