Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, May 30, 2014

For the first time in 52 years, the Scripps National Spelling Bee crowned two winners Thursday night, after the final two competitors exhausted the word list. The winners were Sriram Hathwar, an eighth-grader from Painted Post, New York, and Ansun Sujoe, a seventh-grader from Fort Worth, Texas. "I like sharing the victory with someone else," Ansun said. "It's been quite shocking and quite interesting, too. It's very rare."

Good story, Andre. It's a geeky thing, but I like spelling bees. Maybe part of it was that I was 6th grade champ in my county. (yes, reliving glory days. That was my pathetic 15 minutes of fame, which was a out the time Andy Warhol made famous the concept. LOL)

Do they have spelling bees in Germany? That would be tough.

Wait first time for co-champions? You mean Akeelah and the Bee was fiction? My life is a lie. Hollywood I trusted you and yet again you betray me!

Oh well congrats Hathwar and Sujoe and plus side that will make a killer name for a law firm in a few years.

I have a hard time accepting that they call it merely a "tie".

There should be a long, obscure, hard-to-spell word for a tie in a spelling bee.
