Magical Moment 478, "Oxyphenbutazone"

I've mentioned before that my husband and I are big scrabble nerds. I've held the title of "The Ruler of Scrabble" for a few years now. My statistics for number of games won, highest word score, and highest game score have been mine for a while. But today my husband did something that...well, I don't know if we can call it amazing, or extremely nerdy. Probably a little of both.

While I was at work, he found himself bored with nothing to do. So he played a game of electronic scrabble. He went back and forth with himself as each player, and strategically set up the board in a way that would allow him to create the mother of all scrabble words. The word that if you're playing for real, the chances are about 1 in a million that you would be able to make this word legitimately. After several hours, he completed his task. Ah Eddie. Some write poetry. Some play music. And some want only to get a word score of 1,710 points:

I think you'd better find another game to play with Eddie. It looks like you've lost your championship title in Scrabble to him. Good work, Eddie.

I am LOL! My fiancé and I love Scrabble too. We play a lot during the rainy season here on the West Coast. You can tell him that word is fabulous.

Very, very cool! Coincidentally, I was cleaning out a cabinet a few days ago and spotted our Scrabble game on one of the shelves and I thought to myself that it would be fun to play an occasional game. So just as soon as I finish this comment I'm going back down to that cupboard to retrieve it. Thanks for the nudge!
