Veteran spelling bee reporter Erin Andrews tells TMZ, stringing letters together is no easy business -- in fact, it's so nerve-wracking, some young contestants break a sweat ... and even lose consciousness.

But is it an actual sport?

Definitely not a sport. But that does not take away one bit from the difficulty and the talent involved. Those kids work their butts off studying to compete. It is not a sport but it is a competition and there is no reason at all to try to make it out to be a sport when there is nothing wrong at all with what it really is. There is no shame in using your brain and kids should learn that lesson early.

Why would I value her opinion? She has a job at ESPN cause she's a piece of a$$ to look at while watching games.

Look at her mug! This is the gal that all of the geek sports radio personalities rave about. They talk as if she is a 10+ in the looks department. But of course, this is coming from booger eating, nerds who married the first homely woman that they slept with.

She is not ugly, but come on, feature wise, she is no Princess Grace(Kelly)or Brook Shields. I guess when you line her up against the hags and overtly repulsive hags working for ESPN, relatively,she looks like beauty. As far as beauty goes, she has the same "horse face", beauty features as Julia Roberts and like Julia Roberts, she owes her reputation as a beauty to nothing but the celebrity hype machine.

Today in Hollywood and the entertainment industry, a truly beautiful woman is hard to find; that is, except for the Latin television stations. Erin Andrews is just so-so looking, but not a raving beauty. With the right make up and wardrobe she can be attractive, but does not deserve all of the hype as a "knockout" with drop dead gorgeous looks.

So I guess when you stack her up against her below mediocre looking female co-workers at ESPN, she looks extraordinary. But on the other hand, when you line her up against the Sports Illustrated bathing suit models, she is about as attractive as female cop.

So, if Erin Andrews is standing next to slut-fugly Cameron Diaz, Erin Andrews is striking, but if E.A. is standing next to Heather Graham, she is about as attractive as a WNBA point guard.

Tsk Tsk Charles how can you say there is no strategy involved in competitive spelling? Haven't you seen Akeelah and the Bee? (insert racist joke here) Let them treat it like a sport, there is plenty of competition in it along with mind bending strategy or intense memorization.

tsk tsk Charles, how can you say there is no strategy involved in spelling competitively. haven't you seen that move Akeelah and the Bee? (insert racist joke here) since poker is considered a sport i say let the kids treat spelling like a sport. It can require a chess-like strategy at the highest levels.
