Show 52: Gearing Up for South Africa


Recommended Posts

Show 52 (download) of the Canuck Report, official podcast of the Voyageurs, has been released.

Canada's national team is taking on South Africa for an international friendly on November 20th. We set up a panel Sunday night to preview this game from all angles.

You'll notice that we didn't give our predictions for the game, but never fear. If all goes well our predictions will appear on tonights "Call of the Day."

listened to this one - first time for me (sound card issues on a soone to be replaced PC). Enjoyed the show (shoe? lol). Liked the relaxed format. But an earlier comment made about pronunciation of the players names is something that jumped out at me. De Jong and Simeon were mispronounced (although VPjr got De Jong right). Given the show's focus, I think that this needs to be tightened up. That said, as soon as I get the new PC, I will subscribe because I really enjoyed the listen.

Oh absolutely. I said De Jong the way I did because I thought that was the SCF pronounced it, perhaps I am remembering wrong, I will check up on that. And do you (or anyone) know if Nigel Read pronounced Simeon Jackson name correctly during the Under-20 World Cup? If he did I'll just go have a listen to that... Anyways, glad you enjoyed the show.

Couldn't agree more about the pronouciations. I admit to slipping up on Gerba and De Jong on the show.

I think we need to have an official Canadian players pronounciation post where we spell all the diificult ones out phonetically.

For me, its a result of only ever reading about these players on the internet, so we never actually get to hear their names. I do apologize.
