Displaced Phan’s #1 news source, Twitter, informed me that the Scripps National Spelling Bee is today.  Normally, I don’t really care and I have zero investment in this.  However, I took “a break” from work to see check out the Bee’s website.  I was scanning through the semi-finalist list and then I saw this…


Someone from Philly is in the Bee.  The actual real deal granddaddy of all spelling bees. THE BEE!  We’re desperate for a champion.  So, someone please sound the alarm because it’s most definitely BANDWAGON TIME!!

I hope she annihilates the competition and represents Philly to the fullest.  You can track her progress here.  LET’S GO LENA!!  DO IT FOR PHILLY!!  I’m not being the least bit Thalian here, I mean it.  If she loses, she can always throw batteries at the winner to make us all proud.  You can watch on the ESPN family of networks.  It’s on right now as we speak.

UPDATE:  Lena made it to the Finals!!  Only 9 kids are left.  The Finals start at 8:00 on ESPN.  SUPER BANDWAGON TIME!!
