August Scoreboard
No scores yet.

Previous Winners: kmvenne (8), River_Rat (4), BigBluMasochist (3), Strictly Butta (3), theriverrock (2), BuccinGator (2), Jalap, Mister Peabody, Train Drailer, turbozo, NFL-Solomon, Badger_colorado, TennFan1972, Mr. Mo-Chi

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: Training Camp! (Day 1)

You guys really made it tough for a bunch of these. Especially #2 and #4. Wow!! Great job by skins today. Not sure if this is his 1st triple or not, but he certainly deserved it today. Oh, and Joe!! I forgot to let you know, or maybe you already saw, but I was running the contest last week as a "Lazy Joe" Monday through Thursday, I wasn't sure if you wanted to include those points here. I told the guys that I would ask.

#1 - skinsinsk

Friar Tuck shows up to practice slightly drunk from the night before. He was, however, able to pass a field sobriety test, heal a blind man, kiss three babies, and still throw a football as accurately as Kyle Orton. But what drunk guy can't throw a football as well as Kyle Orton?

#2 - skinsinsk

Will the owner of a Big Blue Ox please check with the parking lot attendant. You didn't properly apply the parking brakes. That's the owner of a Big Blue Ox....

#3 - huachuca

It's never too early to inspire young girls to dream of becoming skanks when they grow up.

#4 - skinsinsk

A little further down and you would see her support for WR Mike Furrey. Or is it Santana Moss?

#5 - Mr. Mo-Chi

Well, this beats how they treated the 7th round pick, who had to carry 3 players' jockstraps in a similar fashion.

Theme - Mr. Mo-Chi

Equations:

1) Tebow + Crazy Haircut + $$$$$ + Plenty of land in Colorado = New religious cult.

2) Leinert + Expectations + Large, symbolic, axe-wielding fictional character = Job is on the chopping block.

3) Mom with 2 kids visiting camp + 2 cheerleaders in their mid to late 20's = $$$$$$ in school tutoring so mom's daughter's don't grow up to be a cheerleader beyond high school.

4) Cooley + Hall + Portis + Drunken Groupie = NFL's next big sexual allegation.

5) NFL rookie + 3 stacked shoulder pads = Badly needed lessons in hazing.

August Scoreboard

1. skinsinsk - 3
2. Mr. Mo-Chi - 2
3. huachuca - 1

2.  All the defensive linemen keep looking at Paul Bunyan's axe wondering if NFL rules would allow them to use it during a game much like Lyle Alzado wanted to use a bat in those SI commericals back in the late 70's.  It would make their job easier against those tricky Wildcat offenses.

1.  Mr. Tebow does his imitation of all three Stooges at once becoming a Mennonite/old time Mormon.  What it really was just another Supercuts butcher job.

2.  Getting the Axe at Cardinals camp means you litterally get the axe, and it's a doozy.

3.  Chiefs cheerleaders are always smiling, even when little girls say they want to grow up to be Cowboys cheerleaders.

4.  Lady Gaga desides she's tired of going after wimpy baseball players like A-Rod and heads for Redskins' camp to snag a real man, or two or three if they're lucky.

5.  Look ma. no brains.

5.  The Channel 7 reporter laughs when the rookie replies to her question about if he enjoys carrying the veterans shoulder pads by replying, "Yes, if I know what's good for me in practice tomorrow."

Welcome back everybody, and congrats to Mr. Mo-Chi for bringing home his first monthly title in July! LaughingFrom rookie to superstardom in record time.  Congrats Mo-Chi.  Unfortunately for me, he cranked pic 1 out of the park before I even logged in.  Like I said, though, I'm on 10 months running with no less than second.  I'll take solace in my unique record.  I want this to reach 1 year straight.  That's my goal, anyway.


(And a special thanks to ktopp for figuring out the tiebreaker in my absence.)
Do we have to?  Okay, thanks ktopp, especially for helping keep the greatest thing ever going.

1) For Tim Tebow, it's Friar Tuck the Ball and Run

2) For Matt Leinart, it's an NFL starting QB.

3) For little Susie, it's captain of the cheerleading squad.

4) For world's biggest Redskins fan skinsinsk Agnes Merriweather, it's Captain Cooley Chaos!!!

5) For Travis Ivey, it's the human shoulder pad rack.

#5.  The gopher came out of the hole, someone threw it in the pool, and Spackler ate it.

Goldie Hawn and the Laugh-In Retro Tour entertain Redskin fans, who were awarded the fickle finger at the show's conclusion.
