The Scripps National Spelling Bee has reached the final round. The nation will watch as a group of young geniuses make the rest of us feel simple minded by spelling words that most of us have never even heard. While our two-time champ is sitting this one out, the field is full of future interesting characters vying for scholarship money to send them on the path to becoming doctors, lawyers, rock scientists and future We B-E-E Spelling Champions.
Check out Grantland's scouting report on the field.
Oh, and maybe you want to spend a few minutes watching the Bee. You may get a sneak peak of some words that will embarrass our contestants at the next event.
We B-E-E Spelling wishes the best of luck to all the finalists of this year's Scripps National Spelling Bee!
