You Write the Caption is back

Soccer By Ives at related • 0 views

It has been quite some time since SBI stopped running the popular 'You Write the Caption" series, but I'm here to announce that we are bringing it back.

For those of you new to the site, YWTC is a regular series where we take a photo with comedic potential and let SBI readers give us their take on what the best caption would be for the photo.

You Write the Caption: The USA-Costa Rica edition

Soccer By Ives at related • 6 views

One of the most bizarre aspects of the U.S. men's national team's 2-2 vs. Costa Rica was Costa Rican head coach Rene Simoes' ejection and the subsequent dust-up that saw a team trainer also tossed and Simoes escorted from the field by security.

That scene not only cntributed to the additional stoppage time the United States used to find last-gasp equalizer, it also provided some comic relief.

Welcome to the latest edition of You Write the Caption. It has been a while since we had a caption contest, but today felt like a good day to have one.

Today's subject is David Beckham (surprise), who has won back some of the MLS fans he lost with his whole AC Milan experiment (pun intended).

While nobody ever accused Landon Donovan and David Beckham of being best friends, their already awkward relationship isn't likely to ever blossom into BFF status after Donovan's revelations in Grant Wahl's soon-to-be-released book, the Beckham Experiment.

We will have to wait a few weeks before Beckham returns to the Galaxy and the awkwardness reaches record heights at Home Depot Center, there is no reason we can't begin to have some fun with it now.

You Write the Caption: Best of the Ballack-Referee entries

It took forever, but we FINALLY got around to the last You Write the Caption contest. How could you forget this image of an enraged Michael Ballack chasing down Norwegian referee Tom Henning Ovrebo during Chelsea's Champions League semifinal loss to Barcelona (yes, it's been that long).

It may have been more than a month ago, but this image is still funny, and so are the top entries from the contest.

Welcome to the latest edition of You Write the Caption. We received more than 70 entries for this photo of Tom Hicks and George Gillet making nice during a recent Liverpool match and some of YWTC entries were very good (and some were great, but not quite family friendly if you know what I mean).

Just a few hours before the axe finally fell on Sven Goran Eriksson's tenure as Mexican national team manager, we here at SBI were able to have fun with one of his final moments in charge of 'El Tri' courtesy an image taken from Mexico's 3-1 loss to Honduras.

The picture shows Sven having words with Mexican striker Nery Castillo, who Sven also coached at Manchester City.

As you know by now, the voodoo dolls that Mexican fans were supposed to use to try and help Mexico beat the United States did not work.

With Wolyniec and the Red Bulls preparing to play in MLS Cup this weekend, what better time than to take a look at the very best caption submissions for the above photo, which caught Wolyniec celebrating his goal in the Red Bulls 3-0 playoff win against Houston.

Good afternoon all. It is time for a special MLS playoff edition of You Write the Caption. I know I haven't gotten around to picking the Top 10 captions from the Freddie Ljungberg edition of YWTC but I promise to have that up this week.

The new You Write the Caption comes courtesy of Red Bulls striker John Wolyniec, who scored his first goal of 2008 in dramatic fashion, to help seal his team's 3-0 upset win against Houston.

Welcome to the latest installment of You Write the Captions. This week's contest features a photo of Major League Soccer's newest millionaire, Seattle Sounders FC signing Freddie Ljungberg, who already has fans in Seattle buzzing about the impact he could make on and off the field.

The photo in question isn't necessarily a funny one, but it does leave plenty of room for creativity on the caption front.

Well folks. You knew it was just a matter of time.

It has been a few months since that old SBI staple, You Write the Caption, has graced us but it is now time to get it back into the rotation. Many of you have been asking for it to come back and I will now look to make it a weekly installment.

You Write the Caption: The Donovan Interview Edition

It has been almost a year since SBI's last installment of You Write the Caption, and that one came after a two-year hiatus for one of the site's original and most popular series. We plan on changing that after feedback from readers who told us we should bring the series back.

For those of you unfamiliar, You Write the Caption is when we post a funny photo and allow our readers to take their cracks at writing a caption to go with the photo.

It's time to pick a winner for the most recent edition of You Write the Caption. We received nearly 200 entries, though the quality of comedy wasn't up to the standard of past YWTC. We'll chalk that up to rust from not having had a You Write the Caption in months.
