It's time to pick a winner for the most recent edition of You Write the Caption.
We received nearly 200 entries, though the quality of comedy wasn't up to the standard of past YWTC. We'll chalk that up to rust from not having had a You Write the Caption in months.
We have selected five caption entries for SBI readers to choose from. The writer of the caption that receives the most votes will receive an SBI T-Shirt.
Here are the finalists:


A concerned Bob Bradley called authorities after a soccer ball went missing. Apparently the US team hadn't seen it for 45 minutes. Argentine is the #1 suspect.– Douglas


BB: "What's wrong with my midfield?"
Officer: "Dunno..triangles always worked for me."– ImaGoalMan


Bob Bradley and the Officer get caught in an awkward "Kiss Cam" moment"–Rod


"Think I've got a shot with that chick in row 47?" WeathermanNX01


Bob: You know sometimes I stare at the stands wishing Tiffany May would rush out and sprint across that field just one more time.

Office: Mmmmmmm. Yeah. I'd like to tackle that."–SeaOtter

    Who Farted?

  2. MidWest Ref says:

    Excuse me officer, did Landon really kick it that far over the bar?

  3. Buddle-icious says:

    Not our best work as a collective.

  4. Big Chil says:

    Yes, Colonel, we will break Tim Howard’s arm and put in Sylvester Stallone.

  5. Jason B says:

    I voted for the second one. Its the only one that made me chuckle out loud.

  6. ConcernedBB says:

    Is that Klinsmann sitting next to Sunil?

  7. Annelid Gustator says:

    “Bob Bradley and M. Bison watch with concern as Tim Howard’s drop-kick sails uselessly to the opposing goalie”

  8. mental assassin says:


  9. Jose says:

    Wow you know looking at this stadium again, you are right Giants and Jets Fans are really getting screwed with those PSLs

  10. b says:

    Same here…. Not sure why #1 is currently winning.

  11. patrick says:

    thats the winner right there

  12. Colin says:

    Same reason that “Two and a Half Men” was the #1 comedy in primetime.

  13. Cabrito says:

    “Here come the Allied Forces, Commander Rommel. God speed, sir.”

  14. Mike Caramba says:

    I can’t believe no M. Bison references made the cut! I’d have taken a crack at it if several others hadn’t already.

  15. Mr. Beef says:


    no Hogan’s Heroes fans here I take it.

  16. boosted335 says:

    There were M.Bison references but somehow they didnt make the cut???

  17. john.q says:

    HAHAHA M. Bison! i would definately vote for that.

  18. abc says:

    SBI staff probably don’t get the reference…

  19. BigLustythongGrl says:

    i’m with those who dont think the uniform looks like a real peace officer’s uniform, so i’m going with this from bob: “that halftime show in support of gay pride month doesnt really appeal to me, especially the disturbing display of speedos on that one float…a comment to which the “officer” remains fixated and silent”.

  20. SeattleStan says:

    The best part is that Bradley kind of looks like Sagat sans-eyepatch. Tiger Uppercut!

  21. Johnny Thunder says:

    Yeah…the only caption that sucked worse than those is the one I submitted. I will abstain (from voting).

  22. Victory! says:

    Hatch! +1

  23. Brett says:

    No M. Bison reference = no vote.

  24. YO says:

    I have a better one — Sir, please you must come with me, Charlie just took a nasty dive.

  25. Robert Daniels says:

    You think you can play forward?

  26. buff111 says:

    Yes Bob, you have a fine profile, but compared to mine, you are a pretender!

  27. Annelid Gustator says:

    I didn’t even think that but you’re right, kinda. Or a very pale Dhalsim.

  28. KutamaObama says:

    Psycho Crusher……….

  29. John says:

    Pretty lame options. “None of the above” would be leading if it was an option.

  30. seth says:

    neither the picture nor the comments are funny…

  31. strider says:

    +1 : surely Ives and co. can come up with a better photo. My best shot was: “Is it a bird? is it a plane? No, its super Juan.” Pretty lame, but as good as anything here.

  32. WeatherManNX01 says:

    Not my best effort, but it’s an honor to be nominated. Thanks!

  33. Ben says:

    Come on, the triangles one has the best wit.

  34. ImaGoalMan says:

    *Ahem* I concur…If I do say so myself đŸ˜€ … I didn’t expect to be up there at all, either.

  35. Los says:

    Bob: what am i staring at again?

    officer: a potential goal scorer?

    Bob: now thats just jozy altidore

  36. gbs says:

    Is there any us fans in the stands?

  37. j says:

    Bob, welcome to Starship Troopers.

  38. Chris Mac says:

    Officer: Its a bird! Its a plane!

    BB: No, that’s Juan Agudelo!

  39. Marty says:

    BB: Why is Henry Rollins dressed as an NJ state trooper?

  40. SeattleStan says:

    I so want to play Street Fighter II Turbo right now.

  41. boosted335 says:

    why? most people are retarded?

    haha I like 2 and 3 myself

  42. Soccernste says:

    Note to self: next year, schedule the Paraguay friendly in Miami in August.

  43. Dawsaw says:

    duh winning?

  44. shane says:

    None of them are funny (except the triangle one, a bit) because the picture/subject matter is bad.

  45. DC Fan in SOcal says:

    “did we just lose to Paraguay? I should really consider going back to coach Chivas USA”

  46. fischy says:

    Because #1 actually includes the trooper, and sort of accounts for the fact that they’re looking up, rather than at the field.

  47. fischy says:

    Unfortunately, that’s an NJ State trooper’s uni.

  48. fischy says:

    No — but that trooper has one helluva jawline. He should be in Hollywood making superhero movies.

  49. fischy says:

    That Messi kid can actually FLY?!?!?

  50. chad e says:

    nice pole huh? i love these things, there so nice to lean on

  51. Brian says:

    With Bison’s help Coach Bradley attempts to use Psycho Power the speed up the clock and end the night’s embarrassment.

  52. freddy says:

    “Is Josy really taking on 3 guys?”

  53. wilyboy says:

    “Sir, I can’t come over every time you Think you see Jurgen Klinsmann.”

  54. says:

    i should just quit, i need to make these fans happy

  55. Steve says:

    Is that the Qatari’s new artificial cloud?

  56. Mike in Long Island says:

    Hilarious! Definitely the winner.

  57. Jblast says:
