Each May, the Scripps National Spelling Bee lines up shoulder-to-shoulder with the NBA and Major League Baseball on ESPN. For this special week, the world of sports throws a burly arm around the spelling bee and marvels at our young spellers’ performance under pressure. Today on the Scripps National Spelling Bee podcast, we’re returning the favor by speaking with one of the most loquacious lovers of language in the world of sports: soccer commentator Ray Hudson. A former professional player and coach, Hudson knows the beautiful game inside and out. But what really sets him apart is his seemingly unending supply of quick quips and colorful metaphors. Through his passion for the spoken word, Ray Hudson still gets to live in the game of soccer.
