Here's a post for all the grammarians that seem to haunt our blog. Winner of the National Spelling Bee Anurag Kashyap commented on his victory today saying "I was really nervous because I worked really hard on that and I wanted to do good," during a Good Morning America appearance today. Come on kid, you're one of the brightest students in our country and you make one of the most elementary grammar mistakes in the book. I'll admit that it's petty to beat up on an 8th grader, but I feel like someone who can correctly spell "sphygmomanometer" and "appoggiatura" should be able to follow basic grammar rules.
