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? :)

Is this really a mistake? I liked to think of that as foreshadowing...Nah, if it was foreshadowing, it would have had a 2 by it.

By the way Joe, as long as were picking on each other, this is how you had the scores listed after Tuesday's contest. Kmvenne and Buc were tied with 7 points but kmvenne was listed as 1st place and Buc was listed as 3rd.

All right, just having fun.  Use any word you like.

It's not one of those magic words that will get your post deleted by the administrator.

I apologize for my suddenly lack of typing ability (like I really had any to begin with) recently.  Apparently if I type too fast, mistakes are the norm rather than the exception.  For some reason the more typing done, the worse I seem to get.  It is probably getting very old by now.

Of course realizing the entertainment value in the mistakes, I can continue on as normal if you all wish.  This is a fun blog after all. typos and all.  Thanks for putting up with me.

No apology necessary Moo. We were just giving you some flack.

For your entertainment, there is a wikipedia article on the double negative word (or non-word) "irregardless".
  in part says:

Smile

Irregardless is an informal term meaning regardless or irrespective, which has caused controversy since it first appeared in the early twentieth century. Most dictionaries list it as "incorrect" or "nonstandard".

The origin of irregardless is not known for certain, but the speculation among references is that it may be a , or , of irrespective and regardless, both of which are commonly accepted words. By blending these words, an illogical word is created. Another possibility is that when people say "irregardless" they are following the pattern of words like "irrelevant", "irrational" and "irregular". "Since the prefix ir- means 'not' (as it does with irrespective), and the suffix -less means 'without,' irregardless is a ."<sup id="ref_Rooney" class="reference plainlinks nourlexpansion"></sup> According to the , Irregardless was first acknowledged in 1912 by the as originating from western . Barely a decade later, the usage dispute over irregardless was such that, in 1923, published an article titled "Is There Such a Word as Irregardless in the English Language?"<sup id="ref_Murray" class="reference plainlinks nourlexpansion"></sup>

Hey, I just corrected the spelling of the word, not the context in which it was used.
Unfortunately, irregardless isn't a word.  Regardless is.  Hence my correction of your correction.

By the way Joe, as long as were picking on each other, this is how you had the scores listed after Tuesday's contest. Kmvenne and Buc were tied with 7 points but kmvenne was listed as 1st place and Buc was listed as 3rd. BigBlu and Rat were both tied at 5 points but BigBlu was listed as 2nd place and Rat was listed as 3rd. D2Moo was listed as tied for 4th even though he had 3 points and everybody else listed as 4th place had 2 points. Drunk, were we?
