SAMIR PATEL WATCH: Deadspin is reporting that ESPN talkers Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg will anchor ABC's primetime coverage of the Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee. (Why not Wilbon & Kornheiser, if you're going that route?)
I can happily report that for the third straight year, Grey's Anatomy (and now Private Practice) creator Shonda Rhimes will be guest-blogging here as part of our two-day live coverage in two weeks.
For wagering purposes, Beloved Samir is the sole five-timer, with three four-timers and eleven competitors returning for the third time, including ALOTT5MA faves Evan O'Dorney and Jonathan Horton. More on them soon.
