Create The Caption #316

Monday, November 24, 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.

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?

Andy "You were terrible. Why are you being this way? Why can't you just be proud of Kevin?"

Donovan "I can't believe you did this to me. You benched me. I thought you said I was a great QB"

Andy "It was a joke. I even wrote it down in my diary. I told Donovan a very funny joke today. I laughed at it later that night"

Donovan "I can't believe that I cared for you"

Andy "Get out. Just go. We are through. Through. Because of your actions, you overrated toad"

Donovan "You have broken my heart, Mr. Reid. You have broken my heart"

You will live in happiness too

You know this whole Starburry treatment is not really that bad. Sure I will get ripped by Rush Limbaugh and the numbnuts on Philadelphia sports radio. But I am getting millions not to play or know the rule book. Fuck 'em.

Well I've never been benched. I didn't even know it was in the rulebook, but again ya know its part of the rules so I guess we have to go with it. I was looking forward the next opportunity to go out there and lead a drive to try and win the game, unfortunatly, I got benched. In college, I had multiple turnovers and never got benched, and in high school and Pop Warner. I never knew in the professional ranks it would end that way. I hate to see what would happen if Kevin Kolb led us to the Super Bowl and the playoffs.

Donovan ponders his future on the sidelines.

This coaching thing ain't so tough, I think I have all the tools. Poor time management? Yes. Inability to comprehend the basic fundamentals of football? Certainly. Now if I can only fit two more parkas on, I'll be fully qualified.

Coach Knight narrating: You know, we always called each other good fellas. Like you said to, uh, somebody, :You're gonna like this guy. He's all right. He's a good fella. He's one of us.: You understand? We were good fellas. Wiseguys. But Jimmy and I could never be made because we had Irish blood. It didn't even matter that my mother was Sicilian. To become a member of a crew you've got to be one hundred per cent Italian so they can trace all your relatives back to the old country. See, it's the highest honor they can give you. It means you belong to a family and crew. It means that nobody can **** around with you. It also means you could **** around with anybody just as long as they aren't also a member. It's like a license to steal. It's a license to do anything. As far as Jimmy was concerned with Dickie being made, it was like we were all being made. We would now have one of our own as a member.

Jeez, in the past few weeks Donovan's gained a lot of weight, and gotten really bad at football, and said a lot of nasty things about Obama, and popped a lot of pills, and spent a lot of time reading Larrouse Gastronomique, and watched the last thirty minutes of 'Silence of the Lambs' a few hundred times, and ...

Every day it gets worse, it just hurts me so much. Why must we divide ourselves into groups? Can't we all just accept each other, no matter if we choose to quote movies, press conferences, or god forbid Saved By The Bell? Because in the end, aren't we all just human beings trying to see our names published on one of our favorite sports blogs?"
