    I have no favourites, I am just sooooooooooo humbled by the young people in that bee. I thought that I was a good speller until I heard some of the words.

    The way in which some of them are able to get to the word by asking for the root language etc. etc. is amazing.

    If you haven't seen the documentary, 'Spellbound', you'd probably love it. It follows several spellers on their way to the national bee a few years ago. Wonderfully done.
