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.

Feeling like dirt guys... can't promise I'll be in shape to post a contest tomorrow, but I'll do my best.


HALOS02
1.) Dungeons and Dragons Fantasy Camp - where nerds can live out their nerdiest fantasies.

River_Rat
2. Five....Five Rupee....Five Rupee Goat's Brain.

WarpedMind
3.  "On the 12th day of Ramadan our Mullahs gave to us, 12 stoning parties, 11 clerics lashing 10 guilty women, 9 rigged elections, 8 burning oil fields, 7 Somali pirates, 6 suicide bombers, five peeeeeaaaceful nuuuuukes, 4 beheaded lawyers, 3 hikers, 2 will stay in jail, and a partridge in a pear tree."

River_Rat
4. The Red Bull team had many instances where they should have know it was a bad idea to hire Marty Feldman's son to be crew chief.  Like the time he tried to bolt a tire onto the rear wing.

BuccinGator
5) Looks like some mad scientist took three things I can't stand, Smurfs, Calgary Flames fans, and mimes, and mixed them together into something I just really want to beat the crap out of.



Mr. Mo-Chi
I learned something new today!!

1) If 'passing the torch' is an idiom for relinquishing the top spot to the next in line, then I guess 'passing the axe' means back off, a$$hole.

2) I realize, and accept, that people in India practice a different faith and have different ideals than us. But, since when did Janet Reno jump on their bandwagon?

3) I knew that in certain cultures, like Turkey, women wear headdresses. But, I never knew that the women used that to start the Bald Bull Fan Club!

4) We all know that Red Bull gives you wiiiiings, but, they left out the part about giving you eyes that make you look bat $hit crazy!

5) I've heard of politcians 'draping themselves in the American flag' to obtain votes, but, 'draping yourself in a burning flag' is just psychotic.

5.) Ronny and Jack flash the old #1 not to show support of their favorite squad, but in answer to the question: How many days does it take to get the dye out of your hair and the face paint washed off?

2.) After handily defending his crown as Pakistani Bass Master, Abdoullah shows the crowd the approximate size of his biggest catch. Janet Reno was on hand as a "celebrity" judge.

2.) "If you're forbidden from showing outward happiness, gently press your hands together - if you're forbidden from showing outward happiness, gently press your hands together..." (sung to the tune of If You're Happy and You Know It, Clap Your Hands)
