Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.

Considering over half the derelicts on this Board can't spell their own name (which is why they work at establishements that require Name Tags) it's a Sport!!...you try spelling "muccopolysaccharidosis" while all you countrymen in India are wtaching and see how well you do!

Re: Spelling Bee... Sport or...... (POLL)


I was a big fan of the spelling game until last year's PED revelations at the national bee destroyed my faith.

I now follow darts. The only sport where chemical enhancements are actually encouraged.

Discouraged to see that Rubix Cube and PacMan competitions have been dropped by ESPN.

its cuz ESPN is tryin to attract nerdy kids to the channel
and hopes to make them fantasy football junkies or somethin
even though im a former champion speller, its NOT a sport
you just memorize words
you dont even have to know what they mean that doesnt work in sports
