I'm just curious about Surtain changing the pronunciation of his name. WTF is that all about?

That is the actual pronunciation of his name. He said the other day that it has been mispronounced for so long even his wife says it wrong. lol

Pre-Madonna BS!
I think he wanted attention so that's how he got it!
Some of these Pro's are worse than 2 year old babies.

Surtain mention the real pronounciation of his name during an interview he had with Suzy Kobler during his first year as a starter with the Fins. I guess he's getting tired of it, who wouldn't?

Why? wouldn't you want your name correctly pronounced?

It's a French name, right? If so, (sur-TEN) is correct and we have been screwing it up all these years. Hmmm ...

Names are pronounced the way the owner of the name says it should be pronounced not how you think it's pronounced. Nothing pre madonna about it. Is name is Surtain pronounced Sir-Tan. The announcers kept making a big deal about it. They're the immature ones imo.

Actually everyone has been pronouncing it wrong...

... he just decided to correct everyone now. That's the story I heard on 560 WQAM radio.
