Andre Smith got lost on his way to Bloomington. The former Alabama Crimson Tide star was driving to a football camp at Illinois Wesleyan when he wisely decided to stop and ask for directions.
According to Pro Football Talk, â€œI said, â€˜How far is Bloomington?â€™â€ Smith told the Bloomington (Ill.) Pantagraph. â€œThey said, â€˜Which Bloomington?â€™ I went, â€˜Ahhh, donâ€™t tell me that.â€™â€
According to the newspaper, “It turns out Smith was closer to Bloomington, Ind., than our Bloomington. Thus, he arrived at IWU at 4:30 p.m., just as the second of Tuesdayâ€™s three sessions wrapped up. Camp co-directors Norm Eash, IWUâ€™s head football coach, and Paul Alexander, the Bengalsâ€™ 16th-year offensive line coach, had sweated out Smithâ€™s arrival for two days amid 90-plus degree heat.”
With that big signing bonus headed his way (assuming he doesn’t hold out), I’d suggest an iPhone with compass or OnStar.
