I'm bringing back the more official photo caption contests.

A little evening morsel for you sad souls who have evidently nothing better to do on a Saturday night.  I wonder how many of you, and I mean civilians, not journalists, would be bothered to see information in a photo caption that is not duplicated in the associated article.  Let me explain.  One of the things drummed in to copy editors as we labor over captions is not to merely describe what is obvious in the image....

My business is located at 309 Main St., in Laurel. Outback Leather is a one-stop leather shop. We do everything from custom fitting boots and saddles, to the horse and rider, to while-you-wait shoe repair. Outback Leather has been on Main St. for over 20 years, 15 years in the formally Gayer's Saddlery Building. I just wanted to thank the Laurel Leader for its article, "20th century marathons found a starting line in Laurel" (April 4). It was very generous of the Leader to put a big picture of my building that covers almost half the page, and then give credit to another business, instead of a business that has been running for 20 years, as the building in the background.

There was a photo caption in the Sunday Sun article ("Landmark Measures for Maryland" April 7) about Senate President Mike Miller, House Speaker Michael E. Busch and Gov. Martin O'Malley. The caption stated that "When the three of us are on the same page," according to the governor, it would result in the passage of the governor's "sweeping agenda. " In reality, it's more like a steamroller agenda. In reference to the so-called sweeping agenda, yes, the residents of Maryland who initially trusted the Three Ms have been "swept" under the carpet.

Last week's caption contest got some good responses. Not too bad for having symphony tickets as a prize. Let's keep it going. Come up with a funny, clever and clean caption for this remarkable photo of Ravens head coach John Harbaugh showing tight end Davon Drew how hard he expects him to practice in training camp for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Maryland State Fair. The deadline is Thursday at noon.

This is Netherlands cricketer Ryan Ten Doeschate. He has a jockstrap on his head. I have no idea why, but he does. So let's have some fun with this one. This photo from AFP/Getty's Manan Vatsyayana is perfect for a photo caption challenge, which is good because I have two pairs of tickets to this weekend's 2010 Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic to give away to our winning captioners. I received about 20 submissions for last week's challenge . Let's see if we can top that total this week with some clever and clean captions for this photo of a jock wearing his jock.

The Orioles have been busy during their first spring training camp under manager Buck Showalter. But the Orioles' infield quartet of Mark Reynolds, Derrek Lee, J.J. Hardy, and Brian Roberts found some time on Sunday to stare off into space (well, unless they were all lackadaisically chasing after the same pop-up). This random photo from The Baltimore Sun's Karl Merton Ferron demands another photo caption challenge, and I'm hoping I get more responses this time around than I did two weeks ago . And that's where you guys come in, and I know you will come through with some good ones this time around.

A photo caption in Wednesday's Sun said state Sen. John A. Giannetti Jr. had been reprimanded by the legislative ethics committee. In fact, the committee admonished him against sponsoring bills involving his employer's clients. The committee did not issue a formal reprimand, as it has done in other cases.
