You Write The Caption: The Best of the Beckham/Xavier entries

Good afternoon folks. With the MLS season fast approaching, and the You Write the Caption Queue now filled with three contests that need to be judged, SBI will be looking to power through them today.

The first of the YWTC contests is the one involving this beautiful picture of David Beckham and Abel Xavier at a press conference. Xavier’s hairstyle makes any picture humorous, but throw in Beckham and you have a masterpiece.


And here are the winning captions (And yes, they are heavy on the Giuseppi Franco references):

10. "Damn…Procede works! It really works!!!" (Oscillate)

9. Beckham is pleased to have Valderrama back in MLS. (Robert)

8. Claims that Beckham is spending too much time enjoying the Hollywood lifestyle were renewed when he was recently spotted on the set of Teen Wolf 3. (Nicolinho)

7. Press Conference with David Beckham and "Papa" to announce the release of the new children’s book "The Berenstain Bears go to a Soccer Game". (Zungazan)

T6. "My name’s Xavier Abel, I’m not putting my name on the line for something that doesn’t look F’ing retarded!" (Frimp)

T6. Beckham’s reaction after "I’m abel xavier I’m not putting my name on the line for something that doesn’t work" (J1)

5. David Beckham smirks as he realizes that putting Abel Xavier’s head in an Aero Garden was a brilliant prank (SBI)

4. David Beckham at a recent autograph signing with Little Richards grandpa (Charlie N.)

3. Beckham coyly smiles as Lalas unveils the signing of LA’s latest multi-million-dollar DP from Fraggle Rock FC.(Mike Caramba)

2. Becks: "Guisseppe Franco told me he was gonna keep it simple for my mate…" (Sean H)

1. "Two men enter, one man leaves" (Luis)

For those of you missing the reference for No. 1, it’s from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Yes, the movie is more than 20 years old, but the reference was classic. Here’s the proof:

And yes, I did sneak one of my own in, but I had to do it.

  1. How did I miss out on this one? Shame on me!

    The latest entry of all . . .

    “Beckham smiles on as Abel Xavier is named the new spokesperson for ‘Q-Tip'”

  2. A Diddy says:

    At last, an edition of “You Write The Caption” without any stupid gay jokes.

  3. Luis says:

    Dominate! I had high hopes for winning this one, now I can drink in celebration!

  4. Tony in Quakeland says:

    “David Beckham introduces the new line of MLS Chia Pets.”

    Yeah, I know, contest is over…

  5. Seisco says:

    I liked #2 the best

  6. Me and Tony DEMAND a RECOUNT!


  7. Mike Caramba says:

    I was worried my Fraggle Rock reference would be lost.

  8. Ives says:

    Seisco, to be honest, No. 2 made me laugh out loud because I could definitely picture Beckham saying that. I think the overwhelming number of Franco-Procede entries cost No. 2 the top spot.

  9. Mike Caramba says:

    I’d just like to say, it’s completely awesome that multiple Giuseppe Franco/Procede referenced played. I can’t think of many other places where they’d work.

  10. Frimp says:

    #3 killed me – Fraggle Rock FC. genius.

  11. LA Metro says:

    Too many Procede ones. Give us some variety, Ives.

  12. Dominghosa says:

    Just to even come up wtih “Fraggle Rock FC” is pure genius. But No. 1 takes the freaking cake.

  13. danj says:

    Adding yet another celebrity to their star-studded lineup, the LA Galaxy announce they have signed the reclusive Sly Stone to central defense.

  14. David Berger says:


  15. JN says:

    Even David Beckham gets uncomfortable when Xavier starts talking about his glandular disorder…..

  16. Brant says:

    Of course, anyone who doesn’t watch FSC to be bombarded with Aero-garden and Procede commercials would only get half of those jokes. But for those of us that do, it’s gold…

  17. MiamiAl says:

    Why he’s just a raggedy man…Break a deal- Face the wheel…

  18. eric says:

    the real number 1:

    “who farted?”
