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.

BuccinGator
1) TSA to Australian soccer mascot.  "I'm sorry ma'am.  It's not good enough that you just have that thing unzipped.  No, we don't care that your kids are in there.  In fact, we'll have to search them, too."

Mister Peabody
#2.  "Oooh, someone dropped an M&M on the floor!  Oh wait, should I pick it up and eat it?  Would that be too gross?  Is it beneath me?  Will anyone notice me eating floor food?  It IS well past the 3 second rule after all.  Oh, but it is a nice looking Holiday M&M and those are too special to ignore.  Aw, screw it!  Oh tantalizing snack food I must have you!"

D2Moo
3.  Just another peaceful evening after an intense soccer match between two rivals.  Why was this a peaceful evening.  The local police could handle the crowd instead of having to use the nearby Army unit with their tanks and machine guns.

River_Rat
4. Being a family site, luckily the camera did not pan down as Doc Rivers was calling for a 3-1-1 zone defense.

WarpedMind
5.  Qatar offers a sneak preview of cooling systems for World Cup venues.


BuccinGator
So Why Did Qatar Win Hosting The 2022 FIFA World Cup?:

1) Promised mascots capable of hiding even bigger bribes complete with top-of-the-line security zipper.
2) Assured FIFA that unlike likely US host city Miami where people routinely leave the arena early, fans WILL stay for the whole game ...
3) ... Due to all the extra security that will be hired with what little leftover money there is.
4) Promised hotel accomodations could be made for the other 31 teams within a 4 country radius.
5) And finally, promised top of the line portable, air-conditioned individual shelters for FIFA voters to hide in.

2.  Erik tried to be like Phil Jackson on the bench.  He really tried.  It was hard to get into that Zen stuff though.  Here he was alone, with an opportunity to relax, contemplate his navel, and be calm.  Instead, all he could think about was his hands wrapped around LeBron's neck while he screamed something to the effect of why isn't James playing like he did in Cleveland.


Reads better now.

Hey guys.  Brutal day at work.  Not in a particularly humorous mood, but as always I'll try my best.

1) TSA to Australian soccer mascot.  "I'm sorry ma'am.  It's not good enough that you just have that thing unzipped.  No, we don't care that your kids are in there.  In fact, we'll have to search them, too."

2) After playing like they were invisible for half the season so far, Wade, Bosh, and LeDecision decide to just flat out be invisible.

3) Am I reading that right?  Somebody on the Blues has 12 goals?  That's in his career, right?

4) "You realize I have Shaq and Big Baby on this team, right?  31 bags of cotton candy!!!"

5) The WWE extends it's old "Get the 'F' out" campaign to newly acquired Cool Fridge spring water.

5) John McEnroe secretly taints the chair umpire's water.

1) One of the stranger National AIDS day celebrations was in Australia, where every man was urged to ride a bicycle with a high bar and a uncomfortable seat in an effort to get their junk to not work again, preventing the spread of AIDS sexually.

2) Coach Spo was eager to join his team during the timeouts, but petrified of LeBron bumping his shoulder again, he stays on the bench where he is safe.

3) Police are called in to calm down the crowd after an improbable 3 goal soccer game may well cause rioting, not due to a year's worth of action that this game making people wild, but due to the commonly-held belief in the Church of England that three goals in one soccer match may well be a sign of the Apocalypse.

4) During a 25 point blowout over the Nets, the Celtics quiz coach Rivers about NBA trivia to help the rest of the game go quickly. Here we see Doc getting right the question of "How many straight games have the Lakers lost?" with the answer 4.

5) Part of Qatar's bid to host the 2022 World Cup was human ice boxes to beat the 100+ degree heat. The other part was how all the empty seats will not use up all the oxygen that should be in short supply after global pollution makes most of the world near inhospitable. The major part, however, was the giant briefcases full of cash that voters received a dozen of before the vote.

1) Keeri a part of the infamous Aussie Biker Club: "The ROOS" hops her way around the areana as "Joey" catches a ride in her side car.

2) Armondo, scout for the Miami Heat, dreams of how his life would have been different if he had first swam to america and landed in california. Perhaps he could have worked for the Lakers instead.

3) The musical group "POLICE" are confused with crowd control officers during the Post Game Concert and fans Riot. 

4) "Ole Man River" shows the opposing coach how to "Read Between the Lines"

5) Japan's Tennis Pro, Ioke, has to spend 2 minutes in the penalty box after disputing the line judges call.
