Caption Contest Winners!

The replay officials have consulted and have determined the winner, after a long game delay! Humorist and author Steve Filippini has picked the winner of this week's contest, who will receive a copy of Steve's new book, Fix It Or Pull It, a memoir of Steve's experiences as an alarm technician in the field.

Captain's Award (Super Bowl) -- Jim S:

"Senator Kerry uses a football to demonstrate for reporters the Vulcan Mind Meld technique he used on several foreign leaders to determine that they supported him over President Bush."

Congratulations, Jim!

You Have The Conn #1 (AFC Champ) -- spd rdr:

"Tick..tick.. tick.. tick.."

You Have The Conn #2 (NFC Champ) -- Pile On:

"Ok, Gephardt, you run toward Iowa street then fade south and stay there, Dean go hard left and then off deep, Kucinich you go short, very short, Edwards, you aren't going anywhere, just stay in the pocket with me and try and make me look good, got it? On three,...break."

You Have The Conn #3 (Wild Card) -- Bradley:

"There's these team owners, and they tell me that I've got to beat Bush. I can't tell you who they are, but let's just say that it is the bottom of the ninth and we have 4 fouls."

Report To Sick Bay (On The Double) -- J_Crater:

"Gee ... now I know what Max Cleland was thinking just before ..."

Congratulations to everyone who contributed, and as always, the comments on this post will remain open for debate on the intelligence and taste of the judges as well as late entries for glory. I hope Jim enjoys Steve's book, and for everyone else, if you want a good laugh, make sure you pick up a copy for yourselves.

This Friday, Linda from Auterrific will be the guest judge, so make sure you visit her and start the apple-polishing as soon as possible!
