Is it weird that I’m looking forward to the Scripps National Spelling Bee? Shut up, I love that crap! It makes your brain work! What’s better than a bunch of tweens and teens spelling words I can barely pronounce? My favorite part is when they ask for the “country of origin” and can figure out how to spell a word simply based on whether it’s latin or french. Those little whippersnappers are some smart cookies.
I wish ESPN didn’t put the word on the screen when the kids stand up there and stare at the ceiling though. I sometimes want to attempt to spell a word myself, but I don’t have the patience to close by eyes. I need to see those kids think!!
ESPN, ya’ll. Wed & Thurs. The finals are even on ABC during primetime this year!
It’s good stuff.
