How to play:

It's simple, really. Look at the sports-related pictures above, and give us your funniest caption for any or all of them. You can write as many captions for each as you would like.

The challenge runs daily, Monday-Thursday. Each day's competition will usually be posted by noon ET, and will usually end around 11 p.m. ET. On Monday and Wednesday, Community member ktopp24 will be the judge. On Tuesday and Thursday, I'll run the show. If one of the judges decide that your caption is the funniest or most clever submitted for that picture, it will be declared a winner.

Winning captions will be announced when that day's challenge ends. There will be one winner for each picture, and also one winner for the person who can string together the 5 best captions all with the same theme.

You will be awarded one point for each winning caption that you post. You will see a running tally on the scoreboard, which will be posted at the beginning and end of each day. At the end of each month a champion is declared, and we shower that user in praise and adulation! We add his screenname to the Wall-O-Fame, and then we start everyone's score back at zero.

Brett Favre, by the numbers

Being a lifetime Packer fan has brought me alot of joy in the last 18 or so years. Especially during the "Farve Era". He and Mike Holmgren together brought Green Bay out of the cellar and into the mainstream as a team that was hard to beat. So, I will ALWAYS be a Brett Favre fan, except the 2 weeks per year that we play the Vikings. That is, until he retires...for good...maybe. Anyways, here are some very interesting things I discovered about his lifetime stats. So I thought I'd share...

- When Brett throws his 9th TD pass this year, he will have more TD passes than Joe Montana and Steve Young....combined.

- As of the 2009 NFL season, Brett Favre has thrown 497 regular season TD passes. The next closest active contender is Peyton Manning....131 behind.

- Favre currently has 69,329 passing yards to his name. This is exactly 400 more yards than Phil Simms and Jim Kelly....combined. Yes I know that Kelly only played 11 seasons and Simms only played 15, but this is a hell of an accomplishment.

- If Brett Favre throws for more than 4000 yards this year, it will be the 6th time in his career reaching that level. Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana, Bart Starr, Jim Kelly, Jim McMahon, and Roger Staubach all had a combined total of....wait for it....wait for it....ZERO. Hell, even Elway and Namath only did it once. The only other player to do this more times than 6, is Peyton Manning with 9.

I'm sure there is alot more that I could come up with but this is all that I will bore you with for now.

Vikings trade Favre to farmer in Northern MN

Minneapolis, MN—The Minnesota Vikings addressed questions concerning the current status, future plans, and whereabouts of recently retired/un-retired/retired/un-retir
ed quarterback Brett Favre by announcing Monday that they had sent him to the country to live on a beautiful farm with a very nice family.

"We know you loved Brett Favre, but he wasn't happy here. He couldn't stay here," Vikings head coach Brad Childress told hundreds of quiet but tear-streaked fans assembled at the televised Metrodome press conference. "And he loved you, too—he loved you very much indeed—but he needed to go someplace where he could run and jump and throw his favorite football around. And he couldn't do that here anymore."

"So we took Brett out behind the practice facility last night, and we… Adrian Peterson and I, we… We gave him one last hug, and we said goodbye to him, and Brett went away forever," Childress said, his voice breaking several times. "Those loud banging noises you heard were probably the truck backfiring. He went to the farm in a truck, you know."

Childress then unveiled an artist's conception of Favre frolicking in the fields at the lovely farm, which he said was "a very, very nice place where they do not have winters or telephones" and "believe me, absolutely not Favre's farm in Hattiesburg, Mississippi."

"Don't be sad," Brad told fans, many of whom began crying audibly, shaking their heads, or turning away at the news. "You should be happy for Brett. He is in a much better place now. He has many of your other favorite Vikings, really great Vikings like Fran Tarkenton and Jim Marshall and Chris Carter, to keep him company. And he even has a coach—Mike Tice is on that farm, too."

Although Vikings officials gave no specific details of the farm, its location, or the family who will now take care of Favre, Childress confirmed that it is "far, far away, beyond the football fields we know, in a very happy place where Brett will never be cold or get sacked ever again."

"There are no winters there, and no injuries, and no interceptions, and even though people will play football with Brett all day, they all have so much fun that no one remembers who won or who lost," Childress added. "Brett loved Minnesota, and it is a nice place, but this farm is even nicer. It was just time for him to go there."

Although many fans were upset that Favre had to leave to go to the farm even more suddenly than he retired/un-retired, most seemed to understand that their quarterback was old and tired and needed to rest.

Team officials gently but firmly refused all fan and media requests to visit Favre on the farm.

"Someday we'll all join him there," Childress added, avoiding the eyes of fans and reporters while seeming to look past them at something far in the distance. "Someday. But not for a long, long time. Right now, just be happy for Brett. Wherever he is now, what he wants most is for you to be happy."

Childress also confirmed that Favre's jersey was still available from the Viking Pro Shop and that as long as Favre had gone to the farm, the $1.6 million outstanding on Favre's contract would not count towards the salary cap and be returned to the team.
