If there’s one thing the Scripps National Spelling Bee — which got started this morning — is known for, it’s spelling. And if there’s two things, it’s spelling and bombastic celebrations. Look at these kids go wild!
Damn, Ned, why you gotta do ‘em like that. Show some grace, son. Show some grace.
Honestly? I didn’t even know you could show that kind of violent, unrestrained lunacy on television.
A celebration like this should come with a warning: Not Suitable For Children.
Oooooooh! Motherfucker spelled “Laodicean!”
Anamika Veeramani, goin’ HAM.
Hold up. Am I watching 2 Fast 2 Furious? Because that shit ain’t even street legal!
The Scripps National Spelling Bee can’t even handle her right now.
In all seriousness, though, the fact that these kids don’t even know how to celebrate just makes the Bee that much better. It’s fun to watch a sporting event where the competitors are visibly nervous and things like ego and trash-talking are completely removed.
You can see how this year’s champion will celebrate on ESPN 3. The finals are on regular ESPN Thursday at 8 p.m.
