You Write the Caption: The Donovan Voodoo edition


                                                                                 Photo by Soccer By Ives

Remember the voodoo doll that caused such a stir down in Mexico? The one that Mexican fans were supposed to poke with pins to help Mexico beat the United States?

Today, the doll met Landon Donovan.

Yes, that is a picture of Donovan from Tuesday's press conference, being shown the voodoo doll by a Mexican journalist (who happened to be from the Mexican newspaper that sponsored the doll giveaway. I know, shocking). Donovan held the doll, observed it, and when asked to pose with it, he declined and chose instead to toss it aside playfully. He isn't a big believer in voodoo.

So there is the picture. Now it's your turn to write the caption to go with this photo. The best caption submitted will earn the entrant a free t-shirt from SBI Sponsor Objectivo Apparel. And no, I didn't forge about the Beckham YWTC, that one is coming, but I had to do this one.

Fire away folks. Let's hear some good ones.


  1. Donovan tries his hardest not to break out in a giggle as he curiously thinks to himself, “I wonder if the carpet matches the drapes.”

  2. Donavan examines it, thinking it is a demo of the new USA Uniform. “What is this a jersey for ants, it needs to be at least 3 times as big”.

  3. “Landon Donovan learns that practice time spent playing with dolls is why the Mexican National Team has struggled recently against the USMNT.”
