Gee-off Bodeen

Years ago, I was working at a newspaper, and I took a call from a guy who was asking about Winston Cup (now Sprint Cup) qualifying.

"How did Gee-off Bo-DEEN do in qualifying?" the guy asked.

He obviously had Geoff Bodine (pronounced Jeff BO-dyne) in an office pool, but he wasn't enough of a fan to know how to say it.

I told the guy where Geoff was on the grid, but I didn't embarrass him. We can't all be fans.
