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.

Photo Caption Challenge: Yogi meets Melo

1.   Yogi figured Ranger Smith would be so tied up in getting 'Melo's autograph that he would have plenty of time to liberate the local convience store of its goodies.  Yes, Yogi did fancy himself as smarter than the average bear.  Unfortunately he wasn't smarter than most of the crooks on Tru-Tv's Worlds Dumbest Criminals.

2.  In an attempt to change his image, Jimmy Johnson puts on a Mexicanized fake 'stache, grabs a sombrero, some ammo belts, and an assult rifle and then tells the rest of NASCAR to just try to take the championship from him in 2011.  JJ ups the whole boys have at it thing to a new level by doing that.

3.  Cliff Lee agrees with W.C. Fields that on the whole, he really would rather be in Philadelphia.  He only has 120 Million plus reasons to think that.

4.  This ad could only mean one thing, a sequel to Whale Rider is coming out next year.

4.  In New Zealand, it doesn't matter what came first, the chicken or the egg.  All that matters is there's one huge frying pan that will accomate either easily for a meal.

5.  Signing Jason Werth was perfect for all the Beltway Punsters in the media.  The contract was Werth a lot of money.  If he gets injured, will the Nats be Werthless for awhile?  Is Jason Werthy of his contract?  When he goes on a hot streak, will fans bow down and proclaim that they're not Werthy?  It will be an interesting 2011 baseball season in D.C.  Definitely one Werth watching.

5) "Could switching to the Nationals really earn you 15% or more on your next contract?  Did the little Werth laugh all the way to the bank?"
"Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!  Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho!!!  Tee hee hee hee hee hee hee hee!!!! Wah ha ha ha ha..."
"Jayson!"
"...ha ha ha!!!"
"JAYSON!!!!  We're here."
"Oh, thanks Mrs. A."
"yeah"

Photo Caption Challenge: Yogi meets Melo

1.  Yogi only agreed to be voiced by Dan Aykroyd on the promise of reiceiving a fully functional Bass-O-Matic and the services of an ignorant Sl&t named Jane.

2. Many people were entirely grossed out when they saw what Ben Stiller was using for Moustache wax.

3. Oh and by the way Cliff, if you choke as badly as you did in the series, we will go Ben Franklin on you with a key in your jock during a thunderstorm.

4. Since moving her show to Austrailia, Oprah Winfrey has her birth control pills airlifted into Sydney.

5. Sorry Jayson, but you'll get use to it, John Kruk tends to still wipe his azz with free agent jerseys.

1) So where as in Cincinnati, you have Chad Ochocinco as Robin to T.O.'s Batman, in New Jersey you'll have Melo as Boo-Boo to Devin Harris' Yogi?

1) Melo at the press conference, "If you ask me anything I don't know, I won't answer." "Psst, Melo."  "Yeah."  "Wrong Yogi."

2) It's not the fake moustache that makes that costume, it's the red, white, and green hair braid with the bow.

3) Cliff lets Wild Thing know that he specifically requested the team name be changed to "PhilLees" as part of leaving all that money on the table in N.Y.

4) So Sydney is Australia's version of New Jersey, the dumping grounds of its neighbors?

5) "How much worth is a Jayson Werth worth if a Jayson Werth was worth his worth?"

1) Sorry folks, I wasn't prepared to face this many members of the media, so you'll have to bear with me.

2) Looking to reach out to new cultures and demographics, the Village People introduce their newest member.... the Bandito!!

3) I give up, Cliff. How many organizations who don't know how to spend their money think they have a shot at signing you?

4) It's just like something that's 100% Pure Columbian, without the executions and political bribery.

5) Invest your money wisely, Werth. After the Nationals are done with you in 7 years, you'll be pooled in with that band of free agents that get stuck signing minor league contracts, or worse, with the Royals.

1) Carmelo Anthony uses Yogi Bear and his new animated/live-action hybrid movie to make a convoluted point about how he does not want to play for the new Jersey Nets because their supporting cast suck and are cartoonish, and also fits a "stop snitching" message in for old time's sake.

2) This extra's mustache may be falling off, but it's OK, not like anyone else from Season Two of Eastbound and Down gave a damn about good television either.

3) Cliff Lee gets one last reminder from his agent to pretend that he considered the Rangers really hard so he doesn't get any Texans with nothing to lose, aka Texans, into a violent rage.

4) In a recent study of US High School children, 100% New Zealand was 85% though to be just a part of Australia.

5) Werth 28? Well, why'd you give him 126 million over 7 years then? OH!
