Welcome back to Caption This. That’s 45-year-old Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer holding the pitching rubber during last night’s celebration of the team’s World Series championship at Citizens Bank Park. I’m fairly certain the youngsters around him are his kids; he has seven.
Exultant Phillies fan Anthony Verna will be using his legal background to make today’s judicious, perhaps even Solomonic, selections. Meanwhile, I will be posting captions in the comments section along with the Peanut Gallery. So please scooch over.
The floor is now AV's:
Ladies and gentlemen, I must commend you for the high quality of captions in today's non-contest. I have to admit that I was surprised to see a paucity of Roger Clemens or Barry Bonds jokes.
I must be running to the house where I grew up to visit my parents and continue the celebration for the 2008 World Series champions, the Philadelphia Phillies.
I have chosen 16 entries that tickled my sense of humor (don't forget, your sense of humor might differ slightly from mine).
