Caption This 28
Please come up with a creative caption for this photo [Read on for instructions]
London, ON, June 2007
I captured this image at my daughter's track meet last month. I've always been captivated by running tracks because they represent places of intense competition, where long periods of training come down to a few seconds of truth, where relatively few people reach the top and pretty much everyone else goes home empty-handed.
I thought the pylons' placement was saying something, but I couldn't quite figure out what that "something" was. Can you?
Your turn: Click on the Comments link and leave as many witty, funny and brilliant captions for this image as you wish. Is your long-lost cousin also hankering for some Sunday enjoyment? Bonus points if you bring him/her along as well.
One more thing: Please click here for details on how Caption This is played. Last week's top-down image of Santa garnered a sleigh-full of superb responses. The ever-brilliant Craziequeen coined this lovely phrase: "While Santa is on his break, the public are NOT to cross the candy cane" and in doing so takes the prize. Well, there is no prize, per se, beyond my deepest thanks for making this such a joyous highlight of the week.
Other gems were submitted by b13 ("You expect ME to pick that up? I can't even see my shoes!!!"), Ms. Pretend ("It's times like these I wish I had listened to Mrs Claus and taken my glucosamine tablets..."), Bob-kat ("Wait until I catch the elf that keeps shrinking my walking stick!"), Joy ("When no one's looking. That candy cane is mine.") and Heidi ("I'd pick up that candy cane, but... be kind. I am still carrying a little holiday weight.") It was a great week in Caption This-land. Thank you all for participating, and good luck with #28!
