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.

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.

#3 - It's impossible to move John when he falls asleep during the game. They either have to wait for him to get hit with the ball or until he gets called for a technical for being on the court.

#3 - You remember those plastic toys where there was a person standing on a platform and when you pressed the button on the bottom, the person would collapse like he just had all the bones removed from his body? Then when you let go of the button, the person would pop back up? Yeah, John Thompson is one of those.

1.  Excuse me, but would someone please tell Spartans coach Mark Dantonio to please quit playing the Darth Vader entrance music.

2. With prostitution legal in Las Vegas, the girls take to the stands much like the beer vendors to sell their services.

3. QUICK!!  Somebody go back to the locker room and get the key so we can wind the coach back up!

4. Yes Mr. Johnson, that was very loud.  But I asked you if you had the HEART of a champion.

5. Ned thought it was a pretty strange rule, but all riders were required to race with a banana hanging out of their mouth at the Clay Aiken Supercross.

1) It was all well and good until that fateful day hackers changed the University Of Michigan website to one of smurf porn.

1) Somehow, "Once you go blue, you'll forget what to do," just doesn't carry the same kind of appeal as it's kin.

5) Nothing says "real man" quite like 900 ft/pounds of Red Bull sponsored torque between your legs and a banana hanging out of your mouth.

4) "Now you can keep your all expense paid trip to the D-League All Star game, or you can trade it for what Stacy has in box number 3.  What's it going to be?"
Crowd: The box, the trip, the box, the box, the trip!
"I'll take the box."
"You took the box.  Let's see what's in the box!!!"
Stacy opens it and it has a Deal or No Deal style panel with "Nothing"
"Nothing!!!  Absolutely Nothing!!!!!!!  Stooooooooopid!!!!  You so stooooooooooopid!!!!!!"

2) I've heard that pole dancing is supposed to be one of the latest workout crazes for women, but handrail dancing???
