Caption This!

The fifth annual Caption This! competition is here!

[David Wallace]-Arizona Republic-USA TODAY Sports-USA TODAY Sports

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?

The official rules to Caption This!:

  • Write a caption for the featured picture. It can be what the player(s) are thinking, saying, or just your caption for the scene.
  • If you view the post, vote for someone else's caption. You can do this by selecting actions>rec underneath the person's comment. The more votes we get, the more competitive the game will be.
  • Your name will be added to the list with the total number of votes and weeks you've won.

And to start off this year's contest, here is the first picture:

Good luck captioning!
