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? :)

OK... First thing tomorrow I'll be trying to to track down the guy who hacked in to Gator's account this week. WinkNah, no hacker.  Did make the little bit of money I spent on breaking down and buying that netbook to take to the beach on my father son vacation worth it, though.  I'm just scared now that soccer will follow me around like Turkish Oil Wrestling has done to ktopp.

Helluva day, Gator. And a very nice set by Mr. Mo-Chi as well.


We're off tomorrow. See everyone on Monday!

River_Rat
1.  You should have seen the defenders running like sissy's when King Kong was awarded the indirect free kick.

BuccinGator
2) Deep inside Area 51, government employees while away the time by holding stunt riding competitions.

BuccinGator
3) Aye, fight and you may get wet. Run, and you'll stay dry... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR WET T-SHIRT CONTESTS!!!

kmvenne
4) Putting a webcam into your daughetrs favorite pool toy may lead to one of the oddest "outings" in recorded history.

BuccinGator
5) Desperate to make soccer more watchable, German scientists succeed in combining the kaleidoscope with the vuvuzela simultaneously creating psychadelic images while finally silencing those damn hornet drone horns.  And there was much rejoicing, "yea."



Mr. Mo-Chi
Coming out in theaters this summer :

1) .....Mia Hamm plays the jilted lover of a cheating boyfiend in the re-make of "Attack of the 50 foot Woman"!
2) .....Tired of all the killing, this creature finds a new passion, and wants to show he can compete in "Alien vs Seabiscuit".
3) ..... From the troupe that brought us Animal House, a distant decendant of William Wallace arrives on campus for his freshman year and find's out what college is all about in "National Lampoon's: Braveliver"!
4) .....Pee Wee Herman portrays a one-armed, 14 year old Slovakian girl, who's only dream in life is to play water polo, and has to learn how to pass and shoot with her head in "Seal Her Fate"!
5) .....the man who wrote about everything that could be done with duct tape gives us a light-hearted short sketch in "1,000,001 uses for Vuvuzelas."

1) Brooklyn uses the World Cup fever sweeping the nation to make the cost-controlled housing destruction necessary to allow the Nets to use eminant domain to build a new stadium a bit more popular.

2) Aliens are sick and tired of all this weak sauce Twilight crap gving monsters a bad name, and are ready to remind us that monsters arn't sexy, they are deadly.

3) After stealing the Irish's spot in the World Cup, then embarassing themselves, the French thought the worst was over, until some IRA members with soapy water filled water guns went Braveheart all over them.

4) Putting a webcam into your daughetrs favorite pool toy may lead to one of the oddest "outings" in recorded history.

5) This german baby named Adolf uses his vuvuzela to scope out weaknesses in the defense of opposing nations. It was even spookier when his chocolate milk toothpick stache was still on him.

1) I warned everyone, that if Nike got as big as they are now, they were going to destroy the world!

2) We get it. He's been retired for years. We all knew that Jordan could fly!

3) One can only imagine what, or who, these guys' girlfriends are doing now.

4) Stop smiling for the camera. Seriously. Name the last person who's made any kind of endorsement money from being a water polo player?

5) Mark my words. 2035. You're looking at the future commander of the German Naval Forces!

1.  The rural Tipton, Missouri water tower is round in shape and decorated like an "8 ball" because they used to make pool equipment there.  This picture shows the damage to the town's image when some young vandals from a nearby town climbed up there and painted it like a soccer ball.

3.  These guys have a concealed carry permit.  What's in your wallet?

5.  This budding young engineer is checking out why it didn't make any noise when he tried blowing into the big end.  When he takes it away from his face you will see a ring of shoe polish around his eye - courtesy of his big brother.

5.  That's probably a much better place to stick one of those than I had in mind for everyone using a vuvuzela.  Although where I want folks to stick one of those, you could still "toot" your horn, still making an annoying noise.
