Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners

This week's Weekend Caption Contest™ was another home run. There really were too many good entries to choose just six... Being a (nearly) life-long Padre fan it wasn't hard for me to pick a winner, I suppose it was just good fortune that most of you chose it as well. Anyway, the assignment this week was to caption the following picture:

Here are the winning entries:

1) (vader06) - "And the Padre's Take the Field!!! Play Ball!!"

2) (Neoluddite) - "On Friday, a photo of Pope Benedict's visit to the Nationals' Ballpark was incorrectly captioned as a rally for Senator Obama's presidential campaign. The Times regrets the error."

3) (Peter F.) - "Ohhhhh, say that's what's meant by 'If you build it, He will come'."

4) (fustian) - "The super delegates are a little full of themselves this year."

5) (No One of Consequence) - "After months of research, the assemblage of priests and religious scholars delivers the bad news to Cubs fans: Hell has not yet frozen over"

6) (Jeff) - "As the team from the Vatican takes the field, they anxiously look around for "Morganna, The Kissing Bandit" they have heard so much about..."

The Readers Choice Award this week went to vader06's winning entry. The next highest vote total was for this worthy caption:

(Dave thA) - "And Now, the LIONS!"

That's it for this weekend. As always, a new edition of the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™ will debut Friday morning.

Had I been judging this one... (Below threshold)

Had I been judging this one, Dave thA would have taken all three of the top prizes. 4, 5, and 6 would have been fustian's, Jeff's, and Neoluddite's.

Dave, it was just THAT tasteless.


I'm still expecting reality... (Below threshold)

I'm still expecting reality TV to get there soon.

There is only so much American Idol and shows about flipping houses the public can take...

Ugh! You gave first prize ... (Below threshold)
Jim in Cleveland:

Ugh! You gave first prize to someone who doesn't know how to use an apostrophe!

I would have had to withdra... (Below threshold)
Peter F.:

I would have had to withdraw my co-editor status at Wizbang Sports had I not had at least one caption chosen. The shame would have been too great to bear.

Thanks for humoring this hack.
