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? :)

1.  Not understanding his assignment, Roy, the junior photographer for Playgirl, was fired for his close ups of balls.

2) "Step aside! 5 sticks of Juicy Fruit for Eric Mangini comin' through!"

3) You can rehabilitated a person as much as you want, but crazy never forgets the comfort of a straight jacket.

#4- How Mexico built a world class soccer team: "Ok girls, now if you miss the next shot we lose pants. See how this works?"

5) The "World's Smallest Woman" came out in public for the first time today.  Her venture did not last long, however, as she was immediately attacked by a hungry butterfly.

What they would say if they weren't inanimate objects:

1) The camera, "God, what a waste of my talents.  8.0 megapixel, 24X zoom, high definition, with an 8GB sim card, and I'm stuck with the guy who has to get within three inches of a freaking golf ball just because it was marked by Tiger Woods."

2) The small patch of tarp he's standing over, "Oh, that's nice.  Could you just stay right there, please?  Every time they drag me out here, it feels like I'm getting peed on, like that's all I'm good for."

3) Erik's pants, "Boy, am I glad I'm not his suit coat!  That spaz would have my zipper broke or my pockets torn.  And I don't even want to THINK what would happen if a cheerleader got near him."

4) Coach's eyeglasses, "I wonder if he needs his percription updated.  It's obvious I'm not the right strength for him anymore.  I mean, light grey coat with dark blue pants?  Clash city.  And those orange and white shoes?  Hideous!!!  But mmmmm, those hot pink numbers he's carrying could work for him."

5) The hat, "I can't believe she actually paid some fancy schmancy designer $1495 for me!!!  And she still hasn't been out on a date since.  I mean, I guess I do take some attention away from her liposuction scar.  And her spider veins.  And the fact she has six toes on her right foot.  But still, ah ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!"

4.  The Italian futbol coach had a strange feeling that he was somehow not alone.

He was also unaware D2Moo couldn't spell either.


3.  In a surprise move to rally his team, Eric Spoelstra goes Jim Carrey and tells them their play is like their lower intestines..stinky and full of danger.  The team rallies, but he is hauled off after the game for a complete psychological analysis.

My spelling is being hauled away for analysis too!

1.  It was a moment for the ages.  A ball struck by a President of the United States that actually landed on or near a fairway and not in a spectators lap.  Time ended up putting the close up on that week's cover.

2.  Mr. Patel was able to save the fabled Mats' of the Mahatma from the Spring monsoon, but couldn't save his sandals from total ruin.  If only his LL Bean Duck Boots had arrived sooner.  Dang call center in neighboring Pakistan.  It had to be their fault.

3.  In a surprise move to rally his team, Eric Spoelstra goes Jim Carrey and tells them their play is like their lower intestines..stinky and full of danger.  The team rallys, but he is hauled off after the game for a complete psychological analysis.

4.  The Itilian futbol coach had a strange feeling that he was somehow not alone.

5.  When Betsy was told she was going to model a Monarch's hat, she assumed it would be a Negro Leagues ball cap, not an actual butterfly.  No way she was wearing this piece of trash in public.

I suppose I should now mention that the game actually took place in Tampa, not Lambeau.

I know....but just wait.Laughing
Well, that just does it right there.  Rat's Caption for number 2 makes no sense because it NEVER rains here in Tampa.  We're the sunshine state for a reason.

By the way, I too would like to extend my thanks to the troops, both past and present, for allowing us to take a break from our daily lives and come in here and have some fun, often at each other's expense, by fighting for and protecting our freedoms.  ktopp24, your salute was very well put, my friend.

#2 - Things have become so bad down in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona that now illegal immigrants are crossing the border so they can steal the siding off your house to recycle back in their homeland.
