In the March 6 issue of the Syracuse New Times, we published a Michael Davis photo from a Syracuse University men’s basketball game that makes us chuckle every time we look at it. In fact, the photo just screamed out for a caption, so we asked you, our readers, to submit your best caption for the chance to win fabulous prizes.
Here are the entries, along with First Place and the Grand Prize winner. Thanks to everyone who entered. Look forward to similar contests in the future.
