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 - They were down by 3 runs, it was the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs and the batter just took a 4th ball to load the bases and Shamu was on deck. How was he going to grip the bat with those flippers and swing it around his large snout? And with his low center of gravity, the strike zone was going to pretty small. Maybe he'll get the pitcher to throw one inside and he'll take a bean ball for the team. But then how would he run the bases with no legs? Coach was having serious doubts about this decision.

1) Dr. Brown finally remembers again how to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of power necessary to time travel, and all the hippies celebrate a chance to go back to the 60's, just as soon as a Delorean is found.

1.) Robert Brownstein awoke nearly seven years to the day that a golf ball struck his head at the 2002 US Open, putting him into a deep coma. When his family told him the Open had returned to Bethpage, he wanted to do nothing but go directly to the tournament and put that fateful day behind him. As he watched Phil Mickelson bogey his way to another 2nd place finish, his spirits rose as he realized to himself, "nothing really has changed."

1)  Trying out the Malibu scene, Tommy Chong goes blond and attends a beach volleyball event.  Unfortunately, he forgot why he was there and kept shouting "HEY!!  Get out of my room, man...!!" before police finally escorted him home.

#5 - Much to the joy of the team, Shamu made an unannounced visit to the Texas dugout yesterday. He brought each member of the team one of those big sippy cups with his name and likeness on them, a Dr. Suess book all about whales, and a whistle that makes the same noises a whale makes underwater. He signed some autographs, posed for some pictures, and even took some swings in batting practice.  They asked him to stay for the game but he had to get back to his pool before his skin became too dry.
