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 challenge runs daily, Monday-Thursday. Each day's competition will usually be posted by noon ET, and will usually end around 11 p.m. ET. On Monday and Wednesday, Community member ktopp24 will be the judge. On Tuesday and Thursday, I'll run the show. If one of the judges 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 that day's challenge 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 zero.

This is just for fun, and there are no real prizes at this time. Who thinks they can make us laugh? :)

1- Moments later the two smiling officers would lie motionless and earless in a heep of the ground.

2- Wilt hold up a sign indicating the number of woman he has yet to sleep with.

3- How close can I get before see whacks me with the bat. Closer. Closer. Closer.

4- Of all the Bulls asked were they were going after winning the Finals Jordan was the only one that did reply with "Disneyland". He replied "I'm going to Atlantic City baby!"

5- MJ saw this photo in the newspaper and immediately phoned Tyson and invited him to Atlantic City.

Photo Caption Challenge: Going Old School!

#1 - huachuca

There is a 6 month quarantine on dogs brought into England unless you can prove they don't bite.

#2 - BigBluMasochist

What always seems to go unnoticed about this famous photo is the fact that it ISN'T the left leg sticking out of Wilt's shorts... 

#3 - BigBluMasochist

Against her agent's wishes, the pitcher intentionally threw high and tight since the boys always got a chuckle when Marylin complained about "his balls being too close" to her face.

#4 - BuccinGator (can't believe I actually had to do this)

Shortly after this picture was taken, the cigar exploded and a note was found attached to the box "Dear Mike.  Hope you enjoy this box of Cuba's finest.  Sincerely, Sam Bowie."

#5 - WarpedMind

"Yeah, I wanna place a bet on this up-and-coming dude named Buster Douglas."

Theme - kmvenne

What if this was 2010?

1) Nobody would blink an eye...

2) People would discredit the 100 point game, seeing as how it came against the Knicks and Mike D'Antoni's defensive-less system.

3) People would blame any slump Carlos Quentin had this season on his involvement with the Jessica Simpson of her day

4) This cigar would be in honor of a fine round of golf that he played instead of tending to the daily operations of the Charlotte Bobcats

5) The IRS would come in an confiscate that money, and that belt as well.

Quotes from that loveable pal o' mine, The Honeymooners ED NORTON!

1. "If my wife Trixie is looking in, and when I come home, she says, "I told you so," I'm gonna belt her right in the mouth!"

2. "I'm not a-scared of you... If you could count they wouldn't be investigating your taxes!"

3. "Helloooooo, Ball!"

4. "Hey, Ralph - would you, uh, care to start at the other end?"

5. "... and there's plenty more where that came from!"

Things ktopp missed while on Spring Break:

1) A la Mike Tyson and Robin Givens, Buc is finally hauled away when those stalking charges by Danica finally stick in St. Pete.

2) BigBlu's successful return to the caption contest and his lofty goal for lifetime first place finishes.

3) D2Moo meeting somebody famous at the Royals home opener, and having to score an autograph for his son.

4) River_Rat celebrating his March victory in style (or kmvenne safe in the knowledge he's still got the field lapped 3 times over).

5) Himself being able to wager it all on Hasseem Abdul Aswari to take this year's Turkish Oil Wrestling Championship.

All right!!! Forty some odd captions!  Let's make ktopp earn that money he's not being paid!!!!

1) "Hey, I tawt yous guys wasn't opposed to smiwill nos matter whats."

2) This photo from early in Wilt's career shows he only has 9,900 to go to catch himself.

3) One has to wonder if this is the photo that inspired Keith Jackson's famous line of "Whoa, Nellie."

4) Shortly after this picture was taken, the cigar exploded and a note was found attached to the box "Dear Mike.  Hope you enjoy this box of Cuba's finest.  Sincerely, Sam Bowie."

5) Trying to dechiper Mike's shirt, the best I can come up with is that this was the part of the video that was cut out of 2 Live Crew's "Misso, er, Me So Horny."

3. Off camera, Joe DiMaggio offered some words of encouragement by shouting "OK, Baby! Lets see if you can go deep now!" - but became irate when both Marilyn AND Nellie Fox responded, "OK, Joe!"

2. Mark lost the Final Jeopardy round when his response to "the innermost of the four Galilean moons of the planet Jupiter, with a diameter of 2,263 miles" not only included too many "o"s at the end, but was not phrased as a question.
