  1. Can someone please teach the overpaid announcers at major sports events like the Masters how to pronounce the names of the athletes they profess to be covering. Case in point: Peter Kostis' sloppy butchering of hispanic names like Jimenez. It's insulting not only to the players, but also to the fans who have to wonder how guys like Kostis make it on the air in the first place. What an idiot. He sounds like most major leage baseball announcers.
