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? :)

What if Kramer posted photo captions...

"These pretzels are making me thirsty"

"Right now there are six-hundred Titleists that I got at the driving range in the trunk of my car. Why don't we drive out to Rock-a-Way and hit them into the ocean?! Now picture this: We find a nice sweet spot between the dunes, we take out our drivers, we tee up and [makes a golf stroke], that ball goes sailing up into the sky holds there for a moment and then . . . gueeleep!"

"I am Cosmo Kramer...The Assman"

"I am telling you - I saw a half-man, half pig!!!"

"She needs a little Kramer."

  1. Being related to celebrites dosen't always guarantee success.  Here we see Kevin Costner's brother Blaine out on a date with Drew Barrymore's sister Patty.  Apparently, after six beers each, they think it's amusing to see themselves on the jumbotron.
  2. The Mets missed on a golden chance to sell thousands of tickets to crazed women who would have paid good money just to stare at these two.
  3. In German, this means I want you.  In English, this is so wrong on every count.   We don't feel the same way there Dieter.
  4. Somehow, the phrase having bees in the racquet doesn't translate well in Madrid.
  5. If I have to sit behind her at a sporting event, those balloons are toast.

1. Him: "Better tasting!'
     Her: "Less filling!"
     Him:  "We better be taling about the beer!"

2. "Yeah, you guys sank faster than my boat did in 'Fool's Gold"'!

3. "Does anyone know if Monica Seles is playing this week?"

4. 'You know, when we capture this bee and put it in the box, its just going to fly right out one of the air holes."

5. Missy was chosen as the keeper of the balloon sculpture as no one else was deemed capable of holding it agaisnt the wind."
