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.

Adding this article, which I just came across on ESPN's site:

Keith Olbermann receives 2015 Genesis Award
Jay Nesheim
ESPN
March 30, 2015

KEITH OLBERMANN might love dogs as much as he loves sports. The ESPN2 personality has gone out of his way to make that clear -– like the time he wore an El Paso Chihuahuas’ Bark in the Park jersey on his show Olbermann and helped Chia the chihuahua get a wheelchair.

His efforts are being recognized by the Humane Society of America as the group has honored him with a Genesis Award.

Each year, the HSUS honors people in news and entertainment media for their outstanding reporting and creative portrayals of animal protection issues. Olbermann has been cited in the category of TV Sports Commentary for his series of no-holds barred looks at the Sochi Olympics and the mistreatment of stray dogs and a segment on Centerplate CEO Desmond Hague, who was reprimanded by the company for abusing an animal.

Other winners of this year’s Genesis Award include Jon Stewart, Ricky Gervais and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Olbermann, who has two dogs of his own, said: “There may be other meanings to life, but the only one I’m completely sold on is that we are here to take care of dogs and they are here to take care of us.”
