How to Spell "KeiVarae" in Two Easy Lessons


Recommended Posts

OK, I am a bit of a stickler when it comes to spelling our players' names correctly. So I thought we could have a little tutorial that might help us all get on the same page, assure that we are talking about the same student athletes, and impress all the players and/or parents that might visit this site.

 

First up, KeiVarae Russell.

 

Very tough one to memorize, so my first tip is to go here: http://www.und.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/nd-m-footbl-mtt.html That is ND's updated roster. Click on the Name column header to alphabetize the names, and then scroll down to the "k's." Write it down, or just copy and paste.

 

Here's a picture to help:

But if you insist on memorizing it... Note that the first name is broken into two primary parts.

First, the "Kei" part. This is the very first thing you come to, so it is key. Get it, "key"? But spell it with an "i" instead of a "y" like some crazy European would.

 

Next comes one of those capital letters in the middle of a name: "V." "V" as in Varae or "victory." I always think of the Spanish I know for this one. "Vara" looks like "para" which means "in order to" or "for" in Spanish. We are thinking of para "in order to" remember the Vara in KeiVarae's name. End that whole hot mess with an "e" just for the halibut, and you got it. Lots of things end in an "e" so it's not that farfetched, right?

 

"Russell" is pretty simple. Two "s" and two "l". Double your pleasure, doublemint gum. 2/3 of the consonants get repeated. Just remember that all of the consonants in play get doubled. I mean, who in their right mind would double up the "R", right?

 

So it is Kei - Varae - Russell... KeiVarae Russell. Everybody repeat that 5 times.

 

It's a tough one, but I guess he's earned it.

Thank you very much 2lakes for getting that screen shot against MSU right. I could not do it right.

 

KeiVarae definitely influenced that ball. Added to the fact his arm came down and prevented the receiver from closing his arms as Russell finished his legal play on the ball.

 

I'm a big KeiVarae advocate because no one could of reasonably expected this freshman running back to turn into a starting corner. They worked on his tackling in the bye week but his development has been a pleasure to watch this young man show so much courage under fire.

You're welcome. Just googled images, tho'.

 

Lesson #2:

 

Kei because young Russell's play has been kei to our D's success

 

V for Victory, much Victory on account of our great D. Capitalized because, well, Victories are important, right?

 

ara Wow. That's kind of Halloween spooky that Parseghian's first name is in there (since we're at it, this is how you spell Parseghian).

 

e for the excellent job that true freshman has done.

 

Russell like Russell athletic apparel for active men and women. Two "s" because KeiVarae is super special. Two "l" like L.L. Bean Classic Men's Clothing for every season.

 

Put it all together, and whadya got? Our starting cornerback, KeiVarae Russell:

Hey, I can spell DeVaris Daniels. How about that? Took so much flack for my failed attempts.

 

OK..let me try..and not cheating. KeiVare Russell~~ OK, I cheated. Sorry.

 

Okie, give it another shot. Remember that great coach we had in the '60's and '70's. His name was not "Ar Parseghian," was it?
