I'm going to throw something at the TV if the announcer doesn't figure out how to say Blake Pietila's name. It is NOT Pee-etta-la. It's Pah-TILL-uh. Argh...driving me crazy!

No, it's not, actually. That's the Americanized way of saying it. His grandfather clarified the proper pronunciation, which the announcers are using. They discussed it during one of the preliminary round games.

Edit-- WAY TO GO USA!!!!

Well, I'm a Finn, and none of the 100+ Pietilas I know use that pronounciation. We almost all use the Americanized way of saying our names.
