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? :)

2.  The only way an assistant FIFA referee will ever get respect is to buy the Arethea Franklin song on I-Tunes.

3.  Joe liked the Devils zone trap so much, he decided it just might work on some unsuspecting females down at his favorite watering hole.

Pic 4)  After back to back losses, the Wolverines keep spirits high during afternoon practice by singing, "The sun will come out tomorrow!  Bet your bottom dollar that, tomorrow, there'll be sun!!!!!"

More TV shows that Richard Heene planned to pitch had his Balloon Boy hoax actually worked.

1.  My Name is Richard -- NBC  Richard stars as himself as he has a date with karma after buying a losing lottery ticket.  See Richard try to make people believe he is a model father and the greatest reality show star since Rupert Boneham.

2. The Assistant (referee) -- MTV  The show takes place in Brazil as Richard Henne and 11 other hopefuls compete on the reality show for a full time job as a World Cup referee.  The competition is brutal and we guarantee a trauma to the groin in each episode.  Andy Dick is your guest host.

3. CSI Beverly Hills -- FOX  Richard stars as Joe Jackson as he teams up with O.J. Simpson to track down the real killers of their wife and son.  Richard and O.J. interrogate possible witness's as the comb for suspects at golf courses and professional sports arenas nation wide.

4. Michigan Wolverines, The Musical --  ABC  Richard stars as quarterback for this once proud gridiron program as it falls from grace.  With original songs such as, We Have A New Coach But We Still Suck, There Goes Another Pick Six, and Where Oh Where Has My Schembechler Gone.

5. Hamlet United -- BBC  Richard stars as a midfielder for an up and coming soccer team that can only communicate in Shakesperian diolog.  To kick, or not to kick, that is the question, whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of this yellow card, or to spite thine enemy on the field with a well placed foot tweenst the legs.

1.) Oddly enough he has the same thing printed on the front of his underwear. Although they weren't yellow when he bought them.

2.) Respect: Anyone that wears that hideous shirt deserves none.

3.) Weezy Jefferson. Back from the dead and sitting court side!

4.) Even is Michigan it's all about the jazz hands.

5.) Please don't yellow card me, I'll do anything..........anything!

What it's like to be behind the times.....

1.  He's smiling because he's never texted anyone in his life.  The only way he's getting a second chance is to buy another ticket.

2.  This man is proud to be an asst. referee.  Last time any one had pride in that job Pele was a youngster.

3.  Joe just wanted to show the Mrs. the jacket he bought in 1985 would still fit.  The Mrs. still gives him grief about that one.  At least the jewelry always fits.

4.  Dissing Rich Rodriguez's taste in music by putting on a pair of early 80's walkman headphones and singing Atomic Dog before a tesam meeting was a sure route to the bench in any era.

5.  Being an old fashioned guy, Muller was always taught to get on one knee to pray, even if was in the middle of a game.  In this case the yellowcard was not only for delay of game, but for praying that the red team players would be smitten by fire from heaven.

4.  After his most recent cut from the NFL, Jeff Garcia hoping to catch on somewhere, returns to college, this time at Michigan.  Figuring he will soon be busted, he decides to take the opportunity to learn to sing show tunes in hope of catching on somewhere else, like on Broadway.  This will only lead to more and more cuts as he discovers that just as he was unable to stick with even the lowly pathetic Raiders, he can't even make it singing show tunes in the local dinner theatre in Boise Idaho.  Stay tuned as we follow Jeff in his return to high school.

4. Is it just me or does this guy look just like Jeff Garcia?

1.  Boston fans still show their anguish, as even though this guy lost the lottery at least he's not Bill Buckner.

2.  Actually the assistant referee doesn't fill in for the referee so much as he does bring him coffee and update his excel files.

3.  Still pimpin it old school after all these years

4.  The hillllllls are a-live with the sound of foooooot ballllllll!!!!

5.  Muller didn't get the yellow card for the inappropriate act of a proposal in the middle of a game but because he forgot the darn ring!
