NFL training camps are a grueling test of a man’s will to succeed at the ultimate athletic level. Jobs are won and lost on the torn-up turf of practice fields, as rookies try to assert themselves and crack a lineup, and aging veterans struggle to stay relevant.
It’s during these grinding times that we should all try to find some humor, and something to make us smile amid the chaos of two-a-days and 300-pound behemoths pushing tackling sleds while coaches curse and scream clichés between whistle screeches.
Seriously, though, this was just a roundabout way of saying I found some training camp pictures and I decided to attempt writing hilarious captions.
Well, that wasn’t a home run, but I’d say it was at least a solid double. Seeing eye single? Sacrifice bunt? Hit by a pitch? OK fine, I probably struck out there, but at least I fouled a couple off before I whiffed.
You think this is easy? Feel free to make your own captions in the comments, and see what you can come up with. Maybe I’ll even feature them in a future post.
