Canadians are known for their sportsmanship and it was on full display last night in a Scrabble duel between two Toronto teens and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.
Every year, Kimmel challenges the winners of the National School Scrabble Championship to a match on his TV show. This year, the winners were Scarborough Grade 8 students Alex Li and Jackson Smylie.
Kimmel lost last year's duel, so the Canadians entered the game by telling the late-night host he shouldn't be "overly confident."
The comedian soon got his payback in a series of questions about how a couple of Canadians managed to get into an American National Championship.
The Canadian teens let their game speak for itself, throwing down "pointer" for 90 points. You can see the first half of the match below:
Kimmel responded quickly with a seven-letter word of his own: "phasing" for 84 points. Living up to the Canadian reputation for politeness, Smylie noticed an error and corrected Kimmel's score to 92.
