04/30/2012 - What sixth-round pick Christo Bilukidi lacks in football experience, he thinks he made up for in world experience. The son of an Angolan diplomat, Bilukidi was born in Angola and has lived in France and Brazil before settling in Ottawa. He speaks fluent French. Bilukidi wouldn't have done it any other way. "It made me cultured because I lived in so many different cities and countries and stuff, Bilukidi said. "It definitely opens my mind more, because I learn more about different people. It makes me more humble and makes me appreciate people far more than if someone who just lived in a small city and didn't know what was going on around the world." - The Sports Xchange
