Ah, yes. A good ol' psephite.

Wait. You want me to spell that? You want me to spell it, correctly?

That was the challenge laid out for 2 Works for You Sports Director Big Al Jerkens, reporters Brian Miller, Darcy Jackson and Corley Peel. How did they do? Not well. But don't take our word for it, check out the short video above.

Psephite is one of the many word options participants may be tasked with spelling correctly in the Scripps Green Country Regional Spelling Bee March 4. More than 50 Tulsa-area students will compete for the chance at a spot in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. in May.

As for psephite, it's a coarse fragmental rock composed of rounded pebbles. It's pronounced see-fight.
