Off Topic: Dream Job and Name Pronunciation

I havent really watched that Dream Job show till tonight casue I think reality TV is pathetic, and the contestants are all drama kings and queens, but watching tonight got me pretty sick of Al Jaffe, who hires everyone at ESPN. I hear ESPN commentators mess up names of players all the time and am constantly correcting them, as they mostly mess up hockey names. When Jaffe has the balls to say that ESPN would never hire a guy who cant pronounce names correctly and for the past three or four seasons Gary Thorne has been saying Dale PURRINGTON during every Rangers telecast it pisses me off. Hes says its unprofessional to say names wrong, yet he allows Thorne to do it all the time. I know its not huge, but they are the high and mighty ESPN. Ok, thats my rant.

Al Jaffe and Lavar Arrington are the two worst judges on the show...
