(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.
Last Friday's Winners....
"I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me Superman."- Foos
"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?"- Austin
Let's see - did I get all my buzzwords in? Parity - check. Competitive balance - check. Record attendance - check. TV partners - check. Toughest drug testing program in American sports - check. 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."- Butterscotch
And your winner of a copy of EA's NCAA '09 is (drumroll)........
"I've never been a part of a win or loss in an All-Star Game. I never even knew that was in the rule book. It's part of the rules, and we have to go with it. 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."- The Sherm
Thanks for all of the entries last week, and EA Sports will be mailing the winners copies of the game very shortly. If I don't have your mailing address, please get it to me ASAP. The sponsor for this week's caption contest, as suggested by a commenter, is IMDB....and the winner will get absolutely nothing!
Captioners Choice: Are you funny enough to create a caption for this photo of Dick Vitale accepting his HOF medalion from Bobby Knight or are you funny to create a caption of Donovan McNabb sitting (or standing) out the second half yesterday?
