Wouldn’t you know it. After three months off, You Write the Caption has made a strong comeback, with this week’s entry drawing a new record for submissions entered.

Let’s face it, the above photo of Josh Wicks can’t help but inspire the comedy writer in all of us. I must admit to feeling a bit bad about the timing since Wicks isn’t exactly coming off a stellar performance last night (See Morning Ticker). Ah well, that’s life in the pros.

Well, it wasn’t easy picking from the more than 170 entries, but here are the ten entries I thought were the best of the bunch. I will let you, the SBI readers, pick the best caption from five finalists I select.

Now, onto the captions.

Here are the 10 best entries:

To save money under the cap L.A. has recently decided to go with a Chia Pet keeper (Huricano)

It’s Official! after searching everywhere Josh Wicks realizes that no one will ever find the galaxy defense. (Ed Dog)

"Giving up goals, so easy a caveman can do it" (Anthony)

I think I’m just going to stick with playing drums for the Roots. (Chuck)

This is your brain; this is your brain when playing for the Galaxy. (Rocco)

I told Play we shouldn’t have another House Party! (Sayreville FC)

Gotta stop hangin with Snoop the day of games (Doug)

Damn! I shouldn’t have shared my water bottle with Quaranta! (Chupacabra)

(To the tune of Afroman’s I Get High)" I was gonna make that save, but then i got high…" (Darwin)

Today South Africa unveiled Zakumi the Tiger, the FIFA World Cup 2010 mascot. (Wispy)

  3. Danny says:

    Hahaha all of them are great…Man the Galaxy are a joke

  4. dave says:

    I can’t let the bong water soak in…it will stink forever…

  5. thumpjosh says:

    the galaxy must have replaced andrew shue with michael dorn.

  6. 4now says:

    “…8, 9, 10.”

    -ding, -ding, -ding.

  7. Eugene says:

    “I’m just going to lay low until all the shooting stops”

  8. Danny D says:

    Searching for the Defense is my favorite (not a top five choice.) Then I’d have to go with a tie for Chiapet Keeper and the Quaranta water bottle. Nice laughs. Thanks!

  9. Josh says:

    DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE, what happened?????

  10. Jeffrey says:

    He looked a lot like that last night after Blanco skipped by him and scored.

  11. Jspot says:

    Poor form Ives! Bad professional blogger! posting “shouldn’t have shared a water bottle with Quaranta” I guess it is fun to joke on a Santino Quaranta’s fight with alcoholism 11 months sober getting close to a year I think, this monkey almost ended his career… usually you have a bit more class then this, poking fun at a recovering alcoholic…

  12. nels says:

    lol, quaranta.

  13. SteveT says:

    Jspot, get a grip dude. Quaranta is a professional athlete who almost pissed his career away on drugs and alcohol and you’re saying nobody can make fun of him? Screw that.

    And I thought Quaranta’s problem was pills anyway, not alcohol.

  14. 4now says:

    get some empathy, decency, and discretion SteveT. Jspot makes a reasonable point.

  15. Willie yo says:

    Maybe if I grow this hairdo out more, they won’t be able to see the goal.

  16. Mark says:

    The Quaranta one is practically slander, but hilarioius.

  17. cynthia says:

    Ives, I would have to say my favorite is looking for galaxy defense, why isn’t it in the top five? And the quaranta quote was funny but sad.
