Dogs or Bees

Which is your favorite non-sport sporting event, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show or the National Spelling Bee?

Given that the Spelling Bee takes place in early June at the peak of the baseball season, I have to give the nod to the Dogs. The hounds have the common sense (or good fortune?) to stage their event in early February, between the Super Bowl and Spring Training. They also spread their event over two days in order to build the drama, and I just think it outshines the Spelling Bee.

Which event do you prefer? What non-sport event did I overlook?


  1. Is the NBA regular season considered a non-sport sporting event yet?
    If so, Im still going with the hounds. At least they are trying harder.
    Fewer criminal proceedings as well.

  2. Homer: Or what? You'll release the dogs, or the bees, or the dogs with bees in their mouths, and when they bark, they shoot bees at you? Well, go ahead. Do your worst.
    Burns: "Do my worst", eh? Smithers, release the robotic Richard Simmons.
