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? :)

1) The shorts are long on the right because I hang to the right, gentlemen.  If I see a good hit, you simply don't need to see the full Monty.
2) Hey man, that hollowed out top aint' nuttin compared to what I got.
3) brunette on right not quite understanding why she is relieved after OJ tells the others they remind him of his wife
4) voice in head tells Magic this will be his lifelong rival, to which Magic replies "this white boy, this hick from French Lick??"
5) Love like hair is wasted on the young.

4) A little known fact about the Bird/Magic rivalry: Halfway through their first game against one another, a confused Magic was overheard asking, "what's Ponch like in real life?

2) This picture shows well what we've all long suspected. Here we see Barry before he began producing inflated numbers which, we now know, was due in large part to his performance enhancing golden necklaces.

Picture 4:  You're kidding me Larry, you really play basketball?  I thought you were the mascot.  I still don't believe you.  It's cool that you have the authenic jersey and shorts, but the Glee Club section is that way.  Now if you would kindly give me the ball, the men would like to get this game started.

Pat Arnold: I may turn my attention to the .

Bob Swerski: Well, at least the outcome of that is in question. Who do you gentlemen like in a race? Now the favorites are Rick Mears, A.J. Foyt, and Gary Bettenhousen.

Pat Arnold: I like Mears.

Carl Wollarski: Mears.

Todd O'Conner: MEARS!

Superfans: Rick Mears!

Bob Swerski: Now what if Da Bears were to enter the Indianapolis 500? Uhhh, what would you predict would be the outcome, huh?

Todd O'Conner: How would they compete?

Bob Swerski: Well, let's say they rode together in a big bus.

Carl Wollarski: Is Ditka driving?

Bob Swerski: Of course.

Carl Wollarski: Then I like Da Bears!

Bob Swerski: Sure.

Todd O'Conner: Yeah, I gotta go with Da Bear Bus!

Superfans: Da Bear Bus!

Carl Wollarski: Bus full of Bears!

Pat Arnold: See, I don't know, you know, I may still have to go with Mears, you know? But you guys figure it out.

2.  Barry Bonds.  Bobby Bonilla.  1991.  Taken before they looked like Steeler linebackers.

3.  Could it be...SATAN!

4.  Sorry guys, if I wore shorts like that today, I'd have to kick my own @$$.

5.  Andre would find out later in life that girls also dig guys with no hair too.  D2Moo somehow is still waiting for that to come true.

Once again, just as I started my thread, I had to take care care of an emergency with my parents. 

Trying again.

What if someday....

1.  Someday, I'll win a Super Bowl with this team, then have a few more good years.  I'll then go coach and GM the Saints and trade my whole draft for a ganja smoking running back from Texas.  After I get fired TV will be waiting and I'll get to do commericals for a drug that improves the sex life of millions.  Nah, never happen.

2.  Barry:  You know someday Bobby, I'll get to sign a big contract with my dad's old team in San Francisco.  Then, through hard work, training and some suppliments provided to me by a nice owner of a sports lab I'll become stronger than King Kong and mash my way to the single season homer record and finally Hank Aaron's record will be mine.  But no one will like me and I'll get accused of cheating and my career will die a quiet and wimpy death.  Nah, never happen.

Bobby:  Whatever dude, did you say something.

3.  Someday, I'll marry some woman just as pretty as your three.  She'll be the love and light of my live until she gets stabbed to death along with another guy.  I'll be so distraght the police will follow my Bronco down the freeway as I try to escape the thought of her death.  Then there will be a long and expensive trial where I will prove that any man, reguardless of race or color can buy justice as long as theyhave enough jack and better lawyers than the prosecutors.  Then I'll spend the rest of my life looking for her killer on golf courses across this land, and trying to pay off a lawsuit by some guy who was victim of the crime I was aquitted of.  Then, I'll finally go to jail because I tried to get back memorabilia from some dealer in Vegas and was framed for the crime of stealing my own stuff.  Nah, never happen.  Hey ladies, lets go jump over my rental car.

4.  Magic:  Looking into the magic basketball, I see out careers entwined together in the NBA.  Your uniform green and white, mine yellow and purple.  We'll revive a whole league and be the sports greatest players until some kid with the initials MJ comes along.  We win a bunch of championships, but I'll get sick from some killer disease that won't spread around for a couple of more years.  Oh, you get this bug from having unprotected sex with other humans.  But I'll live and we both will be hoops legends.  Nah, never happen.  Say Larry, I believe that ball is mine.

5.  Let's see here, the racket of fortune says I'll have a long tennis career.  I'l win a lot of Grand Slam events, get to do camera commercials, marry Steffi Graf, become a beloved tennis icon, and be everything I wanted to be in tennis.  Man, I don't know about shaving the locks though.  Can't see that happening.  I'll wear all white on the court before that happens.

1. "Yes, wer're going to win it, and no, I don't think they're short enough."

2. "I'm telling you Barry, you gotta be careful of who you tell this to." "No man I'm serious, you can never use enough pine tar."

3. "OK so lets take a poll girls. Which is worse: murder or robbery? Really, murder? OK well which should I confess to and which one should a write a book about NOT doing?"

4. "Hey what did you put on that ball man. It stinks." "It's actually an anti-aging cream, which will allow me to look the exact same for the next 20 years."

5. "...and Joe Dirt finally makes his return to professional tennis after months of perfecting his Happy Trail."
