Our hometown, North Massapequa, is one of the many towns in Plainedge. It can be difficult to spell for some, and apparently, difficult to pronounce.
On our adventure to Raleigh, North Carolina in 2011, the announcer at the competition had some trouble.
"And Team 527! From North ...Mass...A...pi..kwuh..., New York!"
He struggled several times with many butchered pronunciations. So the cheering squad back in the stands decided to help him out. A "Massapequa" chant was started until he eventually heard us and corrected himself.
