Sports website gets to the bottom, or punchline, of things

Posted on September 6, 2006

If you are any sort of sports fan whatsoever, you have probably read numerous articles on sites like,, etc. You may notice that the links I just provided are not clickable because assuming you are a sports fan, you already have them bookmarked. If you are not a sports fan, you should probably stop reading this, because the website I'm about to list will be incomprehensible to you.

The site is called It's titled "the sports humor and satire site." In a day where sports columnists can be funny more often than not, SportsPickle takes it to the next step and just makes stuff up. It's similar to The Onion, yet it focuses primarily on sports.

SportsPickle is published every Wednesday, so this gives me the opportunity to give you fresh headlines:

  • NFL Players Ready to Begin Providing Stats for Fantasy Leagues
  • Brady Quinn takes early lead in Heisman race by being Brady Quinn
  • Ryan Howard Angers Phillies Fan by Not Hitting Any Home Runs to His Section
  • Nick Saban steers hurricane away from Miami with nothing but the strength of his will

It's pretty funny stuff, and you won't have to deal with that crazy thing known as the truth, at least for a couple of minutes.
