The September surprise? Reggie Fils-Aime is not pronounced “Phils-Amy”

I’ll be honest, I have been known to misquote movies, sing false lyrics, and mispronounce the names of “Adewale Ogunleye” and “T.J. Houshmandzadeh.” While I can usually sqeak by with most names by winging it the phonetic way, one name has always kicked my ignorant American ass: Reggie Fils-Aime (Fee-Suh-May).

Sure, I thought I knew how it was pronounced, but now I will walk away from the computer with my head hung low. Quite low. I’m just glad that I haven’t mispronounced his name to his face, yet.
