caption this 20: enigma edition

(photo by Clyde Caplan)

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:

“Wait … when did the Caps get that guy from the Saturday Night Live sketch?”

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

[Editor’s note: The winner is Paige with a caption of, “Mom, how come Semin doesn’t get a timeout when HE shits the bed?!” Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun.]

    Kid in stands, “WTF are you looking at Semin? All the action is behind you!”


    Neither the kids in the stands or Semin ever know what is going on, so they make the same faces.

    Per Hunter’s instructions Semin exited the bench and made two left turns at the dead end at the top of the rink in order to find his team. Finally admitting he was lost, a little boy offered up his own directions.

    “And that is why we wear tight pants, so we can reveal our bulges …”

    Kid in stands, “holy shit those pants are tight!”

    Semin and fans all overreact after finding out he still wasn’t traded at the deadline.

    or…… Since no one will pass to him, Semin joins the crow, “Red Solo Cup, I fill you up….”

    “Really, Semin? How have I somehow managed to learn how to avoid unnecessary stick penalties on my 6.7 DOLLAR a week allowance?”
