2018 Winter Olympics

First of all, Семён Елистратов's first name is pronounced "Seem-YONE" = Simon. The little dots over an "e" in Russian mean it's pronounced "yo."

Deliberately spelling Семён's first name "Semen" in the Western press, whether you agree with his opinion re performing enhancing drugs or not, is just Trumpian, IMO. We should be bigger than that, plus it makes it appear we don't know how to transliterate Russian.

You find out what someone is really like in "battle," and Olbermann is who you want to be in a foxhole with, Patrick said. "On the air, we had each others' backs," said Olbermann.
-David Goetzl: "Keith Olbermann, Dan Patrick still brothers long after ESPN's 'Big Show'"; MediaPost blog, 4-6-2012
