I've got to admit it: there's something I just enjoy about the spelling bee. Maybe it is because when I think about it, the songs from that musical pop into my mind, or maybe it is because I'm happy to see kids on TV showing off their brains while not having to answer some of the easy questions on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader. I think it might be the fact that it is so simple. Kids step up to a mic, spell big words and then go back to folding chairs. There's no flashing lights or big stages or Who Wants to be a Millionaire music of doom.
