    Voted for the Xbox 360 caption, based solely on the fact that I’m a video game nerd.

    Wow…these aren’t very funny at all. But I remember there were a few funny ones. Maybe it is time to retire the “Caption” game for a while.

  11. Al17 says:

    Enough with Seattle already!!!!

    Time to talk about teams that have actually played or are playing. ;O)

    Rolls eyes!!!

  12. lou says:

    I like chris’ quote, and ives it’s a little off topic but any word on the progress of the red bull training facility, i heard is was going to open december of this year. Oh and great site by the way, number one for tri state area soccer news.

  13. Joamiq says:

    Yeah, I’m with James. None of these even came close to making me laugh.

  14. Betinho says:

    the Swedish chef is always funny…c’mon!

    Hoortie hoortie hoootie….

  15. aristotle says:

    Dave Clark:

    You made me wonder about that too. At first the only thing I could come up with was a group of wild boar or pigs, but what do they have to do with Seattle and who would name themselves that? Then I realized it must be (rather obvious now, I guess) that they were named after the Puget Sound.

  16. zach says:

    Drew Carey in a thong, hell, did Drew Carey write that? You, Fireball, nailed it. Well picked sir.

  17. Gabe says:

    I was smiling over most of them. The “Drew Carey’s Thong” line made a little bit of coffee come out my nose. Bad timing for a great little zinger. Still hurts…

  18. colin says:

    These definitely could have been better…

    How about “Ljungberg announces retirement”

  19. milo says:

    Hey Ives,

    Conde recently did an interview with a website saying that he wants to consider a move to Mexico and Europe, the kicker is that he gave props to MLS and slid in a comment saying the Top Goalscorer in Colombia right aka Freddy Montero will join Seattle!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Im Colombian and always happy to see Colombians join MLS, is this true?

    Montero to Seattle?
