It's STEFEN, dammit!

Don't ask me why I dedicated an entire post to just this. It's just really annoying, ok? Penn State's starting offensive lineman, the son of Leo Wisniewski, and nephew of Steve Wisniewski...

His name is StefEn Wisniewski, NOT "StefAn." That's right, college football "experts." Probably the best interior lineman in college football next season, and you're calling him Stefan. Good job! [one idiot in the crowd doesn't get the sarcasm, claps twice before realizing no one else is clapping]

Let's compare the two, shall we? This is Stefen Wisniewski:
"Despite not having played center at Penn State, Wisniewski's talents and productivity are evident, as he received preseason first-team All-Big Ten recognition from Phil Steele's 2009 College Football and preseason third-team All-America notice by Athlon Sports College Football... Wisniewski is one of the squad's premier students, compiling a perfect 4.0 grade-point average during the 2009 spring and 2007 fall semesters in the Schreyer Honors College. He was selected a 2008 second-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American® and earned Academic All-Big Ten honors. He also is active in community service activities. Born March 22, 1989 in Pittsburgh, Pa."
This is Stefan Wisniewski:
"In Hamburg, Wisniewski became involved in the left-wing scene. He protested the detention of RAF terrorists and participated in squattings and in the protests against the conservative Springer press. After the death of Holger Meins, a member of the Red Army Faction, as the result of a hunger strike in 1974, Wisniewski joined the group."
Unless Penn State's starting offensive center is a 57-year-old, Eastern-European terrorist, I think his name is being spelled incorrectly by more than a few lazy folks out there.
