The Spelling Bee Has Been Cancelled But We Will Always Have This

The biggest, most anticipated sports event of the years happens every year on ESPN. it isn't the Super Bowl, and it certainly is not the World Series. We are talking BIGGER than that. We are talking about the Spelling Bee. The Scripps National Spelling Bee. This is THE sports event of the year (why else would it be on ESPN?) We were saddened to hear the news yesterday that the Spelling Bee has been cancelled due tot he COVID-19 epidemic. The thought of NOT seeing shy, home schooled kids spell words we never have even heard before breaks our hearts like we are sure it is breaking yours. Then we thought of this incredibly awkward interview from a past winner. It brought a smile to our faces, although it does not make up for the fact that we won't be having a spelling bee champion this year!
