We currently have 237 contestants in the SportsPickle 2009 tournament pool on ESPN.com. Many of you have come up with fantastic names for your bracket. But I have to give special commendation to the owner of the bracket called Hobolingus.

Well done.

A few quick reminders of the pool rules: 

1. The worst bracket wins

2. You have to actually fill out your bracket to win.

And here’s a new rule: 

3. You can only have one bracket. 

It’s not fair to everyone else if you have multiple brackets going. We all are putting our worst foot forward here. Foot, singular. If you fail, you may not try, try to fail again.

Granted, I added this rule late in the game. So if the winner/loser of the pool is someone who submitted multiple brackets, he or she can choose to forfeit the winnings to the next eligible contestant … OR … they can accept the generous gift bag (Blue Jays season ticket, signed copy of my book, Joey McLauglin card) BUT must also agree to dole out some hobolingus at the rail yard of my choosing.

Deal? Deal.

Now all together now … Here we go, terrible teams (clap-clap-clapclapclap)!

    If you don’t receive a call from a porno producer by the end of the day wanting to make a movie called “Hobolingus: Riding Rails,” I will be very surprised.
