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? :)

3) "Dan, my tricycle isn't invisible, and you are not riding it.  Now seriously, where did you put it?"

4) "No... no, I don't think you look fa-- Hun, come on you know I--  What, no?  I wasn't checking out the cheerleaders!  That was some other guy on the Cowboys with the #9 jersey, I swear it!"

Train Derailer
1)  As a child, Sonny's parents gave him two choices:  Football camp or braces.  The rest is history.

kmvenne
2) A rare photo of the 2 worst quarterbacks ever to win a superbowl side by side.

Prank Caller: Romo says what?
Romo: What?

5.  Despite his efforts to show he can adapt to the credits of the show, Fran Tarkenton was rejected as a member of the Brady Bunch.

Why defensive linemen hate quarterbacks....

1.  They think they're larger than life and so important that their names are always spelled in all capital letters.

2.  Quarterbacks are so vain, they think the world survival is dependent on cloning themselves.

3.  They get to have on field conversations about whether Cameron Diaz is more fun to work with than Courtney Cox.  D-linemen get to discuss the differences between Subway and Quiznos.

4.  Pretty boy quarterbacks get to use the sideline phone to talk to their famous girlfriends, or break up with them.  When Defensive guys break up with their gals, usually the police, attorneys, and restraining orders are involved.

5.  Right.  Two freakin' yard loss.  Fran ran you around so long on a two yard loss, you were unable to get a pass rush on the 60 yd. bomb the next play.  Running Qb's who can pass should be illegal, unless they play on your team.
