Did you know that even though the spelling bee seems like a sporting event because it’s on ESPN, it’s not really because you can’t get tickets to it???

Yeah.  So I’m in Washington DC, and guess what else was… The National Spelling Bee.  And I tried to get tickets, and there wasn’t even a link to it.  Maybe i checked too late, but maybe it’s just because it’s not possible.  Which I think is a huge mistake.  I would have paid a lot of money to see these kids compete, especially because of the surprising amount of 13-year-olds with mustaches.

Also, I would go in case a glorious moment like Sameer Mishrah’s from 2008 could possibly be matched. Please watch if you haven’t.

Oh, and if you haven’t watched Spellbound, you’re dumb!  Rent it, netflix it, tvokay.com it.  It’s good.



  1. I ADORE the spelling bee. I blogged about it a couple of summers ago. Such a great, great, great thing.


    PS – You should be really excited about this comment. I’m employed and all.
