Brian Orakpo is displeased with Dick Stockton

The Washington Redskins beat the Oakland Raiders 24-14 on Sunday, and much joy was had in DC. The game was called on Fox by Dick Stockton and Ronde Barber, and there was a lot less joy shown towards those two, mostly because Stockton had issues pronouncing Brian Orakpo's last name. After the game, when learning about Stockton's difficulties saying his name, Orakpo wasn't pleased, saying that "they suck for doing that" when talking with CSN Washington post-game.

Stockton will be calling an MLB Postseason series this week on TBS with Bob Brenly, though the exact series isn't known yet. If he has to pronounce "Uehara", "Teheran", or "Cespedes", things could get dicey.
