Once Again Albany Is Mispronounced On National Television

I can't tell you how many times I've had to correct people on how to pronounce Albany, NY. What's most shocking about that to me is that it's the capital of New York State. You learn that in grade school, so how many teachers are teaching kids around the country the incorrect way to say this?

Recently "Saturday Night Live" mispronounced Albany on a sketch. Really? You're in New York City. Only a couple of hours away! Please learn how to say it.

The most recent offense came on Friday night's episode of Jeopardy. Alex Trebek said AL-bany. AL! I get that Albany has only one L, BUT, it's ALL. It's always been ALL and always will be ALL-BA-KNEE.

It almost immediately caught the attention of people on social media.

Hopefully one day we're all able to forgive Alex for this. Until then, Wheel of Fortune is our game.
