Did any of you see the round just before the finals when all remaining Canadians dropped out like flies? What is up with that? Come on kids, do your country proud. I must give them credit, though, because I don't think I could spell half the words that they spelled just to get to that point.

Do you think the kids in the spelling bee contests get beat up or bullied at school more than kids who aren't in the spelling bee? I could just imagine a bully holding one of these kids by the collar and saying, "So you think you can spell, huh? Well let's turn it around and tell me what this word is b-l-o-o-d-y n-o-s-e."
