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? :)

Larry King & Monty Burns - separated at birth?

5) I don't like being outside Smithers, for one thing, there's too many fat children.

5) A lifetime of working with nuclear power has left me with a health green glow...and left me as impotent as a Nevada boxing commissioner.

5) Smithers. This place has a long and colorful history. it was built on an acient Indian burial ground, and was the setting of Satanic rituals, witch burnings and five John Denver Christmas specials.

Dutchboy, you beat me to the Larry idea. Nice.

And just for the record, I was writing my "Pie Throwing Contest" post when ATLBraves was writing his. Two geniuses if you ask me.

1) "OMG They should call your husband The Horse instead of The Shark."

2) "Driving golf balls off a nearby roof onto the baseball field:  now that's Progressive!"

3) "I'm mad as hell at those RedWing fans for throwing my relatives out on the ice."

4) "I'm just glad no one's throwing razor blades."

5) "I haven't thrown out the first pitch since that day at the Elysian Fields.  Did you know I interviewed Abner Doubleday?"

#1.  Everyone laughed after they pulled the old "here take MY microphone" gag. Shayna's embarrasment was hard to contain once she realized where the creepy old guy kept the fake one.
#2.  Seriously? A whole bucket? Tiger would only need 1 shot for this.
#4.  Facing revenew loss from the lack of sales for the Legend Seats, the Yankees we forced to switch to the old standby... The $1.00 Throw a Pie at your favorite player game.
#5.  "I know the bullpen's been bad but what makes you think I can throw a "cutter" without my suspenders"?

2)  Briny Baird shoots for his one moment in the sun... and he hits it!

3)  After years of abuse from Wings fans, the Octopus gang unleashes its secret weapon,  Monstro-pus.

4)  Twins' fans only reaction to four embarrasing losses in Yankee stadium?  A pie in the face.  Nice.

5)  Andy Petitte, looking much older since forced off the juice, pitched well enough Monday for the win.

1) Jenny shows just how excited she is that she will be in Shuless Joe's caption contest.....and that O'Casey will be writing that caption.

2) Redsox fans are trying new and inventive ways to "get rid of" Yankee players.

3) It's an octopus with a goatee....does it really need a funny caption?

4) Yankee fans showed their displeasure over high costs of refreshments by launching pies at Johnny fan gave this statement: "$9 for a "Damon Dessert"!?!?!?!'s just cool whip served on a Yankee paper plate!!!!!!!"

5) Larry King's alzheimers looked pretty evident when he ran back on the field in the 4th inning....."I already threw out the first pitch?" was all he kept mumbling as he was escorted off the field........and again in the 8th.......twice.

  1. Everyone had to laugh when the reference to female hygene products and A-Rod somehow got uttered in the same sentence.
  2. David Ledbetter shows the PGA's new attempt to "Tiger proof" their courses.  And how does that help the other pros?
  3. The Red wings new goalie was angry that league rules only allowed him to carry one stick.
  4. Man, couldn't it been a flavor other than Boston Cream.
  5. Larry King attempts to interview a baseball.  They hauled him away when he claimed it answered his questions.
