With the off-season moving along slowly, all we can do is wait patiently for August to come. But to speed things along, Caption This! is back! As those of you who have taken part in the last four years know, Caption This! is a captioning competition that runs through the off-season, ending right before the regular season begins.
As the last four competitions have been a success, we're hoping for a similar rate of participation this fifth time around. Here's a basic overview of the contest: Each Sunday, you'll be presented with a picture that somehow relates to the Cardinals. It's your job to come up with a witty, funny, clever, etc. caption that fits the image provided. The site's readers will then vote on which caption they like best through the "rec" option in the comments. At the end of each week, the victors from the previous round will be added to an official "Table of Winners" to be highlighted in the next week's round.
The first two Caption This! competitions were won by AlaskanCard. The third was taken by D4, while the defending champion is Gungus, who won last year by taking home three weekly titles with 31 total votes. Will a repeat happen, or will someone else come in to take the fifth crown?
