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? :)

It makes me upset.....

1.  It makes me upset that Drew, as beautiful as she is, stoops to the level of her dates fashion wise.  And what's up with the hair?  Dead grass looks better than that mop.  Well, maybe not about 3AM and after a large quanity of alcohol.

2.  It makes me upset that movie stars always have access to players.  In this economy they're the only ones who can afford to pay for an autograph, and they get 'em for free.  Plus they get to ask questions.  We ask questions and we're idiots.

3.  It makes me upset that Uncle Sam is now some crummy German futbol coach urging fans to stand up and block the view of the people behind them.  Oh wait, it's German soccer.  Nothing is going on anyway.

4.  It makes me upset that it takes 3 PETA Espana people to rescue one little bee from a tennis court.  Wait, is that a can of Raid in their hands?  I might have found a new admiration for those folks.  Unfortunately, three people for one little bee looks very Euro wimpy.

5.  It makes me upset that this rather large lady hogged all the balloons at Chuck-E-Cheese.  Now there are thirty screaming kids wanting those headpieces, and the noise won't let me concentate on my Golden Tee putts.

#1.  The scary thing is they are both thinking the same thing. "One more beer and I am so getting lucky tonight"
#2.  David Wright just smiled and knodded as McConaughey tried to convince him to wear his hat backwards during the game, telling him "it makes you look way cooler Dude".
#3.  At least English Soccer Hooligans don't wear masts and give out candy. These guys are just weird.
#4.  Here's a tip. If you give it a good flick, it'll fly away or hit the ground where you can step on it. No silly hats needed.
#5.  Well, I used to have a thing for redheads. But I guess I'm cured now.

3) At the annual STD Festival.  Two unknown men protested with hate signs for STDs.  Made to look like huge used condoms, one sign read "ich will DITCH".  They were ran out of town half way through the festival when everyone there started throwing their undergarments at the pair.

2. Matthew: So, dude, you've heard what you can do with an apple or even a pineapple if, like, you hollow them out? Well, I've perfected how you can do that same thing ... but with a baseball bat. Here, lemme show you ...

David: What's with the bongos? Oh, and there goes the shirt ... OK, I'm done. Security!

3. Germans can craft a bad-ass beer stein and the beer that goes in it, but trophies? Not so much.

4. When controversy struck the tennis world for employing child labor to fetch errant tennis balls, the ATP decided to hire scientists. Although this quelled much of the opposition, tennis' TV ratings have plummeted, as matches now take 18 hours to complete.

5. The new face of erectile dysfunction.

Chinese Proverbs.

1) Man who fart in chair sit in own pew with Drew,

2) Baseball is wrong. Man with four balls cannot walk. (Let me explain it again Matt.)

3) War does not determine who is right, war determine who is left. (The Mask is to hide his face from the camera so he isnt picked out of the crowd for War Crimes in germany.)

4) Panties not best thing on earth! but next to best thing on earth. (how did this get here. We''ll have to scrape for DNA sample)

5) It take many nails to build crib, but one screw to fill it. (She better keep dreamin)
