Hello, dear SportsPickle readers. The College Humor family has welcomed a new site: Dorkly.com.
It's a video game humor site that will update five days a weekwith the funniest video game pictures, articles, videos, and links.
A few examples:
The 15 Most Annoying Levels in Video Game History <- THIS ONE EVEN INCLUDES SPORTS REFERENCES!!!!!!!!!!
If something is published on SportsPickle, it is therefore the greatest thing ever. But some things are even more of the greatest thing ever. Here is what those were in April, based on traffic numbers.

Here's an original idea an NCAA Tournament pool!
You can join the SportsPickle pool at ESPN.com by following this link.
Here are the rules:
1. The "winning" bracket will have the most number of incorrect picks. Got that?
2. The "best" bracket will be the worst bracket. Understand?
3. And again because somehow people mess this up every year (you morons!): This pool is the complete opposite from every other tournament pool because to win, you need to mess up the most. Yes? Okay, moving along
4. The winner (which, again, will be the worst bracket in the group) receives wait for it wait for it
5. two (2) tickets to an NBA game!!!!!!!!
6. A Nets game. (Technically, still an NBA game.)
7. Retail price: $4. (Really. On StubHub, Nets tickets go for $2/each. Not a joke.)
8. You have to actually fill out your bracket to be eligible to win. As the Nets actually have to show up to take their losses.
9. The tiebreaker is the winning score. Fill that out as what you think will be the score of the most lopsided opening round game.
So go. Join. And if you are the best at being terrible, you could earn yourself two Nets tickets. How fitting.

Hello there, dear reader.
Starting Wednesday, March 3rd one week from today a new Q-and-A column will run each Wednesday here on SportsPickle.
The Q's will be supplied by you. And the A's? By DJ Gallo, the founder and editor of this fine corner of the Internet (and noted A's).
As this is a sports site, your questions should be of a sporting nature. But perhaps a few off-topic questions can be obliged, as well. Cool? Cool.
Now how do you submit your questions for this Q-and-A column, the first such column ever run on the Internet? IT'S EASY!
Option #1 Tweet your question to @sportspickle using the hashtag #SPQNA
Option #2 Submit your question on Facebook (http://www.Facebook.com/SportsPickle) under the Q-n-A Questions thread that will be posted each week.
Go now. Ask away. The answers to sport's great questions are just days away.
Want to win this on a t-shirt? Want to win this on a t-shirt and show that you are super hilarious?
You're in luck! SportsPickle is partnering with BustedTees for a t-shirt contest/giveaway. Here's how it works:
Send in a funny t-shirt slogan/idea (sports-related or otherwise) to SportsPickle on Twitter at @sportspickle with the hashtag "#BustedTees".
If your idea is among the best three, you will receive this t-shirt for free.
If your idea is deemed good enough to be made into a BustedTees shirt, you'll get two of your t-shirt plus $150.
All submissions must be in to @sportspickle by Thursday, February 4, 2010 at Noon ET.
Oh and if you think you aren't funny and still want the "nobody cares" shirt, you can always just buy it here.
Let the contest BEGIN!
(Note: Girl obviously and unfortunately not included with t-shirt.)
There's not a single item on SportsPickle that is not the greatest thing ever. But some things are the greatestest ever. Here is what those were in January, based on traffic numbers.
Going to a game? Need a sign to taunt the opposition? Can't think up anything good to write?
You're in luck!
Just e-mail SportsPickle, provide the name of your target, and you might just get back a list of sign-appropriate messages.
That's what this PITT fan did before the Panthers game against Louisville on Saturday and thanks completely to the message SportsPickle provided (and this fan's award-winning penmanship) PITT overcame a 5-point deficit with only 34 seconds remaining to win!
Try it out!
And if you take a picture of your sign at the game, it'll run on the site.
What do you have to lose? (Other than your sign and your tickets?)
Everything that appears on SportsPickle is the greatest thing ever conceived. But here is what was the greatest of the greatest things ever conceived in December based on traffic numbers.
