Okay, it is neither Blizz'ard, as in snowstorm, nor Blizzard' with accent on second syllable. That was common pronunciation in the 70's and sounds much cooler than plan old Blizzard. So it is Blitz'ard? Got to practice that as I have a pair of Titan 8.2's.

The word I have trouble with is Provelone. My local deli refuses to pronounce the last e. But the work is Italian, no? So it should be Provelon'ne, shouldn't it? LewBob

Btw, Blizzard will finally have a "standard" owner (instead of the Salzburger Raiffeisenverband Bank) in April.
It´s a new company (IQ-Sport) where former Fischer manager Karl Hofstätter (future CEO) owns 1/3 and 2/3 belong to the Stöckl family of Austria.
