October Scoreboard
No scores yet.

Previous Winners: kmvenne (8), River_Rat (6), 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.

Boo!!!!!!  Any day Rat and I don't score is a bad day.  Still, nice to see Moo, Warpy, and EMAT get in the mix (you, too Mo-Chi, although you've been scoring pretty regularly).  I have all kinds of time to start my new streak that so tragically ended last month, sniff sniff Cry.

Nice start for kmvenne with the double. But it's early, Buc has plenty of time to get back into 2nd place. And by the way, I'm baking up a whole batch of "Awesome Pie" if anybody wants some.

#1 - D2Moo

No matter where they went, the Elway family always stood out, even in a large crowd.

#2 - kmvenne

The "Can't Beat Saban" sign was always good for a conversation starter, as a fellow Alabama fan is bound to mention how Bear Bryant could beat Saban, and then the two Tide fans have a good 4 hour conversation about their favorite topic, how great college football was back when the Bear was around and the negro was not allowed to play. PS> Bama fans are racist.

#3 - EagleMtnAirtax

Baseball, on the other hand, never worried about Don't Ask Don't Tell.

#4 - Mr. Mo-Chi

After the latest court ruling, inmates in all female prison's have been granted work-release programs as well!!

#5 - WarpedMind

Michelle Wie's diet really goes south after LPGA season ends.

Theme - kmvenne

How did Rat win in September?

1) Took Joe to the horse track, convinced him to bet on the horses with people bodies in the stands, then gave him a loan with the September title as interest due after Joe went broke.

2) Changed his name to Saban, used this sign and proof he cannot be beat, and the standings were changed to their only logical state. kmvenne plans to counter by changing his name to "The NFL", which clearly can and did beat Saban constantly.

3) Rode the coattails of better players to fame and glory, a move known as "the Jeter" since 1996.

4) Made ktopp a pie filled with cheese and a slim jim crust, which in Wisconsin is known as "Awesome Pie".

5) Was told if he slept with this woman, he'd win. And hell, who could deny him the title if he wanted it that badly?

October scoreboard (a.k.a. - Joe's 1st November scoreboard)

1. kmvenne - 2
2. D2Moo - 1
2. EagleMtnAirtax - 1
2. Mr. Mo-Chi - 1
2. WarprdMind - 1

 I'm angry and going to take it out on...well....probably ktopp, he's good for points at his expense always

Mental notes to myself....

- Make sure kmvenne gets no points on Mondays and Wednesdays (CHECK!)

- Everyday, make sure to say the NBA sucks and is nothing but a bunch on whiney babies named LeBron. (CHECK!)

- If anybody makes fun of kmvenne in a caption, it automatically wins. Even if I have to give out 28 points per day. (CHECK!)

- Make fun of anybody named Keith starting today. (CHECK!)

- Remind kmvenne everyday that Virginia has no professional sports teams of any capacity so they have to borrow from a neighboring state and that Pulaski sounds like "Pull my ass on a ski". (CHECK!)

Congrats on the win last month, Rat. I'm going full steam for October, fair warning. I'm not comfortable with a 2 month lead in the all time standings, and I was excited about winning title ten during 10/10. I'm angry and going to take it out on...well....probably ktopp, he's good for points at his expense always.

Thanks Kmvenne. 

5) Was told if he slept with this woman, he'd win. And hell, who could deny him the title if he wanted it that badly?

What's the term I'm looking for.....not even with Ktopp's ........  LOL

1) Sex and the City just isn't the same since Sarah Jessica-Parker replaced the cast with all her sisters.

2) The "Can't Beat Saban" sign was always good for a conversation starter, as a fellow Alabama fan is bound to mention how Bear Bryant could beat Saban, and then the two Tide fans have a good 4 hour conversation about their favorite topic, how great college football was back when the Bear was around and the negro was not allowed to play. PS> Bama fans are racist.

3) Jeter: "Jesus, A-Rod, you're bleeding from the butt again! Can't you be more discrete with your rampant PED usage and put a band-aid on the needle wound?"

4) Judging by the mullet's and the overweight nature of this group, I'm going to guess their favorite flavor of pie is "poontang".

5) Miss Wisconsin had her title stripped from her after revealing and assumed-to-be-sexy-to-somebody pictures of her were found on the internet.

1.  Joe knew he had the best horse helmet.  He just stood back and watched the Smith brothers act a fool as he played the wall.  Joe's friends call him Joe Cool ....cooler than a polar bear's toenail.

2.  Matt is a "Lord of the Rings" fanatic.  Everywhere he goes he brings his banner depicting the "all seeing eye" of the evil master.  As Matt's friend, I just don't have the heart to tell him that the spelling of the evil lord is "SAURON," not "SABAN."  What do I do here?  Do you all have any suggestions?  You know what, screw it.  He should've been doing his spelling homework.  That's his bad, not mine.  Thanks guys, I think I just answered my own question.  You guys are great!

3.  Jeter will no longer be doing the Gillette commercials after this picture hits the media. 

4.  The "Overweight and Proud" parade took the streets today and I've gotta be honest....I've never seen someone so overweight and proud.  You go Tina!

5.  You could tell by the determination in Phat Dung's eyes.....this was going to be the biggest "deuce" ever!

The reasons why these pictures were picked.

1.  How Joe and ktopp really see all the posters on Sportsline.  This is an improvement though.  Usually they see us as the other end of the horse.

2.  This one got picked just because they could use it as another shameless plug for CBS.  Plus the higher ups at CBS made them do it.

3.  Ktopp's wife liked this picture.  It turned her on more than an order of fried cheese curds.

4.  Joe was just hungry for his fall favorite, pumpkin pie and figured why not.  He thought the two gals and some pie would be good covered with whipped cream.

5.  Because she threatened to squeeze the life out of anyone who refused to put her picture in the contest today.

My, how the Tide has turned

1) Because of movies and literature, we've been worried about being overruled by a planet of apes. So, when the horses starting dominating the culture, it caught everyone by surprise.

2) Have to give it up to the Crimson Tide. A decade ago, it was tornados that rolled through Alabama, destroying everythig in its path. Now, it's Alabama rolling wherever they go, destrying everything in its path!!

3) Well, in a society obsessed with getting in shape, and tolerance and equality for all, the phrase "anything more than a handfull is a waste" applies to a different, more 'gender universal' part of the anatomy now.

4) After the latest court ruling, inmates in all female prison's have been granted work-release programs as well!!

5) Japanese women decided to take their liberation by force. "Now, you'll love me loooong time!!"
