Tomorrow night, on Channel 8, the final round of the National Spelling Bee will be broadcast live. This may sound like paint drying, but it'll be good stuff. (Check out the movie Spellbound).
I hereby adopt Samir Sudhir Patel of Colleyville as The Blog's official speller (and Lord knows The Blog needs spelling help). This kid, now 12, has competed in the event for the last three years finishing 3rd, 27th, and 2nd.
When I was 12, I was on the couch laughing out loud to Gilligan's Island.
