I think the British (and prob Aussies and Kiwis) pronounce it 'rally'. The Americans/Yanks/Seppos (and prob the Canadians/Canucks as well) pronounce it rah-lee,,,,

Can someone from Yankeeland/SLV-Land pls confirm this..

Confirmed. Except in NC they say it faster, and the "lee" part isn't "lee" more like a "lah" Rah-lah...something along those lines.

Brother in law moved near there several years ago. He still says Rah-lee, but his NC buds do not!

Will be driving down from DC with Mrs. Racin' and meeting up with the Hickory and Raleigh folks. Weather forecast looks great so no boats needed. Will orange hot dogs be present?

I've been in Raleigh for about 8 years and never heard it called Rah-Lah. Maybe out in the sticks they do, but in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and surrounding area, it's Rah-lee. Though I have heard it pronounced "Rahw-lee" by a few old timers.

Trivia tidbit: Sir Walter is credited with introducing tobacco and potatoes to Europe as well as naming the state of Virginia.

I stand corrected! My Brother in law doesn't exactly live in the sticks, but he's an hour away. They all do say more of a hybrid between 'lee' and 'lah', and much faster than I do! Didn't know how to spell it phonetically...

Sorry 'bout that!!

Why can't the other SetListVision Committee members be as informative as you, BT?

Oh, they are ... what d'you call it? 'Travelling'.

Actually BT and AMIW comprise the SETLISTVISION research subcommittee. Other members have different tasks. :)

Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, Real Madrid won in real football against Bayern M√ľnchen (Champions League). Maybe one or two of you are interested in spite of the fact that show start is nearing.
