VEEL-leh NEE-YEAH-min-nen

I was trying to remember Kiprusoff's middle name (Sakari!) and found this site that has .wav files with pronounciations of Finnish names! OMG, this will entertain me for hours on end!!! :D fetisha, you definitely gotta check it out!

Uploaded the latest Shark Byte quick quiz segment. Mark Smith answers questions about Scott Hannan, Ville Nieminen (VEEL-leh NEE-YEAH-min-nen according to that Finnish site, hehe) about Vesa Toskala, Jim Fahey about Jonathan Cheechoo, Kyle McLaren about Christian Ehrhoff, Tom Preissing about Rob Davison.

Oh that's good shit. Thank you!

YOKE-EE-NEN

too good.

It's so fun to listen to. I clicked on the NHL players' names, hahaha!

I've seen that page linked to before but I've never actually gone and looked at it until now.

1) We're pretty close with Salmelainen, except they stick a made-up A in there. Sala-melainen.

2) Now I know Heikki Kovalainen is Hey-kee, not Hike-ee.

3) I'm really amused Mikko Luoma is on the list.

4) Niinimaa is really fun to listen to on repeat.

5) There are Finnish swimmers?

What a weird little sing-song language. They're all about pauses and flow. Yes, that is my conclusion after listening to twelve whole names in Finnish.

WHOA, OKAY, I JUST LISTENED TO "KURRI" AND RUINED MY CHILDHOOD. WTF?

Nurminen has to be the best finnish name ever. You sound trashed when you say it. EVERYTIME!

Salmelainen was the most fun to listen to, although I feel like they were suddenly going to say "salmonella".

Them and Swedes! Bork bork bork! I love the pwetty Finnish names though, they sound like elf names, which would make sense since Elvish in LotR is based on Finnish (tersa tells me).

At least his pet chinchilla isn't dead or given away!!!

Man, the Sharks just make me happy. ::cuddles Cheech::

I like how they're all a little strange. (Except for Tom Preissing, who might be the secret leader.)

(Except for Tom Preissing, who might be the secret leader.)

He's the evil genius!

Dude, was Ville trying to impersonate Vesa or does he have like practically the same voice?

And Fahey on Cheech's favorite meal? HE GRABBED HIS CROTCH AND ADJUSTED IT.

AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH. Tom kills me.

I think after 15 years of BFFness, they're terrifyingly the same.

AND OMG HOW DID I NOT NOTICE THE CROTCH GRABBING AND ADJUSTING???

I think I don't believe that my boys have crotches.

I like Tom Preissing a disturbing amount. He's actually pretty near to the franchise record for most points by a defenseman, not that anyone notices, cos' it's him. :P

Oh! And for some reason players come to "consult" him at key points in the game. Nils Ekman right before a penalty shot, and Vesa Toskala before... OT or a shootout or something.

I think I don't believe that my boys have crotches.

Dude, you so cannot say that after the amount of Sharks slash we talk about... :)

It would be tough to ignore if you wrote pr0n.

I am listening to this for hours!!!
