Usually spelling bees aren’t known for excitement. Don’t get me wrong, I love spelling and grammar as much as the next guy, but spelling bees usually lack the emotion and fun of, say, the NBA or NHL playoffs.

That’s right, a tie. In the end, Sriram Hathwar of Painted Post, N.Y., and Ansun Sujoe of Fort Worth, Texas each won the 2014 title.
It was the first tie since 1962.
