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? :)

Fitting on a day when my Royals get some "love" the big winner is BigBluMasochist.

Because all true Royals fans sine 1995 are truly, big blue macochists.

At least the winner had blue for a color.Wink

Number 1 and number 3 were nearly impossible to pick... bravo gentleman! And I've also got to give a nod to D2Moo and Gator on the sets... sorry guys. Something about the phrase "hand fungus medication" gave BigBlu the edge.


River_Rat
1.  Sorry Mike, but you already sold me your soul, and your wifes..and Shane Battier's...and Mike Dunleavy's, ..and Christian Laettner's.  So what the hell, we'll just call this one on the house.

skinsinsk
2) President Obama is asked why his jacket says Nationalize.

River_Rat
3.  That was close, D2Moo almost walked away and forgot his free error marking pencil.  Who ever gets closest to the real number wins tickets to a ballgame.  Second place gets tickets to 3 ballgames.

BuccinGator
4) After a heartbreaking two point loss to the heavily favored Blue Devils, Willie Veasley does his best to cheer up his teammates with his famous Darth Vader impersonation.  "We did not know ... [heavy breathing] ... the power of the Dark Side."

kmvenne
5) That dude from the X Games, he's all like this, all Superman like, but his other leg is out too, then he flips and stuff! It's awesome, I can't do it though, I got loafers on...

BigBluMasochist
HEARD OVER THE P.A. SYSTEM DURING THESE PHOTOS...

1. "Attention. Attention all personnel. A reminder that the 4077th victory party will be held in the mess tent tomorrow at fourteen hundred hours. And Corporal Klinger is to report to Colonel Potter's office on the double - and bring your lawyer."
2. "Ladies and Gentlemen, the children of the Nannie Helen Burroughs School will now thank the President for his executive order postponing tonight's premier of THE VERIZON BLACKBERRY OBAMA FAMILY VARIETY HOUR so as not to interfere with the NCAA Championships!" 
3. "Will stadium vendor Harriet Wells please report to medical: you left your ringworm hand fungus medication at the first aid station..."
4. "Will the owner of a Jaguar - licence plate E-Z-WILLIE - please return to your car: your meter has expired."
5. "Attention convention goers: We have a lost - and very sad - little movie career looking for it's owner at the main lobby sign-in table."

Unfortunately he works for CBS so he's probably checking the coin returns on vending machines.  On that salary he probably can't afford a quarter to flip to determine the results from yesterday.Finally! One of the big wigs must have let a nickel get out of his grasp! As soon as I can find a long enough stick to slide it out from under the Pepsi machine, we'll be in business!

Sympathy for the Devils:

1) Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a gal of short stature and grace
    Been around for four long years, stole many a Dukie's soul with my mascot face

2) And I was round when Obama had his moment of health care pain
    Made damn sure that Pilosi washed her hands and sealed his fate

3) Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
    But what's puzzling you is the nature of my scorecard game

4) I stuck around Indianapolis when I saw it was time for more of the same
    Killed the hearts of all the Bulldogs fans when I deflected the last shot of the game

5) I rode a bike, voiced a movie popular with tykes
    Even voiced a Bee, oh on TV.

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, captions that are puzzling you is the nature of Joe's game, oh yeah

 

Bravo, Bucc.  Magnifico!

I guess time was on your side in writing that one.

Ouch there Bucc.  Actually, I left 2 tickets under my windshield when I went to a game last year because I only needed two.  When I cam back to my vehicle after the game, there were a dozen and a half on my windshield, and two Chiefs tickets to boot.

It not easy being a fan in KC these days.  Thank goodness for my NW Bearcats.
It's all good.  You have some great stuff yourself there today.  Besides, not like the Rays were anything to write home about for most years.

What it's like to be a Royals fan....

1.  When you see someone else when a championship, the only thing you think of is, "At least their team's colors match ours."

2.  Even the lowly Nationals get an important visitor like President Obama.  The Royals get Jesse James trolling the stands cfor tatooed women from Independence and complaining Sandra has it all wrong.

3.  When we go buy programs, we have to ask, "Can you please tell me how Kyle Farnsworth made it on the cover and who in the hell are these other imposters pictured with him."

4.  How Royals fans feel about, oh, Memorial Day about the teams chances of winning again until September.

5.  This obivously was not a Royals player in the picture.  Heck, no one on the Royal ever steals anything.  Bases in particular seem to be a taboo subject arounf these parts.

Look, I can get away with this.  I've had to put up with this team for years now.  And the worst part abiout it all, we still have more WS championships in the modern baseball era than the Cubs.  Guess that's the Cards fan in me coming out.

2) So your the one who will be catch the cermonial first pitch?  Hope you've seen tape of the All Star game.

2) The meet and greet with the youths of the capitol was going well until secret service thought there might be a bomb hidden in that hair.

3) Pssst, let me show you the under the counter items, like these foam hands to hide your embarassment as our bullpen blows another one.

3) Let me guess, you're one of the victims of the KCPD's new effort to crack down on speeding by writing Royals tickets instead of speeding tickets.
