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? :)

I just want to know if I was close with my set. 
You were a very close 2nd place. You both had me rollin', but Chi's Hallmark set was classic.

I just want to know if I was close with my set.  Knew I was behind the eight ball (similar to the tie break where Mo-Chi had executed a Stone Cold Stunner on Pic 1 before I logged in).

Oh, and there is hope for my streak reaching 12 months now.  Back in second where I belong!!!!  Thanks Joe and ktopp.

Photo Caption Challenge: Training Camp (Day 3)

** ATTENTION ** All scores have been combined between Joe's blog this week and my Lazy Joe from last week.

#1 - skinsinsk

"Hmm. It appears to be a thank-you letter from Lebron..."

#2 - BuccinGator

Not even the arrival of Superman could turn around this once storied franchise.

#3 - D2Moo

Running backs really didn't mind practicing techniques out of a port-a-john.  Besides, they stank less than the defensive linemen anyway.

#4 - Mr. Mo-Chi

At least Eli is honest, when asked how much he needs to improve to be included in the same class as his brother.

#5 - BuccinGator

Packers players and fans alike celebrate "Brett Favre Diva Appreciation Days."  And what says diva better than a Barbie bike?

Theme - Mr. Mo-Chi

New Hallmark Greeting Cards :

1) To our very special defensive tackle............If you can drive by a Burger King and learn to stay away,... then just maybe we'll let your fat ass play!!!

2) To the man calling the shots on game day..............When you get fired for another losing season and have no place to go,... just go across the bay and be a coordinator in San Francisco!!
 3) Get Well Soon!!!.................Training camp helps us evaluate your toughness and grit.... But, the cafeteria food will frequently make you $hit!!

4) To our franchise QB................. Trying to find a new target to throw to is like filling a round hole with a square peg.... Well, at least one that won't go out and cap himself in the leg!!

5) Dear rookie.................... This type of hazing may be humiliating, and seem a little crass.... But, it was eith this, or we'll just beat your ass!!

Sorry guys, just got back from Milwaukee watching the Brewers get spanked by the Diamondbacks. Kinda cool that I got to see back-to-back-to-back-to-back (yes that's 4 in a row) homeruns, even though it was Arizona doing it. I guess they are only the 7th team in history to do it, and I was there to witnes it.

I'll get the scores in the morning, like I usually do.

Ahhhhhh look've wondered right smack in the middle of a Buc Caption Carpet Bombing.  Laughing

Nah.  Sometimes they come to me all at once, other times, piecemeal.

I think I have just read my new favorite theme post ever.  Brilliant Mo-Chi.Sniff, sniff, even better than some of my classics?  J/K.  I am out to top Mo's theme, though.  Great job as usual, Chi.

Endorsement Deals Gone Horribly Wrong:

1) "Hi, I'm Albert Haynesworth, here for BuccinGator's new 'Slim-Quick/Brain Quicker' combination dietary/memory boosting supplement."

2) "Hi, I'm Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable, here for BuccinGator's new anger management program, 'The Assistant's Face Is Not A Stress Reliever.'"

3) "Hi, I'm Super Bowl champion Tight End Jeremy Stevens, here for BuccinGator's new brand of Port-O-Potties, 'Swamp Stalls.'  They smell so bad, they'll make you want to go."

4) "Hi, I'm Peyton Manning's insignificant little brother, Eli, here for BuccinGator's new line of 2 1/2-D TV's.  Witness picture so semi-life like, with depth somewhere just above 'flat,' that it'll leave you wondering if I'm simply bragging to the nearest cheerleader, or trying to order a $5 footlong."

5) "Hi, I'm Packers Punter Tim Masthay, here for BuccinGator's new psychobabble self-help book, 'Men's Minds Are On Barbies, Women's Are On Bill Gates.'  Learn that all men and women deep down really are just a bunch of superficial lustful/gold digging bastards or *****es which is why I can't get a girl to give me the time of day, much less her phone number."

#1: "Have you read the letters I'm getting?: 'Dear Albert, my name is Maurice. I am eight years old. I am your biggest fan. How come you are not so dominant anymore? My daddy says you were never dominant, but just a Hollywood phony. I told him he was wrong and he beat the sh*t out of me. Love, Maurice.' Albert, I have stacks of these back at my office!" - with credit to the late, great Mr. Show

#4: "No kidding, the seats at our new stadium can fit people this wide!"
