    This is what it sounds like to me, but I am not sure about Gerome's last name. It sounds like he is a hockey player but I've never heard of him. Not surprising since I don't follow sports. That was a funny video, by the way.

    "Come here, Ricky, you hunky man"

    Re: listening, can't make out some words

    I think it's funny too.

    I'm still not sure about "come here", because I think I hear an "r" before "here". But it's not very important. Thanks for your help!

    I have one more question. She says "hockey games" and he uses "hockey matches" as if he was correcting her. I think it's a joke but I don't get it.

    Jarome Iginla - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    She definitely says "come here." More like "c'mere."

    The humor is that he is pretending to be manly, but he is using the wrong words for things. Like he says "match" instead of "game" (Americans/Canadians say "game") and calling a hockey stick a "baton."

    Wow, I was way off on that name. Now that I see what it is supposed to be I can kind of hear it, but I would not have guessed that it was Iginla.

    Don't worry about that. Hockey has lots of players with strange sounding names. I wouldn't expect someone who wasn't familiar to pick that up.
