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.

Glad to know I can still swing the hattrick from time to time, especially after the zero point start to the week.

Nice to see a few new faces in the mix... :)

BuccinGator
1) "Okay, you got me, Wade, Bosh, ... damn.  Okay, me, Wade, Bosh, ... damnit.  Something just seems to be missing here.  I just can't win!!!"

BuccinGator
2) Upon seeing this sign, Stan Kroenke and Pat Bowlen swing an epic trade sending disgruntled Carmelo Anthony to the Broncos for Tim Tebow.

bluenosecanuck
3:  And that ended the short-lived Viagra sponsership of the NBA.

kmvenne
4) Somehow, some truths seem even more damning when you type them in all lower case. Like, "the redskins are terrible." Or "ktopp loves turkish oil wrestling". Yes, I found a way to bash ktopp on this picture. I have amazing segue powers.


River_Rat
5. There is a whistle on the play...looks like Lebron dribbled the gravy a little.....NO he Double Dribbled the gravy, another turnover by the Heat.

Buccy Wonka Candies:

1) Spending Sprees
2) The Everlasting One   Godstoppers
3) Protect the Runts

The five things I'll miss seeing on live TV........

1.  The Game Show Channel televising the $50,000 a game Connect 4 championships from LeBron's basement.  Wait, there are no basements in Miami are there?

2.  God striking Kobe with a big old bolt of lightning as he drives for a game tying layup late in the 4th Qtr.  Fortunately SportsCenter will show the replay over and over again until I wrestle the remote away from the Mrs. watching HGTV and flip the channel.

3.  LeBron telling the world during the game he's hungry and called time out to grab some nuts.

4.  Eagles fans being nice to the opponents.  Well, nice for Eagles fans anyway.  Heck give 'em a $50 and they'll complain it isn't near enough to bail themselves out of jail.

5.  The Food Network NBA Millionaires Care special.  Feeding the homeless is nice, but how about giving the guy a job in an entourage or something.  Yeah, can't help to be a skeptic on that one.

5.  Matt Lauer looks in horror as Le Bron scoops food off of homeless peoples' plates.  In his defense James just said. "It's about ******* time someone dished out someting to me in this town."

1) I wish I could connect 4.  That is- pass the ball to someone besides myself, Dwyane, or Chris.

2) Of course, Kobe took immediate offense to the sign and had the fan escorted off the court.

3) Dwyane! I think I found something down there!!

4) the redskins will have less points at the end of the regulated 4 quarters. yeah, that's right. you heard me.

5) Shit! I hope that's not Mike Brown. No eye contact, LeBron, no eye contact.

Thanks skins, I liked it when I posted it.  Think Rat might have trumped me, though.

1) Nobody dare crtiisize LeBron for not taking the winning move one row over to our left/his right, for fear of giving LeBron more fuel to make another 90 second lame commerical about all the haters.

2) Actually, not even God can stop Kobe. Kobe would just buy God a 2 million dollar ring and all would be forgiven.

3) CHRIS BOSH, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING RIGHT HERE? WHY CAN'T YOU REBOUND THE BASKETBALL THEN?

4) Somehow, some truths seem even more damning when you type them in all lower case. Like, "the redskins are terrible." Or "ktopp loves turkish oil wrestling". Yes, I found a way to bash ktopp on this picture. I have amazing segue powers.

5) Afraid of any possible people from Cleveland showing up, the food kitched decided to keep LeBron far away from the turkey and the carving knife that comes with it. A wise call.

3) There are seriously side-effects when you get in bed with the devil (Jim Grey). Lebron is clearly feeling the Heat.
