I discovered that the Bee has a webpage at http://www.spellingbee.com, and they even have a results page at http://www.spellingbee.com/05bee/resultsindex.shtml. At this very moment, Round 7 is in progress, and if you go to http://www.spellingbee.com/05bee/rounds/Round07.htm, you can watch the page update with the results as each kid either gets the spelling right and moves onto the next round...or is eliminated.
My one and only Spelling Bee experience was in 5th grade, at PS 101, my elementary school. I was one of four kids remaining on the stage, and I got the word "scholarly." I asked for a sentence, which was "The boy carried his schoolbooks with a scholarly look on his face." I heard that as "scowlerly," so I asked for a definition. When I got it, I knew the word, and proudly began spelling.
"C," I said, skipping over the "S" purely by accident.
I stopped. I knew I was eliminated, but I didn't want to go out like that. So I started over. "S-C-H-O-L-A-R-L-Y," I said. And then the bell rang and I went off the stage.
Next year, I chose not to participate in the Spelling Bee. Far too much pressure for me.
