I'm pretty sure it would either be pronounced "SYEmen" or "seemYON". I'd have to see it written in Cyrillic to know for sure.

Another funny baseball player. Asdrubal Cabrera. He plays for the Indians. I mean, really? The worst part is, they actually pronounce his name "assdribble"

Not a funny name, but a story based on names.
The Isles had a guy named Randy Wood a while back.
The annoucer said, "Green enters the zone with Wood" my friend's reply, "He can tell he's has wood from way up there in the booth?"

Or one time I heard this: "Yzerman enters the zone on Foote" (Adam Foote) It sounded funny, "on foot", like he's taken off his skates.


A journalism entry: Here in Raleigh, the 'Canes beat write was, "Luke DeCock" That name is one in a million.

LMAO...

Altho, thats alot like Pete Peteers.

"Pete honey, did you peter out again? Damn I can't believe the irony of being married with a guy who's named Pete Peteers and actually peters out."

Isn't there a sports writer some where whose name is Dan Lebatard? Which, I suppose, is better than Dan L'enfantdechienne, but not by much.

Haha yeah there is. He pronounces it "LEBatard" instead of the French pronounciation, for obvious reasons. Funny guy, I like him on PTI.

The Habs had a goalie in the system named Les Kuntar at some point. Phoenetically, I think it was Kooontar.

I had a call in show on one day and the caller kept saying that they had to call up Kuntar, using the flat U sound. I think the hosts were Elliot Price and Melnick, and from what I remember, they couldn't even stop laughing long enough to talk to the guy. They completely lost control as the guy used the name about 8 times.

I hate that guy. Never there when you need him. He must have the worst +/- in the history of hockey.
