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.

5:  Wait...what?  What's this?  I'm still on cbssports?  I thought for a minute I had somehow ended up on POWM.com

4:  The Iraqi women's professional football league is still having trouble catching on in the mainstream.

3:  Somewhere in the world there is a very angry, very bald and very hung over Troy Polamanu.

2:  Goldgas and silver stach

1:  There are two lessons to be learned here.  First is that the traditional head gear worn by Muslim men is actually a small prayer sheet, carefully wrapped and carried with them at all times.  Therefore the 'correct' slang term for Muslim men is not 'rag head', but 'little sheet head'.  Second is this - if you find you have lost that little sheet, do not try to replace it with a bed sheet off the $5 rack of Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

The color red stands for:

1.  Embarasment when Phil found out he wasn't getting his picture with a young arab sheik.  He was actually an air filter salesman named Pedro Rodriguez from Tampa.  Honest mistake anyone could make.

2.  The shirt color in his wardrobe that goes best with the slver 'stache.

3.  Being caught red handed with an old Alexi Lalas wig dyed black to match the prank victims natural hair color.

4.  The color she'll beat you if she catches you dissing the prophet or rejecting her advances in a small room.

5.  Losses.  You'll be in the red financially for sure when you have business dealings with the Don of boxing.

1) How odd that Lefty would don a keffiyeh, considering his man-boobs are considered part of the decadent Western ideals railed against by militant Islam.

2) It's nice to see the walrus finally reaching the "loneliness" stage of grief over the loss of his beloved bucket.

3) Here we see the first prize winner of the "What would it look like if Evil Spock had sex with the band Rage Against the Machine" contest.

4) After seeing this picture, I realized: In a weird way, every day in a Muslim nation is really kind of like a masquerade ball

5) Don King is really going the extra length to promote his new version of the board game Risk, where all battles are rigged and the promoter of each war always is the real winner.

2011 Caption Challenger Resolutions:

1) I, kmvenne, do hearby resolve to use my considerable influence as "the champ" to hobnob with B list celebrities and athletes.

2) I, BuccinGator, do hearby resolve to stop biting off my fingernails and shave that ridiculous 'stache in hopes of finally attracting Danica Patrick.

3) I, ktopp24, do hearby resolve to find an entirely new fetish, because Turkish Oil Wrestling is SO 2009.

4) I, D2Moo, do hearby resolve to not be the challenge's resident curmudgeon.

5) And finally, I, theriverrock, do hearby resolve to live the "Only In America"n dream to come out of retirement and run away with the title in the month of January, ensuring that all multiple title holders have at least 3.

5) ... and only at Wal-Mart would you blend in with those clothes, Don.

Crud, I'm having a hard time coming up with an idea for a theme post.

3) #22 became the first international soccer handball player to come out of the closet today as he was seen eating the parasites out of his mates hair.

I'm so embarrassed.  How did I not spot that.

1) The young prince and Phil have a couple things in common.  Both are very rich, and yet will never be the king.

1) AP wire report, Yemen, 10:27 am: "In an absolutely stunning move, golfing pro Phil Mickelson announced today that he was joining Al Qaida to start his own personal jihad against that western devil Tiger Woods and his sinful womanizing ways."

2) Yummm, nose candy.

3) #22 became the first international soccer player to come out of the closet today as he was seen eating the parasites out of his mates hair.

4) Masquerade balls in Saudi Arabia just aren't as cool as those over here in the states.

5) In honor of the 150th aniversary of the Civil War, Don King announces his own personal seccesion from the union to form the tiny independant nation of "Kingland," and the new heavyweight champion of the world for which it stands.
