But today there is actual relevant Erin Andrews news involving the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Via Deadspin and The Futon Critic comes the news that Andrews will be joining ESPN and ABC’s coverage of the bee as a correspondent. Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron is also added as a host. Out are last year’s hosts Mike & Mike and reporter Stu Scott — we will miss ripping on them.
This is the perfect opportunity to announce that Johnnysweeptheleg and I will again be live blogging the spelling bee finals in prime-time on May 30. I think last year’s bee live blog was a huge success, despite it being basically two dudes instant-messaging each other and making fun of nerdy 12-year-olds on a blog.
Everyone is welcome to join in the fun and post comments. It’s going to be so much better this year: It’s going to be two dudes drinking beer, gawking at Erin Andrews, instant-messaging each other, and making fun of nerdy 12-year-olds on a blog on a Friday night.
It doesn’t get any better than that. High fives all around.
