not everyone pronounces there name like it is spelled. Favre?

Well I dont know.... but until today I have always heard it pronounced Plaxico. Plexico gripes me.

But on another thought, he looks great.

It actually is pronounced Plexico. He says it that way when they run through the lineups and each player says his name and where they played in college (and some now, high school).

Plaxico (Plexico) Burress.....Michigan State.

And apparently in the case you stated, it depends heavily if they are educated or not.

whne you are named "plaxico", you by definition lose your right to get mad and mispronunications IMO. What kind of name is that?

Its like lavraneous coles or whatever.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
