68. Very similar to the situation with football player Patrick Surtain.
In his first two years with the Miami Dolphins, all of the sportscasters were pronouncing his last name "Sur-tane" when in fact he wanted it to be pronounced "Sur-tan". He told the media and they soon complied.

Same with T.J. Houshmandzedeh...he had to tell people to pronounce it "Hoosh-man-za-duh" instead of "Howsh-man-ze-day".
