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? :)

Wow... tough man. I thought I was a lock for #2 with my Lebron comment... Gotta respect Skinsink's effort, and again, I'd like to thank River_Rat for gracing us with his presence. You are a beacon of hope in an otherwise dark and pathetic world. Thank you Rat, thank you.

Welcome back kmvenne... near misses on two points today. You're No. 5 was a definitely a winner if Rat didn't put up that monster.

(Rat... wow, man.)

1)  "I can't explain how little I care about what you people think. Have I made that clear yet? If you're a man like me, you do things your way without worrying about detractors. For instance, I haven't had a clean shave since 1979. That's right, I was 10. Also, the only way you'll get me in a pair of Wranglers is to have Miley Cyrus put some on and invite me in. But Brett she's only 17 blah blah blah...don't care. Don't Care!  I like the smell of my own farts, and I carry around my own foreskin as a talisman that brings me luck. That's how I roll."

#2 - Being born without a body from the nipples down wasn't going to stop Marco from enjoying a wonderful afternoon in an alley on the south side of Chicago.

#3 - At the "One Hit Wonder" reunion concert, the crowd is required to wear signs depicting which band they are there to see and David was visibly upset when they ran out of Hanson signs and he had to wear a Nelson one.

4) Tired of raincoats, or carrying around accessories? Let me introduce you to my latest creation, the som-brella!!

5.  Brett Favre is actually in training for the Military.  He leaves for Afganistan the first week of October.  Because if anybody can overthrow the Taliban.................

More Buccin' Limericks:

1) There once was a QB in distress
    Who again ended up before the press
    As fans start to protest
    This now annual jest
    His legacy is becoming a mess

2) There once was a vampiric dude
    Who was in a jovial mood
    Until his mother ranted and raved
    That it was time he behaved
    He needing to stop playing in his food

3) There once was a man of the Field
    A heavy metal ball he would wield
    But under pressure to perform
    Illegal enhancers were the norm
    And to insanity his mind would yield

4) There once was a man with a huge hat
    Who south of the border was incredibly phat
    The chicas would all scream
    To be his esposa they'd dream
    Yup, Hector was well aware he was all that

5) There once was a man who would throw
    more passes than any other Joe
    His two big flaws it would seem
    Were completions to the other team
    And his absolute inability to let go

#3 - At the "One Hit Wonder" reunion concert, the crowd is required to wear signs depicting which band they are there to see and David was visibly upset when they ran out of Hanson signs and the closest they had was a Nelson one. Stupid Matthew and Gunnar.It was a post so nice, ktopp had to say it (many times) more than twice.
