WIIM Summer Photo Caption Contest 2015: It's a Desert Out There

Now that the Detroit Red Wings have taken care of most of their offseason business, I feel like the air has just been let out of the offseason. It's really deflating to know that we're about to enter the month of August, where our sustenance will consist of hours of Pavel Datsyuk on Youtube. There's so much pressure building, just waiting for all the excitement to blow up when hockey season finally starts.

What are you giving me that look for? Oh fine, I'll get on with it.

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.

UPDATE: Something I forgot to mention in previous weeks is that you're not limited to one entry. So have all the fun you want with these captions!

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

Yes. Yes, he did.

Please don't hurt me for taking away the one place you thought you could avoid this story. Happy captioning!
