It was really hard. They don’t pronounce words correctly over there, like “aluminum” (LISTEN TO THIS DUDE! Do you talk like this, Ross???), which is actually one of the many reasons we left. But love of Auburn can bridge any language barrier (more like Bo-setta Stone), and in the end, last week’s interview with British Dee Ford, the People’s Princess of the Plains, on It’s Pronounced Jordan turned out rather well.
And all God’s people said? ALUMINUM. And War Eagle.
