In addition to being inspired by a certain 38-across, I think celebrating words and those who know them really, really well is always worth some time. I hope this puzzle gets you into the mood for a couple minutes — hopefully without too much frustration on the side!
Also, this title makes me think of another spelling-bee related crossword venture, "Cross-Pollination," by a certain mischievous duo. I really enjoyed solving it a couple weeks ago and you probably will too!
