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? :)

Photo Caption Challenge: LeBron signs...

Photo 1)  Cleveland, OH USA  July 04, 2010.  During a commercial shoot, LeBron James, off camera, is heard to say "I am so glad this is my last gig in this town..."

Photo 2)  LeBron James has big fans in South Beach, ready to party, waiting for his big announcement.  Or maybe this is Havanna.  I'll get back to you on that.

Photo 3)  Translation of sign outside of Palace in Auburn Hills, MI :  We Don't Want and Don't Need LeBron In Detroit !!

Photo 4)  While the Boys and Girls Club in Greenwich were on pins and needles during The Decision broadcast, the South Beach retirement center was celebrating another month of funding with a round of cereal for all.

Photo 5)  Mr. and Mrs. Fox are appalled at LeBrons' decision.  They were promised top billing next year at the Cavalier's half-time festivities by the King himself for every game he played at Quicken Loans Arena.  Add another fatality to broken promises.

1) 7/8/10 9:10 pm.  In an interview on ESPN, LeBron James stunned the NBA world by announcing that he had signed with the Sprites of the Lilliputian Basketball Association.

kmvenne
2) Osama is in your pants? I'm pretty sure that was just something your girlfriend said in an effort to get you to do some manscaping.....

WarpedMind
3)  No big deal; I'd rather trolley on the glen anyway.

River_Rat
4.  Grovemo..the love child of Elmo and Grover, tries to re-enact his famous fathers skit of near and far from Sesame Street.  However, Agnes threatens the little muppet with his life if he keeps messing with her pudding.

huachuca
5.  Some of the internet dating services are surprisingly good at matching people up.

Can You Feel The Heat?:

1) LeBron obeys his thirst for a championship by going to Miami, only failing to realize he's now in the same division as the Magic causing both teams to not win a title over the next three years.

2) Thankfully for King James, Osama was sited at the World Cup in South Africa and is no where near Miami.

3) Hanging around South Beach, LeBron and Bosh will need to learn how to stay out of the Heathers, and the Rachels, and the Nicoles, and the ...

4) LeBron better get used to fan appreciation breakfasts like these.

5) "Oh my god!  Did you hear?  We didn't get LeBron.  And I thought we had such a good chance at him."

Yup, this about sums up last night.  I understand about wanting to be around better players, but why would you want to go to argueably one of the toughest divisions in basketball.  The Heat might be too beat up in the regular season to make any noise in the playoffs.
This thing can only go two ways... huge success or monumental disaster. And it'll be a lot harder to get to the first one.

3.  I'm sick of trolleys.  Quit trolleying, you trolley!

4.  "Now fake a smile for your mushy breakfast"

5.  Aaahhh!!!!  Somebody shaved the fur from your arms!!!

1) In one last cash grab on his way out the door, LeBron sells overpriced Sprite to people desperate to mix up some Purple Drank and feel better about his betrayal of the Cavs.
