#1- When Mark Walters discovered a loophole in the rulebook, his patented "lay-on-the-basket" defense quickly made him the top defender in the league.
#2- The Lakers were mystified by the Celtics' decision to amputate the lower half of Rajon Rando's legs... something about "really trying to push the ball down low".
#3- "No, seriously, get it ready... I'm hungry, son!"
#4- Now that's how you give someone the "stink eye".
#5- OK, raise you hand if you own a mirror... Not so fast, green hat.

Are there any rules to this that I'm not aware of? I know we can't swear but can we not mention other websites or other networks in our captions?

Answers:

- No major rules... If it's funny, it's funny. I just won't choose anything that's full of swear words or very obscene... gotta keep my job, ya know.

- Ktopp, you've just missed on a bunch of these. You'll get yours, don't worry.

- My wife, Mrs. Joe, is the only one that helps me... and that's only every once in a while, when I really can't decide between two entries. It's like a tiebreaker.

-  I don't get anything extra for doing this, except the laughs and a good chance to interact with the users, which is good enough for me.

I hear ya...i'd be the same way...although I have to admit these things come to me rather quickly...often I have a hard time picking the "right" one...  Can't imagine at all, how annoying it must be to sift through 50+ captions in a day...so thanks much to Joe for all the work...i'm sure he gets nothing for it...

As for rules, I have no clue...kinda jumped into this last month and before that it seems like a small thing that grew and grew on its own.  Golden Rule sort of stuff, I try to be respectful of anyone who could be on the other end....could be children (sure seems like it with some of these captions), could be anything...other than that, sportsline has its own "blog rules" that would need to be observed by all of us and thats it. 

Light hearted, clever, witty whatever...thats what I try to be with each of mine ;)

ktopp....i fully expect ALL of mine to win every day...the ones I regard as my best rarely are the ones chosen...we are all at the mercy of Joe or whomever else he has helping him decide the winners... 

I understand Butta. I am not saying that your's aren't funny, they truly are and they deserve to win. And I am also not saying that mine are any more funny than yours. It's just kinda frustrating when you put alot of effort into this and get nothing to show for it. But Joe does have a ton of captions to choose from so it's gotta be a difficult decision.  Plus, this is all just for braggin' rights anyways, no prizes involved. We all love Joe for what he does. I wasn't complaining, just thinking out loud.

WTF Joe!!!

Are you and Strictly Butta neighbors or something?!?! Is he paying you off?? I'm starting to think this is a scam.

Are you the only one that picks the winners?

Alright another point! Haha and again another muse, the look of terror on his face is probably what my face looked my face during my driver's test...
