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. Roger Goodell exposes his inner nerd: "You see... you're both from Puerto Rico, right? Puerto Rico was a Spanish colony from 1508 to 1898. And, while the Spanish did enslave your Indian ancestors for a short period of time during their stay, they are still much more a link to your cultural heritage than their American contemporaries. With that in mind, I looked at the period when your homeland was thriving as a Spanish colony. During that era, Spain had many major victories, but maybe none more important than, yep, you guessed it, the Siege of Breda... which began in 1624! See, I knew you'd appreciate it!"
If he's good, he's good.


1) How did this signing come about?

Charlie Weis , the current Notre Dame head coach, spoke about his baseball dream with Brady Quinn - who played with Weis in 2004. Quinn then told his second cousin, Zachary Ty Bryan who is most known for his work on the hit series, Home Improvement . Zachary remains good friends with show producer, Matt Williams , and he told Williams about Weis' interest.

In the Home Improvement pre-production meetings, Williams thought of running a show segment called "Hammer Time." In 1991, after a short legal battle with rap superstar M.C. Hammer , Williams backed off and re-named the program "Tool Time" to avoid confusion. Williams and Hammer remained friends after the altercation, and Williams explained Weis' interest in baseball.

Well M.C. Hammer, otherwise known as Stanley Kirk Burrell, decided something needs to be done. Burrell gained his nickname from former Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Pedro Garcia , who called him "Little Hammer" due to his stunning resemblence to Hank Aaron. Gargia played on the inaugeral Blue Jays' season in 1977, and he informed his former teammate Pete Vuckovich of Weis' dream.

Vuckovich, of course, in known for his role as the Yankee slugger Clu Haywood in the movie, Major League . As part of his training, Vuckovich consulted then Yankees owner George Steinbrenner as to how "The Boss" would like the Yankee to be portrayed. Steinbrenner was so moved by Vuckovich's consideration, they developed a long-time friendship that remains in tact, even to this day.

Once George heard of Weis' dream, he immediately told his sons Hank and Hal Steinbrenner .

They signed Charlie Weis the next day.

Agreed, Bee.  All six winners today were points well earned.  It's days like today Joe could hand out some honorable mentions. Too many to list, but I really liked a few of the sets, and the Flight of the Cochords reference was tough to eliminate.

These pictures seem normal at first glance...

1) ...I just thought the Yanks signed David Wells again.
2) ...I figured that was just Sarah Jessica Parker.
3) ...it just seemd like two dudes goofing off.
4) ...I figured John Amaechi was just their head coach.
5) ...I thought the Dolphis had just traded for Tony Romo and Troy Polamalu.

Actually you're both wrong.  I'm Mitch Connor!  Just your run of the mill con man.  I've been moving from town to town, scamming people since I fifteen.  But I'm tired of running. I wonder... will I dream?

Anybody know what team that 3rd logo on the background belongs to? Obviously I know the Yankees and Notre Dame's logo, but that one with the big "A" and a caped guy with a sword I can't figure out.

Yeah it's supposed to be for the Army.  You'd think they'd just use a recruiting poster or something.  "Uncle Sam wants YOU to kick a field goal!"
This thing looks like the top secret evil laser sword weilding space super soldier that's locked up in Area 51.  But I hear that's just a rumor.
