A little lesson in creative pronunciation.

So, as I was watching the Olympics tonight with my parents I had two sort of major surprises.

First, there is an Olympic sport where you just jump up and down on a trampoline and do tricks. Really.

Second, the reigning world champion and silver medalist in trampoline from tonight is a Canadian woman named Karen Cockburn. Really.

The announcers were very careful to pronounce it "Coburn" but I think we all know that this girl was teased mercilessly...and honestly we already know I am totally immature, so I'll come right out and admit that the news story was all the more amusing to me as they refer to her as "Cockburn" throughout the entire thing and I was definitely not pronouncing it "Coburn" in my head.
