Boise State QB Kellen Moore was asked by one NFL Scout if he'd rather meet Columbus or Shakespeare? He picked Columbus. @seniorbowl— Josh Looney (@JoshLooney) January 24, 2012
Columbus is an explorer who, many would like to erroneously claim, proved that the world was not flat -- but that's just typical mis-information provided by elementary history school teachers who aren't taught properly. Anyway, Shakespeare helped shape the foundation for modern English, and without that this post would likely sound quite a bit different.
Guess no one can really go wrong with either answer. But just remember the story of Titus Andronicus: all things end in blood.
