(Usually) Everyday I'll throw out a photo from the AP or one of the bigger sites and you provide the caption. Hilarity ensues. I'm also adding a handful of links at the bottom of the page that you should check out each day.

Are you funny enough to create a caption for this photo of the Minutemen looking on as Matt Cassel prepares to come in for an injured Tom Brady?

OK guys, let's grab that bucket behind us and take it onto the field. The Pats' Super Bowl chances need something to kick.

Last time Matt Cassel started a game, everyone dressed like this.

And the militia assembled for the assault on Bernard Pollard.

Sarge, what's going on?

Listen kid, Brady hurt his foot. They're bringing in a replacement.

So why didn't I get a replacement last winter when my foot turned all black from frostbite? That Brady sure is a wuss.

The Minutemen were stopped at the last moment from demostrating on Tom Brady what you would do to a horse with a leg injury.

I thought Boston had the smartest fans in the universe. Why in the world would the JumboTron have to reminded Pats Nation to shut up while their offense has the ball? F*** you, Simmons!

Brady's out? OK, everyone in a circle, and aim at the person directly across from you. On the count of three. One...two...

Tom Brady's injury sets the Patriots offense back hundreds of years.

Arlen Specter's committee has determined that Brady's injury actually came from the second tackler, who hid in the grassy knoll.

Everyone thought that the real-life mascots were very authentic, if not for the Sony hand-held cameras taped to the end of their muskets.

All I know is that said something about not being able to find anyone with any confidence in Matt Cassell who was still alive.

The Minutemen are sporting the uniforms that Matt Cassel wore the last time he played in a football game.


This isn't in anyway related to the caption, but how many times will we hear the pathetically funny "Harold and Kumar go to Matt Cassel" pun, the equally pathetically funny "Matt 'Harold and Kumar go to White' Cassel", and the other equally pathetetically funny "Matt 'White' Cassel?

"All this time worrying about the British, and we get taken out by a Chief."

Curse, schmerse, when we were on the helmet, they drafted Tony Eason, didn't they? What's that? Oh. Well, 1983 was probably a thin year for drafting quarterbacks anyway.

Matt Cassel?!?
You sure these have blanks in them?

For Boston, it was exactly like the day Paul Reviere warned "The British are coming!". Except the complete opposite.

Somehow these outfits look a lot more ridiculous when we have no shot at the Super Bowl.

Mal said...

OK, guys...put these costumes back in the closet until Draft Day. They'll look really sharp sitting in New York watching the Pats take the first overall pick.

One Minuteman to another: "So, the NFL thinks it's found all of our secret sideline cameras? Little do they know that our band of rebels have been taping teams for years. Screw you, Matt Walsh!"

Shortly after the game, Bill Bellicheck listed the Revolutionary War militias from New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine as "doubtful" on his injury report for week 2.

Randy Moss to Wes Welker on the sideline: "What do you mean that these guys are our 'special guests' today? Didn't you see that hot gymastics chick that visited the Red Sox dugout? Not fair, homey. Not fair."
