The Return of You Write the Caption

Well folks. You knew it was just a matter of time.

It has been a few months since that old SBI staple, You Write the Caption, has graced us but it is now time to get it back into the rotation. Many of you have been asking for it to come back and I will now look to make it a weekly installment.

I am working on securing a sponsor for YWTC so that contest winners actually win a prize like they used to. I will keep everyone posted on that in the coming days.

For now, here is a photo of Los Angeles Galaxy goalkeeper Josh Wicks, who may or may not be dazed from facing so many shots and seeing so many goals fly by his head since taking over as the Galaxy’s starting goalkeeper. Enjoy:

That’s my shot at a caption. Now it’s your turn. Please submit your caption in the comments section below and I will select the 10 best captions later this week. As an added twist to the selection process, I will pick what I think the two best captions are and then have you, the readers, vote on the winner.

Now, onto the captions. Just remember to keep them clean and keep them relatively short.

Fire away.


  1. Uhhh I never shoulda left my “Donovan McNabb does Alvin & the Chipmunks” cross-dressing gig in Reno, this LA goalie job is a dead-end drag…

  2. Josh Wicks pleading to Tim Liewicke are you sure Eddie Lewis was a better choice than Gibbs? I mean we could have even got a shot at Benny… Please this strategy of no D is killing me. I mean look at this face, I’m tired. I just want to go home.

  3. This is a hybrid. This is a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sensemilia. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play an entire soccer game on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt that night on this stuff.

  4. “Come on and help me you guys! Ive been here for 3 days! I swear that there is a geyser here and if i remove my hands the HDC and all its inhabitants are screwed!”

  5. 1. Originally people thought that Wick’s nickname of “S’rooms” was due to his hairstyle.

    2. The LA Galaxy had a “retro” uniform and hair night in hopes it would lead to “retro-defense” from the Schmid and Osiander era’s.

    3. Given cap difficulties, the many low salaried players on the LA Galaxy roster like GK Wicks often resort to picking up coins thrown at them from the stands.

  6. Josh Wicks’ gambit of fusing a 1Up Mushroom from Super Mario Brothers to his head has unfortunately failed to secure any extra points for the LA Galaxy.

  7. Hi Ives,

    I was just thinking of a way to get Kenny Cooper on the USMNT and thought he would be perfect for playing on the right wing. Why? Because Kenny is fast and good with the ball, besides he doesn’t use his noggin enough to score goals from the middle. Then I would move Dempsey up top with Altidore, as Dempsey proved with Fulham last year, he was good at holding the ball up top. I wish Beasley could play right back, that way they would have a speedy defender on defense. This would be my starting eleven on USMNT:





    What do you think?
