Marcin Gortat tries to teach Wizards teammates to speak Polish (VIDEO)

Apr 8, 2014, 3:20 PM EDT

Polish is a tough language for most of us to learn (it’s not one of the Romantic languages that flowed out of Latin so we Americans tend to be unfamiliar with its base words).

Marcin Gortat — the Polish Hammer — wants to help out and enlisted some of his Wizards teammates in this video produced by the team. Which is pretty classic.

This weekend the Wizards will host a Polish Heritage night where Gortat will be front and center. I guess that means Pierogi for everyone.

Hat tip to Lang Whitaker at’s All Ball blog, who is no doubt fluent in Polish and six other languages.

    They are finally a team that can compete. Can’t we save this polish stuff for the offseason?

    Or better yet, leave it for back with the crazy days of Gilbert Arenas?

    Not really relevant, but polish night was last weekend at the verizon center. I saw the Bulls go full Munic on my wizards in person.

    Good piece. Marcin Gortat seems like a cool person to hang out with.
