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.

LOL, Keith, your stock just went up.

Be interesting to see if this ends NBC's tacit gag rule on mentioning him.

10th anniv of Tim Russert's death

"MSNBC's Keith Olbermann's performance following Russert's death might have been his finest moment in broadcasting. Honest, at times heartwrenching, Olbermann weaved his way through guest after guest who spoke about Russert's career and life.
