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) In a decidedly uncomfortable moment, as new Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke walked to the podium to meet with members of the local media, alumni in attendance sang a new variation of the school's fight song.

"You weren't our first choice Bra-dy!
Miles was the real Slim Sha-dy!
You were our sec-ond choice,
So we'll just live with thaaaaat!

Too bad that Miles re-jected!
We're fee-ling quite de-jected!
You were our sec-ond choice,
Our first choice heeeee stood pat!"

GUY IN RED JACKET: "Oh, believe me, I am."

3) For years now, many have accused former Georgetown coach John Thompson, Sr. of being the one who actually "pulls the strings."  Little did they know, he literally was pulling the strings from a catwalk above the Verizon Center court.

4.  "A three.  You just got the lowest score in the history of the slam dunk contest.  Can you tell the viewers how you feel?"

5) Judge Reinhold and Eddie Murphy know that Beverly Hills Cop IV isn't scheduled to be in theatres until 2014, but they are still working on some of the old gags to make sure they are ready when filming stars.

The Brady Meal Ticket Theme Song:

2) Here's the story of a lovely lady
    Who would please the crowds by dancing on a pole
    But due to a recent change of venue
    Her aparatus was now horizontal

1) Here's the story of a man named Brady
    Who was busy with 85 boys of his own
3) To whom which he would have to be a leader
    Even if their play would make him moan

4) Till the one day when the lady met this fellow
    And they knew that it was much more than a deal
5) Throw in a few million and a private vehicle
    And that's how you got the Brady Meal Ticket

    The Brady Meal Ticket
    The Brady Meal Ticket
    All of these things together are The Brady Meal Ticket

This is the Dali's "Fruit Salad Stairwell". It's an amazing work of art that, depending on the angle you look at, reveals 2 different pictures wrapped in 1.


From the bottom looking up you see the fruit. 


From the top looking down you see cottage cheese.

1. "So this is a football, eh? Bigger than I thought it would be."

"Nooo... This is a helmet. Footballs are smaller, brown and made of pigskin."

"Wow. Do we always wear helmets? Or only when the hurler is pitching to us? Sorry, I've never really watched before."

"It's OK. You'll still be better than the last guy."

Did Buccin really use a scene from UHF in one of his captions? He's lucky Weird Al can't afford the internet, or else he'd probably get sued for that.
Nah, he'd more likely sue me for accusing him of hanging out at Clippers games yesterday.  Hey, everybody, look what's back!

Did Buccin really use a scene from UHF in one of his captions? He's lucky Weird Al can't afford the internet, or else he'd probably get sued for that.

1) After exausting all human options, Michigan comes to the sad conclusion that the only way to win the "Legends" division next season (and ensure another loss to the SEC in a bowl game in the process) is to to promote their iconic helmet to the position of head coach.

2) Those stairs used to be the laughingstock of the arena for advertising yogurt, a product made by bacterial fermentation. But after this cheerleader gave that handrail herpes simplex 2, suddendly those steps don't seem so disguisting, do they?

3) John Thompson III just got the bad news. No, not that his team is fake and due to bomb during March Madness, but that his bookie is coming after the game to collect on that huge bet he put on the Cavaliers vs. the Lakers earlier in the week.

4) The D-League Showcase versioin of Deal or No Deal isn't nearly as exciting, with top prize being two tickets to watch the D-League, and bottom prize EIGHT tickets to watch the D-League.

5) Judge Reinhold and Eddie Murphy know that Beverly Hills Cop IV isn't scheduled to be in theatres until 2014, but they are still working on some of the old gags to make sure they are ready when filming stars.
