Is the Roman Alphabet on its way out? ESPN is now posting material in Cyrillic for today's КХЛ broadcast

Start your Cyrillic keyboards and reading in the said alphabet! ESPN has announced a deal with the Континентальная Хоккейная Лига for ESPN broadcasts (not Webcasts) on selected afternoons. The first КХЛ broadcast is today.

Meanwhile, locks, which are typically placed on MTV networks, are now being placed on Comcast networks based on need.

UPDATE: Here's a review of ESPN's coverage of the game.
