If We Didn't Know Better, We'd Swear He Attended Morningside

During Sunday's 5:30 p.m. newscast on KMTV, did Devon "Lockjaw" Patton really say that a plane was registered to someone in "Illinoise"? After further review, the call on the field stands; fifteen yard penalty, loss of down, and lots of questions about how someone with an anchor gig can get to this point in his life without being able to properly pronounce the names of all 53 states.

Maybe they are just a really big Sufjan Stevens fan...

Why don't you call Devon up and axe him pacifically what he said?

Looks, like assman is just doing some long-distance sniping. Where's *your* blog, tough guy? Give us some incredibly detailed, exciting and witty information.

I sure hope Luke has slept off that crunk-juice belligerence! .... Back on topic, according to my Websters Ninth Collegiate Dictionary (copyright 1985) Illinois \il-e-noi also -noiz\. Looks like Lockjaw Patton will be sayin' it off-TEN.

Interesting. Not sure what they're smokin' at Websters, but the prevailing pronunciation in most of the U.S. is, as the Oxford American Dictionary suggests, "il-i-noi" (emphasis is theirs).

I am curious where Rebecca Kleeman went to school. Sunday she pronounced Beatrice NE as
Bee-uh-tris - Wow

In regards to the Sufjan Stevens "Come on Feel the Illinoise" album cover...why is there a goat on the side?

The cultivated minds of the coasts utter soda whilst the unwashed masses of the upper midwest, yearning to be free, spew the word "pop" instead.

Gotta' be a moral in there somewhere... or at least close by, perhaps over yonder 'cross the holler.
