Marc-André Cliche (pronounced "Cleesh") plays for a hockey team here in Maine, and must constantly battle to keep the accent off his final E.
Every year, when the 19-year-old from Rouyn-Noranda, Que., arrives in Lewiston, Me., where he toils for the Maineiacs of the Quebec major junior league, it's the same routine.
"I get my new jersey and I have to take off the accent because it's already on there," he says, laughing. "It's weird."
"In Moncton, for four years they've been calling me Cliché when I score a goal or whatever," he says, shaking his head. "It gets me so mad. But whatever, you can't do anything about it." [Link]
