I don't care at all about football, but whenever I happen to flip past any coverage about it (especially now, since he's retiring) there they are: legions of people pronouncing his name as if the "r" was before the "v". Well, I thought, maybe they're just attempting to pronounce this vaguely Gallic looking name and bumbling. Am I totally going nuts here? It's like trying to pronounce "chevre" cheese as "carve" cheese. If they must mispronounce it so badly, why not call him "Favor"? What gives?
