Absolutely Adequate wrote:Has anyone read "Word Freak" by Stean Fatsis? It's about the world of competitive scrabble, and it's weird. The guys that play the game are just nuts - they study bizzare words 12-14 hours a day in the hopes of being the best. If they are the best in the world, they might average around 50-60 grand a year.

Flip through it next time you're at the bookstore. It's hilarious.


My new life ambition! Wish me luck! :-b

ESPN actually airs the Magic the Gathering tournaments. Scrabble doesn't surprise me. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Spelling Bees (though the kid passing out cracked me up), Poker and now Scrabble. ESPN has hit a new low. Don't get me wrong, I like board games.....sometimes. What's next jigsaw puzzles, Monopoly, or 2 of my favorites, Stratego and Risk.

Suddenly the Strong Men and Billiards don't seem so bad

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
