Where is Glenn Payette?


#3

Someone should ask Peter Mansbridge if this is some ridiculous running gag.


#4

I liked the part where he said “St. Johns.”


#5

Broadcasting school in Canada has some weird ways of pronouncing cities. Even a major city like Toronto is pronounced by announcers and its own residents in different ways - the second “t” is the contention point.


#6

Well, the T in Dortmund is silent.
And when you reach the bit where the T would be spoken if it wasn’t silent, you blink both eyes.


#7

He looks like he became self-aware of his pronunciation when he is wearing that chartreuse coat.


#8

What second “T”? I’m not even from Turonnah and even I know that.

What’s sad is when they get hold of a name like Abbotsford.


#9

I assume you’re referring to the town of Abbot’s Ford, which I assume is somewhere in the valley even though I can’t find it on any maps.


#10

Well, chartreuse is heavy stuff.
