ok wtf i need help how do you pronounce marchand???

i sound so dumb but seriously, in this video brad says it march-ond but during the games all the announcers say march-and and i just dont know bc when im talking about my fav player i wanna pronounce it right ya know???

BRAD SAID BRAD MARCHAND NOT BRAD MARCH-AND THO

HE SAID IT DIFFERENTLY THAN THE ANNOUNCERS ARE SAYING It IDK

Ooh! Fun fact: when he was a lil baby hockey player, he would play in tournaments in Quebec, where they speak French, and they would say his name when they were announcing him and stuff like a French person would say it. Marshawn kinda thing. He never corrected them, so all the hockey people heard it and assumed that was how it was pronounced. His last name, the way his family pronounces it anyway, is really pronounced in an American sounding way, if that makes sense. Marshand kinda thing, with the “d” pronounced. He said he doesn’t really care, but he said he liked it pronounced all fancy like -> Marshawn. He literally changed the pronunciation of his last name bc Brad Marchand logic. I think recently he changed it back, but I can never keep track. Just go off the last way he himself said it is my suggestion, because when are announcers ever right about that kind of thing? :)

Everyone has their own stuff to work through, and if you don’t think I have mine, it’s just because you never asked.
