We're barely into the double digits of July, and now that Detroit Red Wings development camp is over, meaningful hockey feels like eons away. The pace of a lackluster "free agent frenzy" has slowed from a crawl to a stand-still, and the trades everyone was talking about a week ago are starting to fade.

But that's why we have a photo caption contest! (When I remember that it's on Wednesdays and not Fridays.)

If you're new to the WIIM Summer Photo Caption contest, it's very simple. That banner picture at the top? Write a comment about it. Give it a caption. Use words. Use pictures. Use .gifs. Use Microsoft Paint. Use whatever you can come up with to create the best caption you can. Make it funny. Make it clever. Make it memorable. Make it fun.

Now we get to the really fun part. You'll see a lot of other people captioning the photo. If you like what they did, give it a rec! We'll be doing this weekly, so whoever has the most recs by 11:59 P.M. on Tuesday will be declared the winner in next week's caption contest post. And since we're so generous here at Winging It in Motown, we've even decided to let you keep the pride you gain if you're lucky enough to win.

And remember: Staff can and are highly encouraged to participate, but only the commenters are eligible for the fleeting internet fame.

Who's this week's winner of fleeting internet fame? Come on down, Drumbum87!

In Toronto they have a drink called "the Jersey"

It’s made with blue curacao and maple syrup; you always throw it on ice.

A time-honored Maple Leaf tradition, to be sure.

Assuming I don't make the same mistake next week, we'll be back to Wednesdays next time. Until then, happy captioning!
