Create The Caption #315

Friday, November 21, 2008

(Usually) Everyday I'll throw out a photo, you provide the caption, and then hilarity ensues. I'm also adding a handful of links at the bottom of the page that you should check out each day.

Yesterday's Winners....


"TIES? TIES? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? TIES??!? I JUST HOPE WE CAN WIN A GAME!"- David B.

"Let's see, what can I say that would take people's attention away from the fact that we can't beat the freaking Bengals?"- Anon

McNabb: "I didn't even know that games in the NFL could end in a tie.
Reporter in the background: "What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
- JFein

"I don't feel different. I mean, take yesterday for example. We were out at the Olive Garden for dinner, which was lovely. And uh, I happen to look over at a certain point during the meal and see a waitress taking an order, and I found myself wondering what color her underpants might be. Her panties. Uh, odds are they are probably basic white, cotton, underpants. But I sort of think well maybe they're silk panties, maybe it's a thong. Maybe it's something really cool that I don't even know about. You know, and uh, and I started feeling... what? what I thought we were in the trust tree in the nest, were we not?"- Kelly

"Tied? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it tied when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!"- Walnuts

And your winner of a copy of EA's NCAA '09 is (drumroll)........

"We sittin' in here and I supposed to be the franchise player and we in here talkin' bout knowin' the rules. I'm mean, listen, we talkin' bout a tie. Not a win, not a loss, we talkin' bout a tie. Not a game, not a game that I go out an die for and play every game like its my last. Not a win, we talkin' bout a tie, man. I mean, how silly is that? We talkin' bout knowin' the rules. I know I'm supposed to lead by example. I know that. I'm not shoving it aside, ya know, like it don't mean anything. I know it's important. I do, I honestly do, but we takin' bout knowin' the rules, man. What are we talkin bout? The rules? We talkin' bout knowin' the rules, man. We talkin bout knowin' the rules. We talkin' bout knowing the rules. We ain't talkin bout the game. We talkin' bout knowin' the rules, man. When you come into the stadium and you see me play. You see me play, don't you? You see me givin' everything I got, right? We talkin' bout knowing the rules right now. We talkin' bout knowin' the rules. Man, look, I hear you. It's funny to me too. It's strange to me too, but we talkin' bout knowin' the rules, man. We not even talkin' bout the game, the actually game, when it matters. We talkin' bout knowing the rules. How the hell can I make my teammates better by knowing the rules?"- Mike

Man that was a tough one. Anon gets a +1 for using the phrase "scrotumy chin", but in the end, Mike gets the win for not only going the "practice" route, but for transcribing the whole damn speech! One more try people and I think we've got a great one to close out the week. I'll put the winner up tomorrow morning before the Pammies, and thanks for the laughs.
_______________________________________

Okay folks it's time! We're raising the stakes, and for this week and this week only, you will be playing for a copy of EA Sports' NCAA 2009. The rules are simple....you have to submit your caption with a registered blogger profile, have an email address linked within said profile, and you have to be funnier than everyone else (sorry Anons, you won't win if you don't register). If all of the above holds true, I'll get your information, and EA will send you the game on either PS3 or XBOX in the next week or so. It's that easy!

NCAA Basketball '09 (EA Sports)

Are you funny enough to create a caption for this photo of Bud Selig looking away during a news conference as Hal Steinbrenner is interviewed?

Bud Selig: I just think, like, he hates me. I really think he wants to kill me.

Hank Steinbrenner: He doesn't really want to kill you. Sometimes we just say that.

Bud Selig: No actually the boy is quite astute. I really am trying to kill him, but so far unsuccessfully. He's quite wily, like his old man.

"I hope someone sees this picture of me looking annoyed and attaches a slightly appropriate quote from a television show or film that is popular enough for a select, elite few people to recognize it, but not so popular that it implies that the author of such caption is some American-Idol-watching Philistine. Maybe something like 'Damn if feels good to be a gangsta.' Office Space? Anybody?"

Tradition - check. Hank Aaron - check. Diversity - check. Labor peace - check. Golden era of baseball - check.

How about subtext? Threaten to move teams unless they get a free stadium - check. Distance myself from collusion - check. Make it seem like there is a chance in hell Cuban will get the Cubs - check. Avoid directly thanking Hal and the Yankees for economically supporting every shittily run team - check.

Man, I like that stuff, it's pretty good, but then they come out with this Chex Mix with chocolate pretzels in it, I don't like that stuff that much, at all. Maybe I'll go over and get some of that, maybe it's that spicy pub mix with the little breasticks, mmm, I love that stuff too.

