Grab your dictionary, heat up some popcorn -- it's spelling bee time!

There's excitement in the air. This nerd's favorite annual sporting event*, the Scripps National Spelling Bee, starts today. Thirteen year old Samir Patel is an early favorite to take top prize.

Don't forget to start coughing around your co-workers today so you can call in sick tomorrow and watch the semifinals live on ESPN between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., then tune back in for the finals from 8 to 10 p.m.

* It's a sport because it's on ESPN. That's the litmus test, right?

Well, ESPN also showed the national championships of Magic: the Gathering... so it what you make of it.

Either one's still more exciting than curling.
