Results tagged “Caption Contest” from California


As promised, we are set to announce the winners of last week's caption contest right here on the Bear Blog. After much deliberation, our decision has been made.

The following comment, submitted by wevegottheaxe68 was deemed hilarious, but after some in depth investigative journalism, sources have confirmed to us that this particular person is indeed a current student athlete at Cal.

While his entry, "Nathan Adrian doesn't need tiger blood, he needs only Bear Blood to fuel his domination" was thoroughly enjoyable, NCAA compliance does not allow for current offensive lineman Mark Brazinski to be rewarded the championship prize.

Instead, GoBears91's caption, "To be fair, in the future Cal should be made to swim up hill" will take home the grand prize of $25 to the faculty club here on campus because the absurdity of the caption is equal to the absurdity of the Bears' margin of victory.

The two runner-ups, who will receive an official Cal pennant, were Ken Go Bears, with "The Cal Men's Swim Team BEARly has any competition! Nathan Adrian BLUE past the competition for the GOLD!" and Troy Smith - and I hope this is actually Troy Smith - who delivered some enjoyable dry humor with this: "Either we are really far behind, or this is just embarrassing. Go Bears."

The three winners will be notified by email. Thank you to all who participated. If you didn't win this time around, fear not - plenty more giveaways are still to come on the Bear Blog.


Happy Monday, everyone. Thanks to all who participated in last week's caption contest. We'll be announcing the winners at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, so stay tuned.

Three different prizes will be going out - a $25 gift certificate to the Faculty Club here on campus for the first prize and a felt Cal pennant to two runner-ups.


Here's your opportunity to contribute to the Bear Blog and win some free Cal swag - simply leave a comment listing what you think the caption to the photo below should be.

This shot was taken by swimmer Nick Trowbridge at the NCAA Championships in Minnesota last month. You'll notice that senior Nathan Adrian is completely destroying the competition in the 400 medley relay.

Adrian (freestyle) served as the anchor to a relay team that included Guy Barnea (back), Damir Dugonjic (breast) and Tom Shields (butterfly). While Adrian brought it home, the roar of "roll on you Bears" echoed from the more than 100 alumni and fans present at the meet.

So have at it and be creative. We have three prizes to give out - one for the first place winner and two runners-up awards. Let the best man or woman win.
