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: The Empire Strikes Back

Mister Peabody
1.  In a special release DVD, this cutting room floor edit is finally shown where Han Solo's distant cousin Guitar Solo rescues Chewbacca's Southside of the Galaxy half cousin Leroy-bacca.

Jedi Trainer
2. Harold's definition of a rodeo clown is a bit askew.

BuccinGator
3) "Holy Crap.  I can't believe this!!  Tom Brady, can I have your autograph???"

River_Rat
4. Darth Vader thought he had finally tracked down Chewbacca, but it ends up that it was just Bill Laimbeer.

BuccinGator
5) And on the backside of the sign ...

Star Wars
Episode VII
The Caption Contest

1. Failing to be victorious in the Galactic Civil War, Vadar finds himself trying to take over Oz, and finds his newest, biggest challenge in the Cowardly Lion and the Witch's flying monkeys.

2. Meanwhile, the Emperor has retired to the rural midwest to be a dairy farmer.  Happy Cows come from California.  Cows strong in the dark side of the force come from Wiscosnin.

3. Spike Lee, getting the movie rights to Star Wars Episode VII, recruiting new talent to play his Luke Skywalker.  He however must first teach Justin how to do manly things, so he takes him to a sporting event, dresses him in leather.  Justin still hasn't grasped the concept as is shown here with his purple glasses.

4. Obi Wan and Vadar are prime reffing material.  Sensing disturbances right before every foul makes them much easier to call.

5. Yes, my Star Wars story was terrible.  But at least it wasn't one of the prequels.  On the left side of that sign we see George Lucas.  On the right we see what he did to the Star Wars universe using Jar Jar Binx.

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 whenever the judge feels like getting around to scoring, typically before the end of the next day's competition.
Think we need an addendum to the rules, Joe.

Photo Caption Challenge: The Empire Strikes Back

1.  After his Tie-Fighter enters a mysterious black hole, Darth Vader lands in the most cruel and frightening spot in the entire universe; The Land of Misfit Mascots.  I wonder if his light saber is a match for a t-shirt/hot dog cannon?

2.  An elderly D2Moo finds a perfect resting spot in his ancestral home, Moohenge, U.K.

3.  Justin Bieber laughs when he utters the magic words that makes Spike feel about 100 years old:  "Who the hell is Mars Blackmon?", Justin asks as he calls him Mr. Lee.

4.  After some of the rough play in the NBA recently, the league hires some out of town muscle to help the refs control the players better.

4.  NBA refs are taking their powers just a bit too seriously these days aren't they?

5.  Oh ~ oops my @$$.  Sorry, oh ~ oops her @$$.  That's a position strictly done on purpose, no accidents there.

By the way, Joe, you realize now that you've set yourself up to let all of geekdom down if tomorrow's theme isn't Return Of The Jedi.
