I'm beginning to think there's a contest for everything...

I'm sorry but the National Spelling Bee belongs on ESPN. Remember two years ago when the kid fainted on stage, then came to and started spelling the word? I'm not kidding. The National Spelling Bee's a contact sport, ok, between the contestant and the floor, but a contact sport nonetheless!

We turned on the TV tonight to discover the finals of the spelling bee are now on ABC - this isn't Extreme Family Home Makeover people! What's next? A Simon Cowell look-alike at the Spelling Bee, making sardonic comments after a kid misspells a word -

[in phoney English accent] I'm sorry to be laughing, but that looked like a 14-year old sack of potatoes trying to spell 'logorrhea'...
