Could You Use That In A Sentence?

I was reading today that some lucky little kid won the National Spelling Bee.  The winning word was "Laodicean" which means lukewarm or indifferent in religion or politics.  So some special little girl won $50,000 and will go down in history for spending the formative years of her life reading the dictionary instead of playing with Barbies or prank calling boys using three-way calling.  (Wait, do girls still do this or am I dating myself with this example?)

But it got me to thinking that I miss competition.  Sure, I go to Pub Trivia once a week but considering I spend most of my time in the office I would like to see a little more good, healthy co-worker vs. co-worker rivalry.  And I don't mean stealing sales leads or manipulating the data to make someone look bad.  

It wouldn't even have to be physical challenges; though a nice couple days of Double Dare like sliming might be fun...

Funny P.S. to this...

When I ran the spell check on this post, the only word that came up as misspelled was the wining word from the National Spelling Bee.  I cry foul on this who situation...
