Must-See TV

Filed under: — site admin @ 8:53 PM UTC

Tomorrow is the one day of the year I watch ESPN: the finals of the National Spelling Bee will be on from 10:00 to 12:00 and 1:00 to 3:30 Eastern time. I probably won’t blog it, or watch the whole thing, but I’ll certainly watch parts of it. How spelling qualifies for showing on an all-sports channel I will never understand.

  2. It’s competitive spelling, of course.

    That makes it a contest of skill, and sporting enough, I imagine.

  3. My family and I recently watched the DVD ‘Spellbound’ – a film about the national spelling bee. The whole family then wanted to see the outcome. Too bad with al of the cable channels there isn’t one to cover the whole thing. Perhaps just some highlights each year would make a great ‘show’.
