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? :)

Glad to see good Dr. Seuss still going strong. Unfortunately, not too many people get it or like it.   My ratings dropped 20 points since I posted that poem.

It's good to know a suggestion I made in late December is still in the works. This reminds me of the time I told Steve Jobs to make a cell phone back in '99 Actually... I had this thing in the works since before the writer's badge was created. The idea is a "trophy case" with all kinds of specific, earnable badges. It's been well over a year since its proposal. The problem is, it was part of a much bigger project... one that people have be revising and balking on all the way. Finally, recently, we just said "screw it" and pulled it out as an independent project.

But, yeah, things can be very, very slow around here... especially with so many more vital things to work on. I'm still getting used to this "pace" myself. Patience is definitely a virtue.

But it is coming... I hear. :)

Doggone it, missed all the fun today.  Didn't get to even get on a computer today until Midnight Central time.  Moving elderly parents is no fun whatsoever.  Had to take the Mrs. to the doctor as well.  Love those 4PM appts. that turn into 5:45 ones.  Well, okay, not actually.  Tried to get on the computer in the exam room.  Save that story for some future pics.  Loved all the great posts today.  Glad to see good Dr. Seuss still going strong.  Catch you all on Monday.

1. In an effort to reach out to their growing 18-35 gay male demographic, ESPN steals a page from early '90's sketch comedy and debuts it's new talk show "Men on Sports" - with hosts Blaine Edwards and Antoine Merriweather. In the first installment, they discuss Stan Van Gundy's facial hair... "HATED IT!"

2) "I know it would conflict with opening night, but you've got to go that pumpkin patch one time. It would mean the world to Linus."

3.(trainer) That's it you got it keep it up. Strainghten up your back a little there ya go. Get those elbows pumpin a bit more. (Announcer) Do you wish you could move like a white dude on the dance floor. Well you can learn the awkward movements of a white dude with the dance like a white dude trainer. You'll be twisting, heaving and leg kickin in no time with the  dance like a white dude trainer. In stores now.

4) What's that in that case on Kobe's belt? Is he carrying mace? Then again, I guess if anyone knows the dangers of sexual assults...

#5)  Kobe's antics on court reached a new low in the last playoff game when he repeatedly taunted the Magic's Waterboy by imitating the movie's fat, unintelligible Cajun guy.

2) This giant trophy is to remind Joe that it would be cool if we played for something, even if it's just a profile badge! Supposedly, this one is in the works. Wink
