Good Lord, I'll be good but please tell this ain't true

http://www.tsn.ca/broadcast/Schedule...06%202004&TZ=0TSN, Canada's prime sport network has ... spelling at 7:30 pm.

Please tell me this isn't true, this can't be, they can't have a spelling contest on a sports channel.

Please, please, tell me I got it wrong, I will need proffessional help after this

Last Year ESPN aired a spelling bee that PREEMPTED live tennis that had been scheduled on the channel. I was really PISSED.

SPELLING is NOT a sport, thank you! It is a skill.

Many other "SPORTS" also do not qualify. .....To be a sport there must be a DEFENSE!

This excludes Golf, Bowling, Figure Skating. Gymnastics, etc.

In golf, it is the course and the weather. In Bowling it is the condition of the lanes and tha ability of the player to adapt. In Figure Skating it is the whim of the judges and the excecution of the moves on the ice. Same for Gymnastics.
The only intangible is pressure put on a performer by knowing the score of their competetors. But, Theay CANNOT interfere in any physical way to their opponent's scores.

No one playing for the prize, can do ANYTHING to inhibit the other player's performance. They can only concetrate on their own, and make it the best that they can. These are SKILLS, not SPORTS.


There must be an ability for a player to impact the results of the opponent directly. As I said before... Defense.

Football, Basketball, Hockey, Baseball, Pool, and thank God... Tennis has this feature.

Spelling Bees are awesome.

Yes, I am joking... And yes, ESPN does show them.

I reached the regional level of the Spelling Bee one year... one step away from going to Washington.

Which was rather sad, because I only knew English for around 5 years at that time.