What the hell AA, my version of the AI rant was better and you know it. I will give Mike credit that he had it posted before me, but to my credit I didn't know that he had used the same "practice" speech as his entry. That being said, mine was better and you shouldn't let my past activity on this site cloud your judgment. I'll be expecting my game in the mail.

So I jump ship on Hong Kong, and I make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over there in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one--big hitter, the Lama--long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish eighteen and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

I was looking forward to getting the opportunity to get out there and try to drive to win the game. But unfortunately, with the rules, we settled with a tie."

Because it's fihring my body with rage

I'm the smartest most crever most physicarry fit
But nobody else seems to rearize it
When I change the world maybe they'll notice me
But until then I'rr just be ronery

Oh no, be strong Budders, be strong, don't start crying in front of Hal... there, I think it's gone... nope, it still hurts, dammit Budders, you're better than this, come on... big girls don't cry... ok, ok, I'm good. All right, where was I? Oh right, Mussina... oh no, dammit Budders, you're The Commish! You're better than this! Get it together, remember what you said when you became Commish, "I, Bud 'Budders' Selig, do solemnly swear to pledge my soul to the dark lord Satan, whom I shall refer to as Mr. Steinbrenner, whether he reveal himself as George, Hank, or Hal...

Reporter: What do you think of the job that Selig has done as Commissioner of baseball?

Steinbrenner: I think that douchebag has done an awful job. He has made it more and more harder for the Greatest Team Ever to win the World Series. Interleague play? We don't have time to be bothered with The League No One Cares About. The Wildcard? That has no purpose other than to let some lucky, undeserving team with momentum to upset our Greatness. It's totally unfair and unethical. We're better than them. The World Baseball Classic? Because it's always a good idea to have star players play in games and get tired out before the season even begins. Words can't describe how much that self-absorbed, egomaniacal bastard has forever hurt The Greatness That Is The New York Yankees. We are the only team that people care about and we should be treated as such!

Selig: George Steinbrenner? Bud Selig here. I want to talk about Hal Steinbrenner. I understand he's been dividing his time between The MLB and The Yankees. I cannot have that.

George Steinbrenner: Well I don't know who he is but if you want him that bad I'm not giving him up that easily.

Selig: Oh is that so. Playing a little hardball huh Jonnyboy?

George Steinbrenner: How about this. You give me Hal, I convert your concessions to all chicken no charge. Instead of hot dogs, chicken dogs. Instead of pretzels, chicken twists. Instead of beer, alcoholic chicken.

Selig: How do you make that alcoholic chicken?

George steinbrenner: Let if ferment, just like everything else.

Selig: That stuff sounds great. All right. I'll have Costanza on the next bus.

Selig (thinking): "I've dealt with a lot of bullshit, but nothing was worse than fighting The Giant Chicken. It was supposed to be dead now--
Ho. Ly. SHIT!"

You see what I did there? That was underwear. I'll show you the bathing suit one next. You see the difference?

Selig wonders if making the losing team give him a foot massage would further spice up the All-Star game.

So you say that guy over there is our commissioner? Damn, I don't think he's qualified to be the commissioner of the More Taste League.

I'm getting sick of this. I'd like to get a job working with people that are more honest, less self-serving and agenda-driven, and know when to shut their mouths - you know, a job like selling cars or something.

Bud's brain: "Ties... I like pants...Can I still spell Milwaukee?.. Ties... Lord, that Fran Drescher's a hot number... Tied... Rain... Where am I?"

Hal: "... and boom goes the dynamite."

Bud: "Hmm.....I really should build the MLB Network around Pam Ward. She is always prepared to the max, knows her balls and strikes inside and out and sets up her analyst partners beautifully."

Hal: "Madonna gets her own private box at New Yankee Stadium and three parking passes. She's also promised to leave A-Rod and any other Major League executives front row tickets to any of her shows worldwide."
Selig (thinking): "There better be a Milwaukee show coming up. She's my favorite.

Dealing with another Steinbrenner...It hurts...Oh sure, maybe not as much as landing on a bicycle with the seat missing, but it hurts!

"There were some inconsistencies on his resume, like the period of employment at a Vandalay Industries, and a personal reference from a former traveling secretary named Costanza, but otherwise I think Hal will run the Yankees just fine. Now, let's get back to me and how else I can continue to ruin the game of baseball..."
