One of my biggest pet peeves in sports

[1]
Posted: Sep 15, 2015 10:30 PM
 

is when people sound like they are deep throating something when they say "Louisville."

Loovull
Looavull
Lowaaaavvvuullll

May have to watch this game on mute.


I always pronounced it Loo-ee-ville

Then I met a few Louisville students, who informed me that the correct pronunciation by people there is Loo-vuhl.

I don't like it, but it's the truth.

My biggest pet peeve is when Jim Nantz calls me friend.....

"Hello friends...welcome to...:

Dude i have never met you. You arent my friend


Musbergers "You are looking Live..." always got me as well.

Surprised you don't watch every Clemson game on mute then

Given how nearly every commentator in history says Clempson or Clemzon or some combination thereof. Personally I couldn't care less how Louisville is pronounced, as long as Clemson is correct.


We always pronounced Clemson as Clempson.

Heard it that way all my life.

Never pronounced it Clempson

Clemson. There's a stop between m and s, but no p. Maybe a hint of one at most. If I had to choose between "Clempson" and "Clemzon" I'd definitely take the former every time, but would prefer announcers simply say it right.


Wrong.

There's definitely a "p."

"Clemp-sen"

As an example of what I'm talking about, let's take the phrase "ham sandwich". Nobody says "hamp sandwich".

Amen, CLEM SON!!!

It has nothing to do with sports.

That's just how it's pronounced.

Hard to really pull it off unless you're a Louisville native or at least from Kentucky.

Btw, do you know the definition of a sex maniac in Kentucky? It's someone who likes sex better than basketball.

(Heard that one from a native.)

If you score, you get the ball again? What in the world is that about?

How do you feel when folks say

Sackerlina?

2019 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

it's the Tennessee/Kentucky way of pronunciation


Posted: Sep 16, 2015 8:23 AM
 

of places. It's quite distinct.

I once lived in Tennessee and I met somebody from "Shulbuhvulle". I said "What? Where is that?"
My friend said it was Shelbyville.

They also pronounce "Lafayette" as La-FAY-ette, not LA-FI-YET, like you would think.

Of course, us South Carolinians have a unique way of saying "Clinton".....it's more like "Clinnun"

So you're telling me that the other person in this scenario is having a good time?

Touchdown scored. 2 1/2 minute commercial. Kickoff into end zone for touchback followed by another 2 1/2 minute commercial.

No wonder the league makes 800 trillion dollars a year. They charge tens of thousands of dollars for ads and all you get to see from home is whether or not the kicker can fly it into the stands
