So I was reading UM Hoops basketball practice notes (MGoLicious), and at the bottom, they had some stuff about Evan Smotrycz, which I can neither spell nor ever recall how to pronounce. As such, my brain always goes straight to "Evan Metrics", which we all know is actually correct anyway. However, it did get me thinking about what other players have names that people stumble over. We're not replete with Timoshenko Biakabutuka's anymore, too bad, but I'm sure there are still some.
I actually have problems with T-Wolf. I dunno why, but I invariably stumble whether in speech or in writing and I try to put an "r" in there and make it Woolfork.
