Just Remember: Years Later, Buddiga May Be Suspected of Blood Doping

As those of you in the Erin Andrews fan club already know, its Bee Season. Specifically, the Scripps National Spelling Bee will conclude today after yesterday's harrowing first day of competition. Normally this topic would put us on full nerd alert, but a couple weeks back "Donald," maintainer of the popular Running and Rambling blog, drew some parallels between the 2004 edition of The B (as the kids are writing it, these days) and running that are, in my opinion, both apt and amusing.

So, to recap: this weekend, while track pays for its airtime and the NHL languishes on a network it has to share with bull-riding, the Finals of The B will be shown on NBC (tonight), IN PRIME-TIME. I call that E-M-B-A-R-A-S-S-I-N-G.

Oh, and as long as we're talking about all things spelling bee-related...
