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? :)

4) Shortly after this picture was taken, Nick, the Nike Marketing Manager called Nike's Corporate Office to inquire about the manufacturing of squeegees... or at very least a supply of stickers so he could plaster the swoosh all over the ones in use. Nick even had an idea for a new tag line.... "Just Squeege It!" He was fired the next day.

The 5 most under appreciated jobs in sports.

1.  Badly dressed dude.  Dressing in awful orange shorts and looking so ridiculously bad that all the other fans feel good about what they wore to the game.  A tough job but someone has got to do it.

2.  Tennis ball hardness inspector.  Someone has to take a few off the old noggin to make sure the balls aren't too soft or too hard, and the fuzz consistency is just right.  A very impotant task in the world of tennis.  Careers in this field are lucrative but short.

3.  Designated prayer guy.  He (or she) prays when all is lost, your team needs a rally or turnover, or just in need of some sort of divine intervention like a massive monsoon in the bottom of the 4th down by 7 runs.  He also will pray that you reach the concession stand ahead of the guy standing next to him.

4.  Gator sweat collector.  Collecting the honest sweat off of alligators for the base ingredient in Gatorade is a thankless job.  Unfortunately being mauled by a gator is an occupational hazard.  Again careers can be short.

I'll finish this later.  Have to leave work for a home matter.

#2 In a split second she goes from Tennis Pro to the Matrix. She avoids the tennis ball with a quick body duck, then presses a button on her racket to reveal a sword. She then promptly goes over to the ball boy and beheads him in disgust. She then returns to her position and finishes up the match with and ace!!! WOW

1) Fans of Cricket star "Shakib" were intensely loyal - So much so that they would drink his urine based product "MAX IT" during games.

I'm a firm believer that 5 wins deserves something, and that something should be that I get a day where I get to pick the photos and declare the winners . If for no other reason, to give Joe a free day to mock me and the rest of us as much as he wants. I know he takes everything in good fun, but he probably would enjoy a day to lose the diplomacy hat and mix it up with everyone down here in the trenches. And here I thought I was mocking everyone just fine? Wink

I think we can work out a day where you do the pictures, though. Maybe we'll end a day early one month, and do the Kmvenne Open on the final day. Unless you have a better idea?

4) After hearing that Sergio thought the course was too hard, the crew started pulling water back on the greens at Agusta. Garcia was later seen using the ladies tees.
