    Ok so I know everyone calls palhares, PaulHarris or Pal Hares and what not. Being hispanic I know the H is silent so I always called him Palares, but John Anik (however you spell this name) tonight was pronouncing it Puliares. Im just curious, how do you prnounce this 1 trick pony's name. Inquiring minds would like to know

    Pa-lha-res

    The Pa is quite obviuous, just like the Pah.

    The Lh is a very, very tricky phonem for foreigners. It's like a squeezed L, where the tongue goes just behind the teeth in the palatte.

    Res is pronunced with the typical spanish R.

    Nah buddy, you are the man for that. Kind, and brave. You might become the Brazilian UberTS after this, as far as fame goes. Not sure about size, but the camera angle was flattering.
