So we got together quote “The three worst spellers” (Jeremy, Steve, and the intern Rory) that Jeff has met to face off in an eighth grade level spelling bee. Once more, each speller represented a KZOZ listener that wanted to win free tickets to Sammy Hagar. The first three people who called in got to pick their representative, and Rory the intern was chosen last. Whoever won the contest would win tickets to see Sammy at the County fair for the person they represented. Jeff used a random word generator (the link is posted below) to pick words for the contestants to attempt to spell correctly. The event started off with a very quick elimination with Steve misspelling “rutabaga”. It then went to Jeremy who mistakenly spelled “supplement” with an “i”. Rory took the steal and then again lost his advantage. The stupidity lasted a little longer with both Jeremy and Rory not able to spell a word correctly. In the end, Rory stole the word “photosynthesis” from Jeremy and then won the contest completely with the word “fallacy”. That’s our college system at work right there. Steve, the person Rory was representing, (not the other contestant) was then graced with free tickets to see Sammy Hagar.

It’s 6:30 in the cold morning. Most people are asleep or maybe getting ready for a hard day of work. However, there is a certain type of person out ther; A person filled with spirit; A person that supports the country of America; A person who bleed our colors of red white and blue, waking up at the brink of dawn ready to get drunk and watch the world’s biggest single sporting event, THE WORLD CUP! Now America is not known for being the best team around, and let’s face it, most of our country doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the game. However, of course there are those die hard fans ready to go down to the bars right when they open to support our country and team. But then again, is the World Cup just another excuse for Americans to forget all their problems of everyday life and get wasted at 6 in the morning with their buddies? Then again, is that a problem? So we sent our intern to the local bar McCarthy’s to check out the scene, and ran a little social experiment to see why people really go out to the bars that early, and made it a game to win Sammy Hagar tickets. The idea was to see if the person cussed, mentioned drinks or drinking, or the USA team first.

Will the die hard soccer fan mention drinking, cussing, or the most important reason for being at the bar at 6am in the fisrt place, USA SOCCER!?
