Is "CRAPPIE" pronounced with a hard "A" or a soft "A"? Actually, I enjoyed meeting Wally Marshall, aka "Mr. Crappie." He's a fine fellow, indeed.

So what does Mr Crappie do?
I mean, why should we care what Mr Crappie does?
I don't want to know how he got the name. Where were you to shake his hand? Is he "on tour" or something?

I'm envious, Bob. I've always wanted a chick to ask me, "So what does Mr. Crappie do?"

Who cares? A Crap is still a "Crap", no matter how you dress it up!

actually the hard "A" sound is as we pronounce the vowels and is found in the word "PAY" whereas the soft "A" sound is as we say the word "PAT"....which opens up the third pronunciation of the word and the preferred in the southwest U.S....that of the "AH" sound as in the word "CROP"....eventhough it is spelled "crappie"....it is pronounced as if it were spelled "CROPPIE"....and very tasty when properly fileted, cornmealed and deep fried....
