We're talkin' Scrabble (no Kluszewski, no Campanella)

Yours truly is the “Listener of the Week” on the Baseball Prospectus “Up and In” podcast.  I get to talk about the world of competitive tournament Scrabble.

If you don’t feel like listening to the entire podcast (Itunes link), just forward to the 1:09:36 mark.

I've actually been meaning to complement you on this Diane. Up and In is one of my favorite podcasts, and I really liked your segment

Thanks Matt .... I was hoping to focus more on the differences in tourney Scrabble vs. kitchen table Scrabble, but KG seemed more interested in the "oddballs". :-)

Very cool. Not too surprising that they were more interested in the personalities than the technical stuff, I guess.
