What does NHK stand for?
What does the NHK in NHK Trophy stand for?
And on another note, I have no real-life figure skating friends, so I've never had to pronounce Trophée Eric Bompard. In my head, I just say Trophy Eric Bompar (with a silent d).
NHK stands for Nippon Housou Kyoukai, which means Japan Broadcasting Association.
As for Trophée Eric Bompard, imagine Trophay Eric Bompar and then subtract the "y" part.
Oh, that's rather disappointing. Something has always bothered me about naming things after companies, like Rostelecom. And after a bit of internet searching, I just realized that Eric Bompard is a company too ...
leave no stone unturned
yes but it is kasmir clothes, warm and soft, it is always better than Bofrost
I always liked Lalique, it was such a pretty name!
Somebody has to be the sponsor and payout the prizes / fees. Most major league sport stadiums in the States are named after companies too.

Trixie Schuba's biggest fan!
LoL Remember when, in the late 90's, Skate America was "Smart Ones Skate America?" Ironically, during those years, we had Eva Marie Fitze of Germany and Yulia Lavrenchuk of Ukraine competing at SA...and both were known to be bulimic.
