caption this IV

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time again for the game that is sweeping the nation – caption this.

Three times we’ve played the game (here, here and here), and each time we’ve had great reader-submitted captions and participation, so let’s keep up the good work. 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 to get folks started:

Redskins owner Daniel Snyder pitches his idea for a “morning zoo” radio show featuring head coach Jim Zorn and offensive line coach Joe Bugel on ESPN980.

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

[Editor’s note: The winner is Paige, with a caption of, “I don’t care how good he was in Mission Impossible, we’re not putting Tom Cruise in at punt returns!” Thanks to everyone who contributed.]

    Snyder “Hey Zorn did you know that Eli Manning is behind you?”

    Zorn “I don’t want to trade for Eli, Jason is starting to come around, just have some faith. I hope JLC doesn’t see this and call the NFL”

    “It’s a new strategy I have come up with, Mr. Snyder. With 5 minutes or less left in the game and we need two possessions to win. What we do is run the ball because no one in their right minds would, and then lull them to sleep by huddling after every play, because they will expect us to go into a no-huddle or 2 minute offense. No here’s the genius of it. I go like this so I can’t hear my coaches ask me what the hell I am doing, then just sit back and watch the magic … or watch us go 0–1.”
