Photo Caption Contest on RoadbikeREVIEW??(36 posts)

Photo Caption Contest on RoadbikeREVIEW??gregg
Sep 28, 2001 8:53 AM
Hey Guys,

Given Tigs post and all, do you guys think it would be good to have a photo caption contest on RoadbikeREVIEW?? We run one on MtbREVIEW and it seems pretty popular, but my only concern on running one for Roadbike would be that sometimes these kinds of contests draw....uh..."inappropriate" comments and things sometimes have the tendency to get out of hand.

Of course, we would set some guidelines and with you alls help, we would keep it clean.

What do you think?

Thanks for the input.

p.s. we would give the photo submitter a RoadbikeREVIEW t-shirt and the caption winner would get a t-shirt, cycling cap, and socks (sorry, still no jerseys).
sorry MB1, no waterbottles (nm)gregg

Oh well, it would probably still be popular without them. nmMB1

"With you all's help."

And you're from further South than Kentucky too, because we would say it "With your all's help."
In Texas it's "ya'll" (1 syllable!) -NMTig

My wife is from South Jersey. Pennsville area. Just wondering...

She says "water" like wo-der (the "wo" sounds almost like "wool")!

about 9 miles due east of Princeton. Can't say I have much of an accent though. I've moved around alot most of my life. I do pick up a nice southern drawl after a few glasses of wine.

Where you from, son??? I live in Northern Ky across the great divide from Cincinnati.

Ah, the Mighty Ohio. I know you think it's your all's river, but actually we call ourselves the River City here in Louisville so I guess it's our all's.

That's definitely a stylish cap you guys have there, Gregg. I'll be wearing the socks though.

I vote yes to the photo caption contest.
