    Nothing like watching the already socially awkward be humiliated on national TV.

    If nothing else Milwaukee's Best should be the sponsor of it.

    Re: Spelling Bee

    What's with all the spelling hate?

    This is drama at it's highest. "Spellbound" is one of my favorite all-time movies.

    I have tuned in before. Its impressive what these kids can spell. But it is correct that they are socially inept.

    Re: Spelling Bee

    Why is there such a disproportionate amount of male spellers (compared to the general population) in the contest that have moustaches?

    I'm an enigma... It wasn't anything I tried out for - we had a school-wide spell-off. Then I went to regionals and won. Then they sent us to state. I didn't study AT ALL, but it was amazing how devoted some of these kids and their parents are. I haven't seen "Spellbound" - but if you want to talk about stage parents...

    I'm trying to find the Cheap Seats where Paul Rudd where's the spelling champs' shirts. All I can find is this: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrSZ7eJaQf4]YouTube - Cheap Seats does the 1997 Spelling Bee[/ame]

    Because I know you were all tuning in...

    I was wrong; it is tomorrow.

    That gives the Bookies time to get everything entered.
