Yesterday, we had a debate over how to pronounce Dirk Nowitzki’s last name. Julie & John were dead certain that it should be pronounced with a “W” sound, as it’s the American way, but Tony went with the German pronounciation with the hard “V” sound in place of the W. We got our answer from the man himself. Dirk told us this morning that it’s Nowitizki with the hard “V.”
While he’s famous for his moves on the court, you can catch Dirk and pro-athlete and celebrity friends from around DFW at the 2nd annual Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game. It’s tomorrow at 6:30PM at Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco. It’ll be followed by a fireworks show, so it’s certain to be a great night for all. Some of the celebs and athletes stepping up to the plate are Mark Cuban, Dez Bryant, Terrell Owens, Vince Carter, JJ Barea, Jason Terry, Brandon Carr, and MLB Hall of Famer Goose Gossage! Get your tickets at Ticketmaster.com or at the Roughriders’ Box Office.
Of course, we weren’t going to let Dirk get away with out singing Happy Birthday. Here he is serenading Zazza & Julie with his wonderful singing!
