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? :)

#1 - EagleMtnAirtax

A new world record was set today when it took Chris Bosh just .0000212345 seconds to prove who had the biggest ego in the room.

#2 - BuccinGator

Isn't that what got octomom in trouble in the first place?  Oh, wait.  Your said ocotpus.  My bad.

#3 - turbozo

Nobody was leaving until Kruk's missing Hogie had been accounted for

#4 - WarpedMind

Looks like Michael Jackson had a ranch in Europe that we didn't know about.

#5 - kmvenne

A Dutch player would later commit a profession foul on that squid, then kung fu kick it in it's chest, adding two more to the ever growing total of yellow cards amassed by the Dutch over the weekend.

As a fan of a non-Heat team, moreso one that thought they were getting LeBron, and an actual fan of Dutch soccer long long before this World Cup, this hasn't been the best week...I demand a pity triple.

1) Chris Bosh finally looks at himself in a reflection after shaving his dreads and lets out a KAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHN style scream.

2) I agree!

3) Bud Selig puts Paul Molitor, childhood hero of kmvenne, on some National League former great group, and kmvenne starts feeling better about the job David Stern does.

Wait...I'm supposed to be funny for #2 and #3? Damn. Let me redo those...

2) Screw the octopus? I believe in Japan, that would be what they call "softcore porn"...

3) John Kruk gets upset at his fellow National League legends and challenges them to a fight "With one nut removed from his body". Not shockingly, nobody steps up to the challenge.

4) Forced to choose between this misspelled Nederland sign or the one he printed himself for Holland where the font was too big and only the first two letters printed off...Thomas Van van der Van chooses wisley for a rare change.

5) A Dutch player would later commit a profession foul on that squid, then kung fu kick it in it's chest, adding two more to the ever growing total of yellow cards amassed by the Dutch over the weekend.

1.  The Octopus predicts the Heat will win more than 50 games and then collapse in the playoffs next year.

2.  All together, this creature has 4 heads and 8 hands to deal with the octopus, but couldn't get it done.

3.  Remember big guy, if you compliment the players at the all-star game, you could be violating the MLB anti-tampering rules.

4.  This fan stayed awake through 120 minutes of 1-0 soccer.  The only entertaining thing about the game was all the over-acting by the Spanish team - rolling around holding their legs even on those occasions when nobody actually made contact with them.

5.  Will they let this guy take a live octopus on the airplane when he goes home, or will he and his buddies just eat it during the celebrations?

1 -- Thought blurbs left to right :  "I hope these guys worked out enough to carry my ass all season", "Who the hell invited Bosh", "I wonder what Noah and Boozer are up to"

2 -- After talking it over, they all agreed a sign saying, "F--k the Squid"...was just too much.

3 -- Nobody was leaving until Kruk's missing Hogie had been accounted for

4 -- Do to an ironic typo, ad banners for the Grand Opening of Nerd-e-Land were woefully ineffective

5 -- Esteban, the late entry and seeming dark horse in the competition shocked the field by being unanimously named, 'The Creepiest Freaking Guy Alive' over the weekend.  With this win, Esteban will re-up on octupi and begin training to compete for 'The Creepiest Freeking Guy EVER' title in Amsterdam this Fall.
