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.

#1 - BuccinGator

"And one of the first things I'll do as coach of the 49ers is that I know we have the Eagles on the schedule.  Hey, Mike Vick, it's shadow puppet theater!!!  Look, it's one of your losing dogs coming back to haunt you!!!  Ruff.    Ruff ruff."

#2 - Mister Peabody

One in a line of "pride" themed parades, 7-9 Pride was followed by, Gay Pride, Detroit Lions Pride, Salmonella Poisoning Pride, and Elvis Was Abducted By Aliens But We Still Believe He's Coming Back Pride.

#3 - River_Rat

Brad forgot to bring his ice auger so he could do some fishing.  But he figured his girlfriend's overbite would do the trick if he could just spin her fast enough.

#4 - River_Rat

In a display of total disrespect, Ian proves to Malcolm that he indeed was with his girlfriend last night.

#5 - theriverrock

As if placing a large, somewhat menacing, picture of himself atop the stadium wasn't enough, Khalifa Bin Zayed this week gave the home team even more incentive to not lose.  On Monday, Bin Zayed hired former WWF Champion the Iron Sheik to dole out punishment in the event of a loss.  If they're not victorious, the Sheik will first place each player in the Camel Clutch before eventually removing their shorts and "making them humble."   

** JOE POINT **

5. Coming this fall...

He committed the ultimate crime...  BUM BUMMM!

He was never caught... BUM BUMMM!

Now, 10 years later, an elite band of of soldiers must track him, find him... and kill him... BUM BUM BUMMMM!

Starring Sean Connery as Osama Bin Laden.

"Thashrite! I'm a bloody terrorisht!"

In the worst casted movie ever...

Muhammed, jihad

"I'm going to blow up the whole lot of you capitalisht pushies! Haha! Shuck it!"

Coming in September.

Theme - theriverrock

And the nominees for Best Actor in a leading role are...

1) Ben Affleck in "Hand Off."  From famed horror director Clive Barker, Affleck plays former Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, whose surgically re-attached right hand -- against Harbaugh's wishes -- calls all of the team's offensive plays, eventually leading Harbaugh to an Orange Bowl victory and a job as the 49ers new head coach.    

2) Jack Black in "Opposite's Day."  After a tragic goose hunting accident leaves him with a nasty bump on the head, a successful Seattle ad executive suddenly finds himself thinking that good is bad, and bad is good.  The scene in which he takes his wife to McDonald's on their 20th wedding anniversary is already considered an instant classic.    &am
p;nb
sp;   

3) Adam Lambert in "On Thin Ice."  The former American Idol star makes his film debut in this heartwarming tale of an Olympic figure skater who goes for the gold despite having a live human being growing out of his a$$.   

4) Brad Pitt in "A River Runs Throught It II."  In this sequel to Robert Redford's 1992 classic, Pitt plays a mentally ill man who mistakes his older brother for a rainbow trout.  

5) Robin Williams in "Extra Time."  Williams is at his wacky best in this madcap comedy about an American soccer coach hired to coach the Iranian national team.  The catch?  If they don't qualify for the World Cup, he and his entire team will be murdered.

1.  Forget the old football injury to his hand.  What reporters really wanted to know was if Harbaugh could do the old Vulcan finger split like Spock did.

2.  Even pride outscored my Chiefs last weekend.

4.  Playing rugby against the local school of dentisty has its advantages.  Not only is it great execise, but you also get a complete oral exam, cleaning, and then a free toothbrush after the game.  One other advantage, if you didn't like the tooth doc, you can clobber him with a vicious hit as long as you can catch him.

5.  Big Achmed is watching!  Got to admire players who play in a league where the motto Win or Die is not just a slogan but the way of life.

BUM BUMMM!

BUM BUMMM!

BUM BUM BUMMMM!



For a moment I thought this was going to be a comment on kmvenne's typical late month pushes, suicide bomber style, all while the Jaws music still plays, until I realized it was only the 10th.

(Nice Connery by the way).

What's really broken in these pictures?

1) The 49ers bank.

2) The hearts of Nawlins.

3) That bondage machine her kinky boyfriend bought on S&MBay.

4) The rubgy rulebook.

5) Everyone's free will.

1) Wow, you can tell Jim's made the big time with his professionally designed name plate made by one of the third graders over at Golden Gate Elementary.

1) Funny, getting $25 mil over 5 years, you'd figure it'd be Niners brass with the broken body parts.

2) But much to the lament of fans of the defending World champs, this guy will travel to Chicago next week with his 8-9 Pride sign.  Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!

3) Having all the bones surgically removed from her hip area led to Christy Hamilton being able to perform incredible feats of ice dancing, although she did have trouble staying upright as she awaited the judges scores and had to learn to read upsidedown.

4) Mama always said if I kept making these faces they'd stick this way, but she never said ANYTHING about the opponent doing it to me.

4) In the NCAA, there's the Heisman stiffarm.  In Austrailian Rugby, there's the Horstmann stiffbirdie.

5) And the 72 empty white chairs are symbolic of the virgins you will receive in heaven SHOULD YOU WIN.
