ESPN Zone Sports Spelling Bee


Ogunleye…hmmm. Can you use it in a sentence?

I will be participating in the ESPN Zone Sports Spelling Bee on Thursday, May 28 at the ESPN Zone here in Chicago. And I will be gunning for more than $1,000 in prizes, but I mostly hope to win food. The action begins at 6:30.

50 contestants will try to spell the names of local and national sports figures, coinciding with the 82nd Annual Scripps National Spelling Bee in DC. I consider myself to be the favorite, because I once placed 3rd in a “Word of the Day” competition in 4th grade. And I think everyone else may be drunk.

If you want to take me on in the competition, just email and include your name, address, phone number, birth year and tag it with ESPN Zone Chicago. Or you can also register in-person by visiting the retail store at the ESPN Zone.

On to more important matters…What kind of PEDs should I take?
