You Write the Caption: The 'El Tri' edition

Chances are that in the midst of your celebrating the U.S. team's rousing 3-0 victory against Trinidad & Tobago you might have missed Mexico's meltdown in Honduras.

Our neighbors to the south had a terrible time in San Pedro Sula, falling 3-1 to a Honduran team that has leapfrogged them in the CONCACAF qualifying standings. The defeat has Sven Goran Eriksson in danger of losing his job (again) and has Mexican fans nervous heading into a difficult summer.

We here at SBI never miss a chance to focus on the Mexican national team's struggles (we are, after all, an American soccer website) so we thought it was a good time to bring back You Write the Caption. We have a photo of Sven and everybody's favorite Uruguayan Mexican striker, Nery Castillo, for you to consider. The best caption submitted for the contest will win one of our new SBI Mafia t-shirts by Objectivo.

"Nery, this is two jobs I lose with you on the team. You don't think I noticed the pattern?"


"Don't even think about asking me to bring you to Portsmouth."

Now it's your turn. Share your best caption entry for the above photos and we will select the ten best entries before allowing readers to choose the best from those ten.

The winning caption will win an SBI Mafia t-shirt. If you haven't ordered yours yet, what are you waiting for?
