Something Pretty Cool Happened to Me Today

Something pretty nifty happened to me today, and since no one I know would appreciate it, I thought I would share it with you, the faceless Internet.

I enjoy listening to Harry Shearer's le Show. During last week's show Harry badly mispronounced White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen's name during his "Apologies of the Week" segment. As a Sox fan I decided I couldn't let this slide and I sent him the following email:


On the most recent episode you mispronounced the name of the Chicago White Sox manager. It is pronounced ghee-YEN, not gwillen.

I'm sure you regret the error.

I enjoy the show,

I was both surprised and delighted to get a reply the same day.

I do, and thanks.

I figured that was the end of it as I assumed that he must have received a lot of mail about it. Well, I must be the only Sox fan who listens to the show as I was even more surprised to hear Harry paraphrase my email at the beginning of this week's show when apologized again for the mispronunciation. I got a big kick out of that.

Thanks for listening.
