    No, seriously that's the dude's last name but can somebody explain to me how that is pronounced "Coburn?"

    For those that are wondering what I am talking about, there is a gymnast from Canada with that last name. The announcers kept saying Coburn, I was just wondering if they just don't want to say cock on TV.

    It's pronounced 'Cock-Burn'. Maybe they're being overly PC or nervous about the FCC?
