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? :)

Guys... I'm buried in NBA free agency stuff. Can't get a contest up today. If someone wants to go "Lazy Joe" today, feel free. Maybe I'll try to get one up tomorrow and let it ride through the holiday.

Sorry for the late notice.

Thanks everyone.  Awesome list, Joe.  I was ROTFLOL.  Just think, World Cup still goes on for the first half of July.  Maybe I can run out to a fast start and try to flag number 3.  Been kinda quiet the past couple days.  Like I said, I hope it's a vacation day.  Definitely miss Mo-Chi.  He was doing great.  A championship for him can't be too far off.  Hopefully they'll all start to show back.  Good luck to everyone in July.

No seriously, congrats to BuccinGator for his 2nd championship. I'm sure there are great things that come in twos but I'm too tired to name them.
Congrats Gator...

May I present... my list of the Top 10 Things That Come in Twos :

1. Eyeballs (Hey, they're useful.)
2. Testicles (For people not named Lance Armstrong)
3. Breasts (Nuff said.)
4. Corn (Think about it.)
5. Nellie Fox (Go White Sox!)
6. Double monocles (Suck it, Mr. Peanut.)
7. Twix (Dude... They've got caramel.)
8. Twins (Coors Light tells me it's so.)
9. Very short, time-saving foreplay (Twoplay! Get it?)
10. Pencils (How would we have gotten through standardized testing without them?)

I pair my 8 titles in 4 groups of 2. All of them are great. I make them play wastepaper basketball 2 on 2 tourneys. December 2008 and January 2010 are ruthless, they win all the time.

Congrats to Buccin for scoring some insane number of points I ran out of body parts to count. I got to 21 and lost count, then got arrested for taking my pants off because I was in public when I did this.

Joe, did you inform everybody of the new rule that soccer fans are not allowed to win championships? I believe it was in the addendum you passed out at the last board of directors meeting. Anyways, with that being said, congrats to KMVENNE!!!! 9 is a great number isn't it!!! Everything great comes in 9's. The Brady Bunch (if you include Alice), cat's lives, a stitch in time saves it, and 9AM is awesome.

#1 - WarpedMind

While security double and triple checks some fan passes, dirty cops and drunken pilots typically manage to waltz right in.

#2 - River_Rat

Smurfette shows how she was kept all those smurfs blue all of those years, turns out, she was a tease.

#3 - WarpedMind

Tap, tap, tap.  "You're not gonna believe this, but some yahoo took the roll of toilet paper from my stall and threw it on to the field.  Can you pass me yours for a sec?  My hand's right here under the divider wall.  Thanx, man.  'Preciate it.  By the way, my name's Senator Larry Craig.  Nice to meet ya."

#4 - River_Rat

Most guys didn't notice Shaun swing, they were fantasiz.....err.....concentrating on her grip.

#5 - kmvenne

Argentinians continue to play the national game of "Try to act weirder then Maradona!", with a $10,000,000 first prize on the line. Despite the best efforts of some folks, there is still no winner.

Theme - BuccinGator

Buc's Ode To Soccer:

1) The art of the deal
    Agnes learned from her pappy
    But getting busted for scalping
    Seems to make her all too happy

2) The Italians are passionate
    Full of beauty, charm, and grace
    But what makes her more lovely
    Is the lack of hair on her face

3) With a sport that's so boring
    Americans often look for another escape
    Here's a pitch crew so stupid
    They use TP as a measuring tape

4) Another zero-zero tie
    The same result as last time
    Shows why the world's game
    Isn't our national pasttime

5) But no fans are more crazy
    A odd hoodlumy sort
    Be they crossdressing unicorn centaurs
    Or simply married to the sport.

1. What I was hoping for was her arrest by the fashion police for showing those puffy ankles in public.

2.  After this photo, we all might have to re-think our aversions to desiring blue haired ladies.

3.  If it's European toilet paper the only two uses for it is when your team scores a goal and when there is wood needing sanding.

4.  Dang, they brought back the stupid shorts on the South Side.  Better her legs than Steve Lyon's underwear though.

5.  Looks like all this Italian "granny" could cook up was a fast exit from the tournament and a sooner than expected flight home.
