Serrefina was the winning word in the 80th Scripts National Spelling Bee. I love to watch this each year and love the prime time showing of the finals – great way to award academics and the combo of ABC/ESPN gives it a true competition feel. How funny to see Mike and Mike as commentators.
The winner was 11 year-old Evan O’Dorney and he was hilarious in that he finds the spelling bee “just a bunch of memorization” and he doesn’t like the spelling bee as much as math and music. Bright and funny, what a combination.
