…The Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee. It amazes me that a spelling contest actually gets coverage on ESPN and ESPN 2. However, I find it an amazing form of entertainment (ok, I guess you can call me a nerd) that offers a breath of fresh air from the normal daytime programming. It is neat to see the middle school aged children vie in this unique contest.
Did you know there was a documentary released last summer that documented one of the recent spelling bees and followed around these unique personalities as they persued their dream of being spelling bee champ??
Well there is!!
The documentary is called Spellbound and is truly say that is a unique documentary and a must see. I think my oldest saw it a few times while it was still in the theaters… 🙂
Look for it today at Amazon.com.
