caption this 21: frowny face edition

(courtesy photo)

Ladies and gentlemen, back by popular demand, it’s time for another round of “caption this.”

The game is fairly simple, as you hopefully know by now. I supply the photo and you bring the witty reader-submitted captions. You might not win any cool prizes, but you’ll be formally recognized for being better than your peers and will get some love here on the blog.

Here’s my humble offering for this photo to help get folks started:

“Sorry buddy, I know you really want to, but you can’t stay here in Chicago.”

Think you can do better? Leave a comment below with your best caption.

[Editor's note: The winner is DrCapsFan with a caption of, “Sasha don’t mean nothing by it.. Don’t worry.. He be back in Russia soon, anyway..” Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun.]
