You can heckle him, but can you spell his name?

Samardzija, Pierzynski. Manumaleuna. Byfuglien.

In recent years, Chicago sports fans have had a ton of tongue-twisting names to tackle on local rosters. So you should feel pretty confident about entering the third-annual Sports Spelling Bee, taking place at ESPN Zone (43 E. Ohio) on Thursday, June 3 at 6:30 p.m. The free competition will include up to 50 particpants, who will be asked to spell the last names of local and national sports figures. The winner will get premium White Sox tickets, a VIP party at the ESPN Zone and, of course, a trophy. Think you've got what it takes? Email SportsSpellingBee@espnzone.com with your name, address, phone number, birth year and the location at which you want to participate. Then start studying your sports almanac.
