Evening, friends! What a night we have ahead of us! The main event, for me, is the finals of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, which will be on ESPN at 8:00. I watched the semifinals this morning and am so excited for tonight's closing rounds. If you're watching that with me, I encourage you to comment along. An hour later, the evening's basketball starts. I'll be flippin' back and forth, though I'm pretty certain the basketball action won't be nearly as intense as the spelling is. These kids are all in! Win or go home! Lena Greenberg! Snigdha Nandipati! Gifton Wright!
Anyway, here's the info for the game:
Really, though. The Bee is the greatest. If you've never checked it out, I highly recommend at least flipping over. Anyway, post your comments here, check out those blogs, and don't post any illegal streams of basketball or spelling (especially because the spelling is available online legally).
