Caption Contest Winner: with Apologies to Seabiscuit

Coming out of the gates, "Football for Dummies" took a commanding lead. In fact, in War Admiral fashion, FfD was the odds on favorite. The intellectual pedigree was obvious but just after the fourth turn, the judges detected a hint of mockery. Could it be that the FfD caption was vitriol in the guise of flattery? To put that in laymen and college football coaches' vernacular...I mean...language, a wolf in sheep's clothing? Once again, the judges sense something was rotten in the state of FfD.The conundrum was what to do about it. At the wire, in a photo-finish conclusion, Andrew Fluegge penned the caption that vaulted him to the winner's circle: Spandex, cycling: Mr. Rohde before he discovered the weight room.

There was initial skepticism because of the indirect criticism of cycling. The spandex clad cyclists don't appreciate jabs from non-cyclists. However, as soon as Mr. Rohde's name was included in the caption, all was well with the judges. Congrats, Andrew.
