Kenny Britt is not a fan of London
By Thomas Moore
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Kenny Britt may have to travel with the team this weekend to London. But he made it clear that no one can make him enjoy it.
The city of London was founded by the Roman empire in 43 A.D., and the capital city of England is now home to more than 8.7 million people.
London has a multitude of tourist attractions, including Buckingham Palace, the 775-room official residence of the Queen; the Tower of London, which has served as a royal palace, prison and place of execution; Westminster Abbey, which serves as the coronation church of England; the British Museum and its 10 curatorial and research departments; and more.
There are also a multitude of dining options, more than 230 professional theaters, and London is also home to 10 professional football clubs.
Somewhere north of 18 million people visit London each year and the Cleveland Browns will join those ranks this weekend as they will be in town to take on the Minnesota Vikings at Twickenham Stadium.

Sounds like a fun time, doesn’t it?
Well, not to Cleveland wide receiver Kenny Britt, who is making his second consecutive trip to London for a regular-season game.
Britt was with the Los Angeles Rams in 2016 when they played the New York Giants at Twickenham in what turned into a 17-10 loss by the Rams. Britt had three receptions for 43 yards in the game and, apparently, an all-around horrible time.
According to Pat McManamon at ESPN, the Browns in general are not fans of the idea of traveling almost seven hours by plane to play a game in a foreign country.
But Britt, in particular, wants nothing to do with the entire enterprise, according to the story:
"“I hated London, hated it. I hated it with a passion. I hated everything about it. I hated the flight. I hated us being there so long. I hated the flight back. I hated the food. You can ask my wife the same thing, and she’ll give you the same answer. Will I get out? No, I won’t get out. When I leave the country I don’t leave the resort anyway. Last time my wife and daughter actually took a trip to Paris. Had a worse time there. It’s a long story, but it was all bad.”"
Judging from Britt’s comments, it seems unlikely that Visit Britain will be asking him to do any promotional work anytime soon.
