Please teach me how to pick a really good watermelon.

So it's mid August and I have yet to find a truly good watermelon. They aren't as sweet as I'd like and some are downright mushy. I actually had to throw away an entire watermelon I got from the Park Slope Food Coop, it was that uninspiring. So please give me your best tips on choosing a good watermelon. It's funny, I always rap on it a few times, but don't know what I'm listening for. Thanks!
