Patrick Cull, by Gosh


Patrick Cull made it through the early trials at the State Spell-off in Mt. Pleasant, watching others get tripped up on things he knew quite well, such as the pre-colonial capital of the Tanimbar Islands. Their bad guesses helped develop his self-confidence, and he thought he had it made–until they tripped him up by asking a question that was too easy: what state's Osh Kosh in? He knew it; everyone knows it; and yet somehow his answer came out, “Minnesota.” So he was asked to sit down. Of the 109 “regional winner” entrants, he finished 16th.

Just wait until next year!
