An event, usually occurring in Physical Education. Used to select teams for recreational sports in class. A captain is usually selected for each team, and they pick a player to join their team. The more popular or more athletic students are usually picked early, while the unfit and unpopular are usually picked last. Nobody EVER wants to be picked last, as it is seen as demeaning.

Jack: We play dodgeball in gym today.
Joe: Oh yeah?
Jack: And that's not all, we had a pick'em, and when it came down to either picking that dorky John kid or that fat Jim kid, Jim shit himself, and Johnny fainted!
Joe: Well, I sure hope I'm not picked last!
