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? :)

You just gave kmvenna two points so I'd be in sole possession of second, didn't ya?  Here I go again

First of all, who's kmvenna? Kmvenne's hot sister?

Second, isn't that where you belong? I thought you had a contract with Joe to take 2nd place every month. If I'm wrong let me know.

BTW, did you see the scoreboard after Joe awarded points on Tuesday? He had you with 7 points, tied with kmvenne for the lead. But he had you listed in 3rd place. And the person right behind you had 5 points but he was listed in 2nd place. Crazy crazy Joe!!

#1 - wetookthebait

With their 250 million dollar payroll, Alex probably should have been less surprised when his inspection uncovered that the team could only afford World Series rings made from a high-grade cubic zirconia

#2 - River_Rat

No Ron, The Spice Girls was the name of Victoria's band, they didn't taste like different spices.  And for the record Riboflavin is a vitimin, not a spice

#3 - River_Rat

In keeping up with the tradition of the Waltons taking hours to say good night, these two Walton's took 23 minutes just for a handshake

#4 - kmvenne

Yogi: "This isn't the Yankee Stadium I remember. It's not in black and white!"

#5 - kmvenne

 Team: So how did a dopey, out of shape, ugly looking lion like you get to be King of the Jungle?

Lion: My dad was King!

Team: Oh, that makes sense. They told to to expect something like this after George W. Bush bought the team....

Theme - BuccinGator

Yogi-isms:

1) A-Rod to himself most Octobers, "Slump?  I ain't in no slump ... I just ain't hitting."

2) Beckham to Artest, "If you ask me anything I don't know, I'm not going to answer."

3) Luke to dad, "The other teams could make trouble for us if they win."

4) Yogi to the Cubs fans from yesterday, "If people don't want to come out to the ball park, nobody's gonna stop 'em."

5) Mascot to team, "Half the lies they tell about me aren't true."

#1 Now what do I do? I had my nails done especially for my first series ring. My shades are on the ready. But they made it too small!

#2 With your height and a few pointers, I can show you how easy it would be just to head the ball into the basket. You will be the league allstar and be as well-known as I am.

#3 This handshake is no joke, son. I won't be letting go until you promise to stop telling your friends that I am running around on your mother.

#4 I don't know for sure, Yogi, but that trophy looks awfully small. Do you  think its genuine?  It has to be, Whitey, Mr. Steinbrenner would never make bad stuff.

#5 These owners never let us play the game. This one dresses up for the team picture and now we all look like the toadies that we are.

1.  The ring is too big, he mistakenly told them the ring size from his steroid years.

2.  I don't know how you do it.  You soccer players are sissies, but you get the girls anyway.

3.  I don't know about these Waltons.  Sam and Bud made a ton of money building up a huge business, while Bill and Luke made a bunch of money playing kids games.

4.  Whitey Ford insists he never threw a spitball during his playing career, but he looks like he's loading up now to throw out the first spitball to open the new Yankee Stadium.

4.  Yogi says you can ask his buddy about scuffed baseballs late in his career and he'll talk about it politely, but don't ask him about the "moon shot" homerun blast he gave up to Mike Shannon in the 1964 World Series.

5.  Shuless surrounded by the top rated members of the Never fire Shuless Joe group.

5.  Gwen Verdon and fellow cast members from the 1958 movie classic "Damn Yankees", take a break from rehearsing the musical number, "Shoeless Joe from Hannibal MO".

5.  That mascot looks alot like Sluggerrr here in KC.  I wonder if he shoots bangers and mashies at the crowd with an air cannon?  Has he ever been sued for almost putting someones eye out by throwing a sausage behind his back while in the stands?  Probably not, but then again Slugerrr has never been attacked by soccer hooligans either like this poor fellow probably has.

4.  While Whitey looks real hard at the Championship Trophy trying to remember what it is, Yogi just stares and daydreams about somehow getting those nifty AFLAC commericals back from thst young whippersnapper Carl Edwards.

Sorry about the typo I didn't catch in the last correction.

It's like deja vu all over again.Smile

1.  In a deep, comtemplative moment after recieving his long awaited World Series Championship ring, Alex decided tonight was the night ot take that extra long hot shower he had been promising himself.  Yes, in the end, the only one who could love Alex the way he wanted to be loved is ....Alex.

2.  Beckham explains how he bends the soccer ball into the net.  In reality Ron was more interested how David "bent it" with Victoria.

3.  Father and son meet to share a moment and tell each other how horrrrrible the other one looks these days. 

4.  While Whitey looks real hard at the Championship Trophy trying to remember what it is, Yogi just stares a daydreams about somehow getting those nifty AFLAC commericals back from thst young whippwesnapper Carl Edwards.

1) "What a cheapskate! I thought I told George that I wanted one diamond for every million dollars I'm overpaid!"

2) "Why is it me and the rest of the guys in the NBA have to follow a dress code, while you make millions and look like you just finished your shift at Jiffy Lube?"

3) "It's an honor to meet you, Mr. Rambis!"

4) "Hey Whitey. We'll give them the rings. Which is just as good as jewelry!"

5) Everyone plays along just fine through Bobby's (lower middle) acid trip.
