MZone Caption Contest - Redux

So after considering some of the truly thoughtful comments on our previous version of the Caption Contest, we've decided to pull the old picture down and put a new one up. And we're staying with the Michigan theme. We've had a number of the Caption Contests and they usually make fun of tOSU, Tennessee, or Alabama. But not this time. As far as we know, this is an undoctored photo.


Here's our first suggestion:

OK, OK, use the keys. They're far more intimidating.

UPDATE: Benny, couldn't resist adding my own caption here...

When did Chris Kattan become a Michigan fan?

Good decision on changing the photo guys.

How about: Looking for a ride back to North Campus, the last Bursley Bus left 10 minutes ago...

Ah, the Maize Rage...

I don't know whether to laugh at these guys, or feel sorry for them. Especially the kid with the bucket on his head. These clowns take over entire sections of the bleachers and act like they're God's gift to basketball fandom. It's sad. No one else, apparently, is worthy of being as big of a Michigan fan as these guys.

My caption: "The 0.4% of Markley residents who aren't freshmen."

No, they're not fans. They're Tommy's latest recruits.

Budlight presents...real men of genius.

Some hardcore college football fans paint their faces, yell at the top of their lungs and give it their all every saturday. Not you Mr. Freshman key jiggler. You're a whitebread midwestern throwback from the mitten state. Every saturday after you finish your Physics Homework you bravely jangle your keys like a jello jiggler on speed in hopes of preventing another Lloyd Carr meltdown. Intimidation...you've got the keys to your dead grandma's Dodge Stratus. You're truly are a man of genius.

Why did the photo get changed? I breezed through here yesterday but didn't read the comments because I was busy refreshing about ten political blogs every thirty seconds or so from about 5pm to 4am. Props to you Michiganders on Granholm and Stabenow; not so much on Issue 2.

Anyway, let me guess: the guy in the picture is a homeless/mentally ill fixture in A2, and it was judged to be in poor taste to be apparently mocking him - did I get it right?

There's guys like that on every campus (or, perhaps more accurately, attached to every campus). Here in Columbus we've had the "Help is on the way" guy for years, who I still see around sometimes, and one dude who used to walk up and down High Street barking along at the top of his voice to the heavy metal playing on his Walkman - at least I hope there was music playing on that Walkman.

Oh, and here's my caption:

"Meeting at Crisler arena to take their parents' minivans to their game vs. Northwestern, the U of M World of Warcraft team stikes a fearful pose."

DAMN it..."strikes".

Oh, and boo to Granmole and the beast, Stabenow. Yay on 2. (and 5)

As the one who first suggested you change the photo, I feel I owe you at least a suggested caption on the new pic. So here it is. Sing it if you know the tune: "Backstreet's back, alright!"

A wild guess that this was the only way the guy on the far right ever got "leied."

In the spirit of sportsmanship, and in hopes of maintaining our presence on the NCAA's good side, we here at the University of Michigan introduce the New Fab 5, err 6, guranteed not to raise any suspicions about paying players to get talent. (These fuckers are also more than likely smart enough to remember how many timeouts are left).
