POLL: How do you pronounce "Graal"?

After many years of playing this game, the question still lurks in my mind. From the early days when there was only one known server to play on, and the largest quest was to seek out the four Holy Grails (pimp-cup-looking things). And it would have only made sense to pronounce "Graal" as "Grail". But of course, after the first few months, my tongue became rather lazy, and I began pronouncing it as "Grahwl". Then it became annoying that I wasn't pronouncing it correctly, and I just referred to it as "The Game" or "That Addictive Game" for about 2 more years. Then eventually, and even today, I simply say "Grahwl" again.

So you guys and gals have heard my story, on the subject. Now, it's time to hear yours'. How do you pronounce "Graal"?

I still say the originally thought pronunciation, 'Grail', as from Classic's four holy grails... 'Grahl', "Grr-awl', 'Gra-hl', and that type of pronunciation sounds sort of like something out of a Pokemon game to me... then again it's probably just my opinion
