Ivan the Terrible

Hockey Dec 28, 2021

Here's a TV freeze frame from the World Juniors Championship.

Okay, so here's the dialogue:

Interviewer: What's your first name?

Player:  Ivan.

Interviewer:  Nice to meet you, Ivan.  What's your last name?

Player: Ivan.

Interviewer: No, I know your first name already?  I was asking about your last name.

Player:  It's Ivan.

Interviewer:  Okay, Mr. Ivan.  I must have misunderstood.  Then, once again, what's your first name?

Player:  Ivan.

Interviewer: Now, I'm totally confused.  Okay, let's try this.  What's your middle name?

Player: Ivan.

Interviewer: That's it.  I quit.

Oh, and yes – he really is IVAN IVAN.
