Isn't it kind of sort of really cocky how we Americans will call other countries by names different than what the countries call themselves? Like, where the hell to we get off saying "CYOO-bah," when everybody down there says "COO-bah?"

I mean, I get it if we don't have that phoneme in English. Like, an english speaker might have trouble prouncing the "r" in "Brasil," or the "r" in "France."
But come on, guys. We can say "OO"

I tried to call Peyton and tell him I'd come over if he made nachos since Eli is playing, but I don't know his number.
