Why it's pronounced "ZAH-vee-ay"
So why does the newest Jayhawk pronounce his name "ZAH-vee-ay"?
Maybe it's been discussed, and maybe I missed it, but I didn't honestly know that answer until I found this video while surfing yesterday (Skip to the 1:40 mark in the video if you're impatient).
Obviously the video's a bit old (Xavier is not going to Memphis as the video suggest, so let's not start any more rumors), but still it's a nice profile on Xavier to learn a little more about him and his family.
Props to Mike Rigg, who produced the video. Just a few years back, Rigg was a sports anchor alongside Kevin Romary at 6Sports here in Lawrence.
