Eleven students will compete in the 93rd annual Scripps National Spelling Bee in Orlando, Florida, to take home the coveted Scripps Cup Thursday night. The competition has been a feat of orthographic endurance for decades, giving each student a chance at thousands of dollars in prize money.

Last year’s competition was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was the first time the spelling bee was canceled since 1945.

This year, each stage of the Spelling Bee was held remotely but the finalists will convene at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney Resort. The winner, one of more than 200 students who first entered the competition, will win $50,000.

First Lady Jill Biden will attend this year’s finals. Kevin Negandhi, a co-anchor on the 6 P.M. ET SportsCenter, will host the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Negandhi previously hosted the event in 2016 and 2017. Paul

The ‘gimmicky’ rules of MLB

2 Minute Drill: The ‘gimmicky’ rules of MLB



is sportscenter 52 minute drill? Remember that Sheryl Crow song called a change Will do you good. I think the folks that MLB have been listening to that on repeat every time you turn around, they’re changing another rule or proposing another rule change. Look, there’s a difference between evolving to up the entertainment value of the game and unraveling the fundamental fabric of it with gimmicks. MLB is close to crossing the latter threshold. I’m not a fan of seven inning doubleheaders. This isn’t little league MLB or starting extra innings with a man on second base. That’s a base too far.

USGA, R&A propose equipment standards changes that could include different rules for elite players

For the first time, golf’s governing bodies appear poised to allow for significant rules differences between elite players and other golfers as a way to combat the distance gains the sport has seen with the advancement of technology.

The United States Golf Association and the R&A jointly announced Tuesday that they are proposing equipment standards changes, including a potential local rule for club and ball specifications. They are also proposing changes to club length.

A year ago, the USGA and R&A released their “Distance Insights Project,” in which
