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? :)

I don't care who wins this but this is technically bullsh*t!!    Riverrock came up with the Spiderman theme at 12:59 pm
To be totally honest, I never even saw Riverrock's post yesterday. Sorry Bee, I didn't know you were on salary to do this.

Great minds think alike, and often times, people are able to put funnier spins on things (especially if I originated it). That's the line right there... I did see both posts, and while originality and creativity definitely count, the funniest caption can still be a play off of someone else's idea. A lot of the time, there are only a couple themes per picture. (See: Daly, John.) And even though I do read all the posts, I can't really expect everyone who plays to do the same. It takes a long-ass time, man!

I guess my point is this... If you want to OWN a theme, you better knock it out of the park on the first shot.

I don't care who wins this but this is technically bullsh*t!!    Riverrock came up with the Spiderman theme at 12:59 pmCome on, Bee.  We're all friends here.  Personally, I consider it a compliment when somebody puts their own spin on my things.  80% of the time, their not even aware of it anyway.  Sometimes you miss things going through the roughly 100 posts Joe gets, and sometimes, you just happen to be working on the same thought at the same time, like me and Howie a couple days ago.  Shoot, at one point a couple months ago, people were starting to think riverrat and I were the same person we were doing it to each other so often.  Great minds think alike, and often times, people are able to put funnier spins on things (especially if I originated it).  Plus, who knows, Joe might have missed riverrock's post amongst the many.  It happens.

The first thing that came to mind when they saw these pictures:

1) ktopp: Shoulda been lathered up with oil, that net never would have stuck to his back...
2) Joe: Hmm, Obama sure does look like Ken Williams, White Sox GM. I wonder if Obama hates Frank Thomas, too?
3) kmvenne: As a Dodger fan, at least there are some managers I would like less then Torre...
4) BigBlu: Is this wrestling? I hope this is wrestling!
5) D2Moo: Kids these days...
Sorry gator-man, I could only manage a single today. But technically, I was included in kmvenne's group post. So that's like 1-1/2.

#2 No I can't bail out even a small car company its against union rules.
#5 I must have taken a wrong turn in portugal or these are the wierdest looking bulls I've ever seen
#4 No it was just like a little bench and the door has a cutout moon on it and you just kind of squat like this. Its better than digging a hole I guess.
#1 Once again monster quest cannot catch the elusive Woods creature that has taken over the golf courses around the world.
#3 So you say you put on your resume you hold the record for hitting into 4 double plays in a row and they still hired you.

2) Obama slips Pujols a check for 50 billion dollars during this handshake, unable to forget that sometimes people shake his hand without expecting a giant governtment bailout in return.

3) "Look, Tony, I don't like it either, but it happened.  Don't shut me out like this!"  "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!"

Train Derailer
4)  Jerry's claim that he could poop an exact likeness of the Dali Lama was not only outrageous, but would eventually lead to his arrest for public indecency and a variety of other charges.

5) Over?  Did you say over?  Nothing is over until we decide it is!!  Was it over when the Sooners bombed Pearl Harbor!!??  Heck no!!  And it ain't over now!!  'Cause when the goin' gets tough..............the tough get goin'! Who's with me!!??  Let's go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5) D2Moo: Kids these days...Kmvenne, they caught me on a day with my smaller casual horns on.  The full dress ones are much more impressive.  I'll try to do better next time. 

I'm more impressed they caught me running.  Last time I was timed in a running event, they used an hourglass and a sundial.
