Six-Word Caption Contest #11: Are You Ready For Some Football?

Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2nd has the makings of an epic match-up. Are you pulling for the AFC’s Denver Broncos—with the NFL’s number one offense, led by veteran quarterback and league MVP, Peyton Manning? Or are you rooting for the NFC’s Seattle Seahawks—led by newbie quarterback Russell Wilson, with the league’s number one defense and headline-grabbing All-Pro cornerback, Richard Sherman? With over 100 million viewers worldwide, maybe the game matters not and you simply watch for the half-time show and the commercials. After all, as we are reminded by ESPN Magazine, it’s been a decade since “a nipple changed the Super Bowl.”

We want to hear your six words about the upcoming Super Bowl. Use the tasty photo above as inspiration for this week’s Six-Word Caption Contest. We’ll share our Top Six favorites here on the Six-Word Contest blog and via social media. A personalized key tag (pictured, below) with the six words of his or her choice will go to our first place winner, thanks to our friends at the hip design company, Various Projects.

This week’s Six-Word Caption Contest runs through Friday, January 31st, 2014, 5pm EST. Submit your entry in the comments below, on our Facebook page, or tag us on Twitter or Tumblr.
