You may have noticed that a few changes have been made around here.
First off, SportsPickle is now daily during the work week (M-F) and will routinely be updated throughout the day. So come back every day, several times a day.
Now to the other changes.

Now for a few questions you might ask
What happened to Ponder This? Nothing. Ponder This isn't it's own thing anymore. But everything you saw in Ponder This will now be found as separate posts in the main column of the page.
What about commenting? It's coming.
So what's left?
Well, this is just the re-launch of SportsPickle. There may be a few bugs at the outset. And plenty of new stuff is on the way that I am really excited about.
Finally, thanks to the great team at College Humor and Connected Ventures for the outstanding job on the new SportsPickle. And thank you to Adam Reisinger for all his years of work on the site as the (now former) webmaster.
And thanks to all of you for your continued support of the site. If you have any additional questions about the new SportsPickle, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can ask them to @sportspickle on Twitter. If there are recurring ones, I'll post them here.
