(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.

Look at that awesome head of hair, baby! Even with one eye I can tell that is a magificent head of hair, baby! A true PTP'er.... I used to have hair like that when I was coaching in the NBA, baby...You know who else has great hair? Coach K and Tim Teabow. The General -- Robert Montgomery Knight -- would approve of that head of hair....You know who else would, too....Jimmy V...Never give up, baby...

Dan Shulman (off camera): "So Chauncey, you and your teammates must have been tremendously excited when you heard the 1,000 promos that ESPN went to great lengths to air in the last 3 days on all of its programs and game broadcasts that the legendary Dick Vitale would be calling this game, right?"

Chauncey Billups: "Sure"

Dick Vitale: "I think this young kid here has a heck of a future in front of him, Dan. Chauncey, when are you going to win your first NBA title?"

Chauncey Billups: "I already did. In fact...I was the NBA Finals MVP in 2003-2004 with Detroit."

Dick Vitale: "Ah, keep at it anyways. You'll get to the mountain top someday. You're still a PTPer in my book, baby."

"So Chauncey, what do you think your chances are of getting to the Final four against Duke and the lucious Coach K, baby?"

"Uh, this is the NBA, Dick."

"Hey, what do I know? I'm bald, I got one eye and I talk loud in order to distract people from contemplating the gibberish that comes out of my mouth, baby!"

Billips: Looks like it's gonna be a two-on-one, a m»nage a trois of pain.

Billups was told to just smile and nod when he couldn't understand what Dickie V was blabbering...

Dickie V was mysteriously replaced with an automated doll that ramdomly sputtered out "PTP'er" and "BABY" between uninteligible words... and no one noticed.
