I'm sure I'm not the only one around here that heard that interview. It was right after he signed..Don't recall if it was Paul Allen or Dan Barriero.
I remember PA doing the same thing with JP.

This discussion is relevant and important.

It's definitely Pärisee.

Granlund pretty well personified the team as a whole. He had some of his best shifts, he had some terrible shifts.

Was this Parise's worst game for the Wild? If so, I could still tolerate a season of it. Also, is anybody else starting to suspect he's actually a swarm of bees wearing a disguise?

Setoguchi is the poor man's Parise. I don't know if that means he's two-thirds the bees, or that they're unAfricanized or what. At any rate, he'll get his.

Pull Bouchard off the power play to even out the handedness? What's the point of putting someone else out there to take a shot that's no longer going to be set up?

I hate, hate pulling the goalie that early and after only two goals, but it was as much the correct I-wouldn't-do-it thing to do as picking Cullen for the shootout. Fun fact: These are not the only reasons I am not the coach. Other reasons include but are not limited to a lifetime ban in the American Beekeeper's Club.

That late 2nd period power play was beyond embarrassing. I'm surprised whoever was in the box for Chicago didn't wave off the door opening and say "Nah we're good, thanks." The only thing harder to watch was Harding getting pulled while the commentators said "MS Guy got pulled, possibly for having MS. He's had a tough MS-season, what with the MS and all. It looks like he's mad in there, but I wonder if that isn't just the MS ms-ing with him. I hope nobody in the stands catches it from him. MS MS MS."
OMG best thing I've read all day. I'm going to start saying "The top line of Koivu and Heatley is on the ice. There is also a giant swarm of african bee's. You can't really see them, but they're out there"

Well, maybe we ought to win a game on the road first, before anybody starts saving up for playoff tickets. Y'know?

I had the same thought. I told my gf that I was coming around to the Minnesota way of pronouncing it (pah-REE-zee).

But then I wondered if he was Italian or French...and his dad is JP...which probably stands for Jean-Paul...and we looked it up and on Wikipedia he's listed as Parisé, which is pronounced pah-ree-SAY.

Then again, Favre called himself Farve and Byfuglien is...yeah.

Actually...

I'm pretty sure Favre is actually a French name too, and Brett's pronunciation is a slight bastardization of the original based on a few generations of creolization in Louisiana. Try and pronounce it in French and you can sort of see how it would morph into what we get now, especially if the "ah" vowel turns into an "ar" sound.

.
I thought about that too....Could be that he is of Italian descent...and if so, Par-ee-zee is probably the proper pronounciation afterall going way back, and may have been changed to Par-ee-ZAY after his ancestors settled in Canada.

This had me rolling. It's the most accurate human-insect comparison I've heard in a long time.

Probably only the 4th best one I've heard today.

Really though, how often do you hear human/insect comparisons?

Dunno about wheezy but my French classes tell me it would be pronounced "Fahvr--" like you abruptly cut off the end of the word, unless the e is accented at the end, or unless the next word starts with a vowel, in which case you can pronounce the consonant as the words flow into each other...kind of like if you listen to Oasis' Champagne Supernova, he pronounces it "Supernovar" only when the next word starts with a vowel.

Europeans.

Yeah that's sort of what I was going for. The "vr---" turns into a "v" because the guttural "r" is subtle and hard for Americans to hear or say. Then you're down to "Fahv" and the "ah" is probably pretty nasal in French pronunciation, so it could be mistaken for a British "ar" sound and Americanized to have a hard "r" and there you go.

The Wild now have Star power, and then when playing another team with Star power... they get ratings not just locally, but nationally!

Winter Classic here we come!

BTW - I hope the Wild face the Blackhawks in the playoffs this year if for no other reason than to get an early jumpstart on a new rivalry in the newly formed conference which CL is expecting next season!

As someone who has actually studied French, here's my take on the debate: Take a French word, or a name. Totally **** up the half of it and fade the rest of it out. There's your short guide to pronouncing French.

You're welcome.

Here's an example: "qu'est ce que c'est?" Try to pronounce that. No, you're pretty off. Nope, still off. It's "/kɛs kə sɛ/".

I am by no means an expert, but i'm taking french right now and listening to this pronounciation stuff has had me rolling. I want to pitch in and say how i think some of it would be said in français, but i cant think of how to properly explain it.

But i'll just say it is very entertaining watching all this.

Just remember if you want to speak french, just dont pronounce the last letter. And sometimes not the last two. Its the quickest and easiest way to sound french and i am not lying.

It's more that you stop when you hit the last vowel. That's why, for instance, you pronounce the "t" sound at the end of "une femme intelligente," but "un homme intelligent" ends with a nasal vowel sound.
