Scores to come...

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.

Nice day, Peabody! Pretty solid day all around, actually. (Leave it to Brett Favre.)

Mister Peabody
1.  When Minnesota heard the Giants were coming to town with special guest Lawrence Taylor, the welcoming committee made sure he felt right at home with an appropriate amount of nose candy.

BuccinGator
2) Somehow I don't think I'll be seeing the Spongebob Squarepants live action movie when it hits theaters.

Mister Peabody
3.  With all these young players on the field, Old Man Favre has to be careful who he swats on the behind or risk the "pedophile" label.

kmvenne
4) Herm Edwards escape from a 1940's chain gang in a soapbox car built by two little children is quite possibly the worst idea for a movie that I have ever seen the stills from. I expect it will do record numbers.

Mister Peabody
5.  Brett works on his vetriloquist act by drinking a glass a water while operating his "puppet".

Another fine mess you got us into.........

1.  Hey Stanley, did you forget to plug in the air-thing that keeps the roof inflated.  Now look at this mess.  It will take us all month to fix it.

2.  Hey Ollie, don't look now but Lobsterman just got out of his cage and is headed toward the County Fair.  I bet I forgot to lock the clasp on the door.  I'm sorry Ollie I made a mess of things again.

3.  Stanley, did you give #7 the note form Brett on how to beat the Giants.
     Yes I did Ollie, and here it is.
     Stanley, you still have it you dummy and Eli our mortal enemy just beat us.  Thats another fine mess you got us into.

4.  Hey Ollie, are we in the car?
     No Stanley, we are not.
     Well, the car is leaving without us Ollie, and some guy in a balck and white uniform is driving it.
     And just how did that happen Stanley?  Did you leave the keys in it?
     Sorry Ollie (crying).  I always get is into a fine mess.  Now we have to walk home from Detroit.

5.  Ollie, why is our quarterback so sad?
     Because Stanley, his shoulder is hurt, he is not young, and it takes a long time to heal.
     Ollie, does he know he's about to take a drink from the coaches' spit cup.
     And how would you know Stanley?
     Because I gave it to him to hold so I could get him a drink Ollie.  Did I mess up again?

Very nice, Moo.  I extend to you this Laurel, and Hardy handshake.  Wonder how many of us are old enough to know what you were talking about (or me for that matter).  Well, let me go Blazing off upon my Saddle.

1.  Every once and awhile, Mother Nature likes to show some overpaid engineers who is really in command of the Earth.  At least it was just snow and not an earthquake.

2.  So it is true.  Lobsters are just underwater cockroaches.  This two legged one is headed straight for the table with the Ritz crackers on it.

3.  So, is don't ask, don't tell the rules in the NFL as well.

4.  Even today, the escapees from O Brother, Where Art Thou are still out stealing cars.

5.  Farewell Brett.  It didn't have to end this way you know.  Sometimes you play the game one season too long, and this was the one.

Top 5 Reasons The Vikings Season Wasn't As Successful As Planned:

Number 5: Your Q.B. is so old, he has to take Cialis just to get up for the game.

Number 4: Your offensive playcalling looks like this compared to even the Bucs' Ferrari.

Number 3: Even your post game interview with Pam Oliver is picked off by the other team.

Number 2: Your overall game plan is so dry, even the crabs carry canteens.

And finally, the number 1 reason the Viking's season wasn't as successful as planned: Mother Nature does a 100 times better job collapsing the pocket than your defensive line.

1) Come with me, my little chickadees, back to 1980 when this was being built (flashback music plays)...
"Hey Steve, you think we ought to install some sort of warming devices up here?"
"It's the middle of summer, Bob, why the hell would we do that?"
"You know, for when it snows."
"Nah, we'll be good."
"Well all right, then, but how about angling the roof some more, so, you know, the snow will fall off."
"Bob, this is Minneapolis, not the North Pole.  How much freaking snow do you think they'll get?!?"

2) Somehow I don't think I'll be seeing the Spongebob Squarepants live action movie when it hits theaters.

3) Eli was unaware of Brett's propensity to wear Wrangler "Open Fly" jeans and would later regret getting this close to the legedary quarterback.

4) What I want to know is what's magically keeping dude's helmet in place on his leg.

5) Chad Ochocinco wants to know why he gets fined for tweeting during games while the NFL allows THIS.

Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin lyrics, altered, not in order:

1) We play in the land of the ice and snow, at the Collapse-adome where the Vikings blow.

2) How soft your fields of green, can whisper tales of gore. Of how the crustaceans got into toxic sludge. We are your crab overloads.

3) Eli gonna make the playoffs, to sing and cry: First round exit I am coming!

4) On we drive with car made of ore. Our only goal is Mexico's western shore!

5) So now you better stop, and rebuild all your ruins. The Vikings season is now done because of all 4's losing.

1) Creating a hole in the Metrodome so that Oden can watch the team play, then blaming the collapse of the room on the trickster god Loki has many in the Minnesota area that the Vikings may be taking their nickname and the Norse mythology that accompanies it too literally.

2) I would have thought that Pokemon battle reenactments would have been cooler then this. And I did NOT have any expectations that the reenactment of Pokemon battles would be cool at all.

3) "Hey Eli, you play in New York, right? You ever see this chick, Jenn Sterger? She's fine, man. You tell her that old 4 inches says for her to call him for me, ok? I let your team play against T-Jax, it's the least you can do."

4) Herm Edwards escape from a 1940's chain gang in a soapbox car built by two little children is quite possibly the worst idea for a movie that I have ever seen the stills from. I expect it will do record numbers.

5) Brett Favre, now that's he's not a starting QB, enjoys doing the same things we all do in life. Here we see him discretely drinking Jack Daniels on the job and not paying any attention to his coworkers or boss.

3.  On the 12th day of Christmas the Vikings gave to us, 12 men on the field, 11 T-Jack passes for a 10 passer rating, 9 Percy migraines, 8 ugly losses, the 7th first round draft pick, 6 injured starters, fiiiiiiive freak-ing wins, 4 collapsing roofs, 3 retirements, 2 yards per carry, and a new football team in L.Aaaaaay.


to give props where it's due, about 3/4 of the lyrical credit for the above DJ Paul Allen at KFAN radio.

3. "Watch your back, Eli! You keep winning games, Peyton may get jealous! Hahaha... Seriously, though, what happened to Cooper again?"
