How to Play:

It's simple, really. Look at the sports-related pictures above, and give us your funniest caption for any or all of them. You can write as many captions for each as you would like.

The contest runs daily, Monday-Thursday. Each day's contest will usually be posted by noon ET, and will usually end around 11 p.m. ET. If I decide that your caption is the funniest or most clever submitted for that picture, it will be declared a winner.

Winning captions will be announced when the contest ends. There will be one winner for each picture, and also one winner for the person who can string together the 5 best captions all with the same theme.

You will be awarded one point for each winning caption that you post. You will see a running tally on the scoreboard, which will be posted at the beginning and end of each day. At the end of each month a champion is declared, and we shower that user in praise and adulation! We add his screenname to the Wall-O-Fame, and then we start everyone's score back at 0.

This contest is just for fun, and there are no real prizes at this time. Who thinks they can make us laugh? :)

#1  "Ewww, nasty intangibles breath!"

Off the Post
2)  The Man-Hat is not expected to be popular in the US, but it looks spectacular on the runway.

BernieRotten
3) "I subscribe to Comcast for the Cubs games, but my goat friend and I enjoy a little late night Cinemax."

Mister Peabody
4.  After one too many blows to the head, Carlos runs around the field yelling "It's my birthday and I'm this many old!"

Tarheel_rockman
#5)  An Average Day In the Life of a Handball Pro:
Bernie: "CARL!  CARL!  Listen to me..!"
Carl: "BERNIE??  What in the hell are you doing out here?  Hey guys, this is my accountant Bernie Swartz..."
Bernie: "Listen to me me Carl!  This was the only way I could catch up with you to let you know the IRS is auditing you next Thursday and your wife has just filed for divorce and she took the cat and your test results came back positive and you're being traded to Spain and ..."
Carl: "WHAAAAAATTTTTTT!!!!!  SHE TOOK MR. JINGLES???"



kmvenne
Don't call it a comeback!

1) Brett Farve's secret move to baseball was going great until Jeter exposed his secret identity. How did that rugged gray stubble not ring a bell to us sports fans until now?

2) The rest of the guys from Michael Phelps' relay teams were desperate to emerge from the smoke screen (HA!) Phelps left behind, but nobody had the heart to tell them that the press didn't really cover the Gay Games.

3) Ryan Sandberg was desperate to relive his old Cubs glory, but many felt that taking the job of crazy cursed goat handler was demeaning to his legacy.

4) After losing two fingers during a horrible flopping accident in the champions leauge, "Three-Fingered Richard" cemented handicapped footballer of the year in the differently abled premier league when he kicked a penalty kick past veteran goalkeeper "One-legged Pete". (the Brits are very literal with their nicknames, it seems)

5) The Deustche Post logo makes a comeback to the photo caption contest, however in a way that is a million times less sexy then earlier this week.

Just another day at the job.....

  1. Jeter: Do you think our wives will notice us doing this.  Giambi:  I don't know, I think A-Rod is getting jealous though.  I saw how he used to look at you in the clubhouse.
  2. What is it exactly that Dad does for a living again Mom?
  3. Out of the way!  I'm a vet and this goat is sick.  She just saw Milton Bradley bat and she's dying.
  4. While Guenther beckoned to triple his meger salary after the tying goal, all eyes were on #11 whose hand is still in his pants in front of 75,000 people.
  5. What, I have to buy the drinks after the game.  Do you know what I get paid?

With David Paterson's pending legislation for gay marriage in NY state in the works, we see some impending hook-ups:

1)  Although everyone in Boston thought it was Jeter and A-Rod who had the hots for each other, there was a secret locker room romance between Giambi and Jeter.

2)  Local performing erotic artists can't get enough of each other after lathering each other up in bronzing solution.

3)  A man mistakes gay marriage for marrying "anything he can get his hands on".

4) This guy isn't really gay but none of the local churches would let him get married to Rosie Palm. 

5)  Leslie's teammates surprise him with the fact that they're throwing a shower for him and "bride-to-be" Robin after the game - and quite suitably in the shower.
