The Delphin Club
Mood:  spacey

So, for those of us who use Henry's 'Delphin' clubs, I have an important announcement that hopefully affects only me.

I have been saying "Delphin" wrong, with the accent on "Del".  Delphin, a German word meaning "dolphin", is actually pronounced DelFEEN, with the accent on "-phin". 

So, as Americans, we need to either use the German and call the clubs delFEENS, or call them Henry's Dolphins.

Take your pick.  During the tour of the Henry's Factory during the EJC, our tour guide, a German speaking English, called them the dolphin club.

Well, thats a very important thing to know.  I'm pretty sure everyone I know pronounces Delphin wrong.  I feel smarter now.
