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? :)

#5)  Try as she might, the balloon sausages Cynthia placed on her head as a distraction could not stop everyone's eyes from immediately focusing on the ones under her chin.

1) I've always felt I had a lot in common with Ms. Barrymore. We're both usually drunk and our best work is well behind us. I'd tell her personally again if she'd just lose that restraining order...

2) After hearing the Mets have lost their shirts the last two Septembers, McConaughey starts making friends now so he can be around when it happens this year.

3) It's nice to see doing something this stupid is a crime in Germany, forcing people to wear crude masks to embarrass themselves and their teams in public.

4) "This is the last time we make make tennis nets out of bee honeycombs! At least without removing the bees!"

5) This lady looks the same here as she does at home. Just replace the balloon hat with a hat of cats...

Darn, and here I was expected a picture of Stephan Starbury to quip.  Oh well.
By the way, Joe, I think Drew's looking pretty trailor parky these days herself.

1) Between Julia Roberts and Drew, proof that shlubs like yours truly truly can dream.

2) Here, the Mets hope that Matty can bring them the stench of success.

3) My deutsche might be a little off, but "Ich Will Dich!"  Translation: Coach Cowher, please come to Germany and deliver us a "football" trophy.

4) These Spanish beekeepers are lost in translation of their French Tom-Tom Go and end up at Roland Garros (god I hope I spelled that close to correctly).

5) "It matches my shirt."

2)  David Wright of the Mets is thinking, "Dude you are a big star and make millions, the chicks dig you and yet you can not wear deodorant because you like you own smell" That is some funny.........Okay i can not fake the happy to meet you any more.

1. The three biggest clues that Drew has an alcohol problem: 1) The hair. 2. The necklace/frisbee. 3. Captain Trailer Park as an escort.

2. Seriously, you gave the guy a jersey to put on?! Like he really needs another excuse to take off his shirt.

3. It wasn't a perfect impersonation, but given her glaucoma, I think I found someone to cover my place at boggle night with grandma. Plus, the oversized sand timer and Werther's candy were a nice touch.

4. Those mesh helmets aren't exactly building my faith in the Spanish bomb squad.

5. Chubbles the Clown wasn't all that big on make-up, but damn could she work those balloon animals.
