hooray for nerds


Check out this wonderful video of Evan O’Dorney, the recent national spelling bee champ, on CNN. The spelling bee is one of the few, if not the only, popular national competitions that rewards something besides looks and made-for-TV social skills, and it is priceless seeing the anchorwoman try to handle this brilliant, yet hopelessly awkward, kid.  He can’t spell the word if you don’t say it right, lady!

  1. That kid was awesome. I laughed so hard when I watched that. It’s such a refreshing change from the precocious mini-adults were used to seeing on TV.
