National Spelling Bee 2014

It’s Bee Week! Tomorrow in Washington D.C. begins the 2014 Scripps National Spelling Bee, with 281 spellers competing over three days for the title of National Champion. In years past the blog has proudly rooted for our very own Andrew, emmatheduck, and speller73 (2008 was a real nail-biter). Are there any bloggers competing this year? Will the Society for Simplified Spelling be protesting again?
