When the Steelers appear in primetime games, Ike Taylor, the team's longest tenured starting cornerback, announces himself and the college at which he played in a unique way.
"Ike T Squared University."
Translated loosely, he means "Ike Taylor, Louisiana-Lafayette."
It can be hard for the American-based audience to understand what he's saying, and perhaps that's the same kind of struggle Taylor is having in London.
The USA Today is on-hand as the Steelers are doing their first interviews with the media upon having arrived in London for their Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Upon being asked a question, writes Tom Pellisaro of USA Today, Taylor responded, ""Man, I love your accent. Say it again?"
Taylor would again fail to understand a question being asked, and in all, it's a pretty funny session - which was probably the point.
What European doesn't love a game of "make fun of the stupid American?"
It seems like Taylor's affinity for drawing in attention cleared customs, so something of a normal mentality for him can be taken away from it.
