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) Even though the ladies loved it, Andre eventually made the decision not to go shirtless any more due to the time consuming task of picking the chest hairs out of his racket strings.

4) They didn't call him "Magic" for nothing - here we see one of his favorite tricks he'd pull on Larry Bird back in college, where he turns into a cardboard cut-out of himself.

2. Baseball purists believe Barry bonds sold his *soul* to the Devil. Unfortunately for Bobby Bonilla, he took it a step further and sold his soul to the New York Mets.

2. There's now speculation that Barry Bonds may have been taking steroids long before his major league career began, as evident in this 1972 photo of an 8-year old Bonds with his Uncle Bobby at the Riverside California Little League Uncle-Nephew game.

1) How tough was Ditka? He invented the first hands free communcations device, when he took a walkie talkie and bolted a metal casing to  his own skull to drop it in, seen here.

2) Barry would laugh it off, but deep down, he vowed to do something about the taunts of "Small head! Small head! Small head!" one day.

3) "Come on ladies, lets get out of here. My friend A.C. has room for all three of you guys in his white Ford Bronco!"

4) "Trust me Magic, I'm keeping this ball away from you for your own good. This idea you have about putting on a "Magic Hour", sooner or later, it's gonna be the most embarassing thing you ever do. Or at least, top 2...

5) Andre Aggasi was the first person ever to demand a reciept after his French Open victory, so he could prove to Sampras that he won there any time Pete got a bit uppity about all his majors.
