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? :)

All right, now I know this is a conspiricy. I should get a 1/2 point at least...stupid Gator-dork.How about getting points for reposting other people's posts?  Forgot if that happened to you, or if you did it to somebody else.  It's funny, because I only do themes about 20% of the time, usually because I can't come up with a good one, yet both my points this month are from themed posts.  And I do kind of owe you and warped a half point for them.  You for your impecable timing, and warped for being semi-psychic.  Just put my finishing touches on them is all.

Train Derailer
1)  It was as Cardinal Rufus feared.  The cyclists confirmed that the prevailing winds had blown the propeller from his beenie, and with current waning membership in his Church of the Stark Raving Mad and coexisiting budget woes, it would be months before he could justify the expense of another.

2.  Unfortunately it was later explained to Alberto that he has to win the next stage to retain the Yellow Jersey.  Licking it does not make it his.

Train Derailer
3)  End-stage neurosyphilis:  The scourge of rural France.

kmvenne
4) Here we see a reenactment of the German "Blitz-Craig" attack on France during WWII, when the Germans sent a guy named Craig with a big pole on a bike to France and earned an unconditional surrender in no time flat.

5) Members of the cycling team A.S.S.C.L.O.W.N.N, the Association of Swiss Sacha Cohen Lookalikes Often Wearing Next to Nothing, protest the Tour de France's stringent uniform policy prior to Sunday's Stage 15. 



BuccinGator
In honor of Ktopp pride day here at the caption contest ...

1) Here we see Ktopp offering words of encouragement before the start of the 18th stage of the Tour de France
2) Contador can't seem to get rid of the smell of the flowery perfume Ktopp is wearing in Photo 1.
3) Here we see Ktopp crazy cousin Larry, who thinks his helmet is all the rage.
4) BuccinGator overcomes his fear of heights just to get as far away from Ktopp as possible.
5) Do I really need to say anything for this one?

#4 - Nothing would stop Bernie from finishing the race. And when sombody stole the tires off his rims, he just hopped on the power wires and rode them all the way in....76 days later....void of any body hair....or brain activity.

#5 - Hey kmvenne, I know that you have won 5 of these contests, 4 consecutively, but is it really necessary to rub it in by posting your celebratory vacation photos?
