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? :)

 Michael Jordon Theme:

#1) Unlike how Jason did it, Derek is all juiced up by wearing the "customized" Air Jordan wristband

#2) The secret video footage of how Michael trained to improve his air time

#3) In a shrunken economy, some Chicago bulls fan are scaling back by bringing a goat to the game, instead of the bull that they have brought in the past.

#4) Today, #23 feels like a superman, and scored 3 goals in 3 minutes

#5) Wow, I can't believe that MJ is actually here in Germany watching our Handball game.


Sorry #5 is a stretch, but oh well...
