How do you pronounce "Tournament"?

It's that time of year. Listening to the radio this morning, and the host was pronouncing it one way while the guest talking head was pronouncing it completely opposite.

How do you say it?

TORN-a-ment?

TURN-a-ment?

You left out the best one, though: "Tuhna-ment".

We are either coming down for our 25th wedding anniversary or our 30th. Most likely the 30th because we are not planning on taking the kids.

It'll be odd meeting another Chiefs fan. Kind of surreal to think of, for me.

Toonament, probably (with the "oo" sound from "book"). No "r" sound.
