Before the MLB season, Domino's Pizza announced they would be bringing back their popular DominNoNo's campaign, which offered free pizzas to the first 20,000 people who logged in to following the season's first two no-hitters.

As you likely know, the Dodgers' Josh Beckett threw the season's first on Sunday, but the promotion's website could not handle the ensuing flood of traffic, and many fans felt they were left without the pizza Beckett had worked so hard to earn for them.

As much as we all love free pizza, maybe it is time to stop being surprised that websites go down when millions of people all go to them at the same time.
