watch indian-american kids sweat.... its the national spelling bee now on espn!
OMFG. Way to make me feel stupid Dave. We tuned in at 9:00 and holy cow!
"Is this an Irish Prime Minister?"
the machine! So close!!!!
He's a witch! Burn him!
Wait did he lose? Am I behind? The machine is still rocking in my time zone....
Who are these kids and what do their families to to them? How does this happen?!
Okay, I'm honestly getting a little freaked out. Do they know everything?
Wow. Thanks Dave.I didn't think it, but Bree thought the Machine threw it so they would tie, and once she mentioned it I couldn't help but agree. Very complex how far their knowledge outstripped their experience.
sorry. missed the thread. i actually watched the spelling bee over the basketball. i did hate how he kept calling him "the machine." less clever than listening to a football color commentator although admittedly they have more practice and more points of reference. though i did want to smack the other kid for saying hi every time he got up. mix it up once or twice, at least. he must now 100 words for hello!
it was fascinating that he choked when he could have finished him off twice. i doubt he threw it just based on his victory dance at the end. completely ignored the older kid at first when he reached out to congratulate him.
ryley and i were biting our nails. i think the younger kid could have taken it, but even if he threw it it may have not been totally intentional. that's a lot if intensity up there for an 11 year old. check out spellbound and akeelah and the bee.
I watched a small part too, human computers......decided to skip it watch a Jet Blue feature film on London and Zombies in the 1700-1800's
