NN Caption Contest #5

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Round #4 is over, finally. My darn life got in the way of moderating this contest and thus it ran a few extra days. This week we have a guest submission for our image-to-be-captioned. The leaderboard is about neck and neck at the top, and this week you'll notice that I truncated the list at #25. If you're interested in your score but you're not top 25, leave a comment and I'll supply you with such information. NOTE! Please remember to check out the fanposts, as these are not guaranteed to be published on the front page. Plus, there's some other really great content. Similar to previous rounds, this will be open for 4-5 days.

Our champion for round 4 was the ever-successful sonuvafitch with 18 recs for:

"'Of course, Ray, we'll ALL wear sweats tomorrow!' they said..."

And our second and third place winners were Brother Girth (14 recs) and thunderousgenius (13 recs). Dishonorable mention goes to mrg80 for breaking the fourth wall (40 recs worth of shame). You're not Gilda Radner. Stop it. Stop it.

If our winners want to post their Twitter handles to pick up a few more followers, just leave it in the comments and I'll find a way to post them. (Don't look now, but @Harbaughcalypse is up near the header, wink wink)

1. One caption per entrant please! Take a few minutes and really craft it. If you have another one that you're dying to post, set it as a reply to your first one. This rule isn't terribly strict, just a guideline to make life easier on me.

2. The currency for this contest will be Rec's. There is no limit on how many posts you Rec. Each new round will include the winning submission from the previous round. Each round will be 4-5 days.

3. At the end of the contest (10-15 rounds, to be decided based on participation), the winner will be decided by TOTAL RECs. In instances where a user submitted multiple captions in a single round, the highest Rec total for a single submission will be applied towards the running total. The prize is bragging rights, which obviously is worth it's weight in gold on the internet.

4. Site Decorum applies 100%, that means no foul language, verbal harassment, and off-color jokes ought to be weighed heavily before posting.

On to round #5!
