Is it Hall - a - day? (first syllable rhymes with wall, fall, ball, all) or Is it Hal - la - day? (first syllable rhymes with pal, sal, gal) Seems the sports media pundits are split about 50/50 on this one. Anyone know how he pronouces it? In related pronunciation matters: I have heard Mike Mussina pronounce his last name and about 70+% of sportscasters get it wrong.
