Foo-key. Got it...

What's in a name? Fuck proud of his

What's in a name?

For Medicine Hat College Rattlers men's basketball forward Guilherme Carbagiale Fuck, the answer is simple: pride.

While the Brazilian basketball star's name may stand out on paper, it's pronounced "Foo-key" and is of German origin.

"It doesn't mean what people think it means," said Fuck. "In German it means fox."

Given the fact that Fuck's name could bring about unwanted confusion, the college initially opted to use his middle, or first-last name, Carbagiale.
