Grizzly Bear Blues Create-a-Caption #7 Winner!

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

The Battle of Thermopylae

Congratulations to SamHHH!

To save anyone who doesn't know what this is the extra few seconds of Googling, The Battle of Thermopylae is the famed ancient battle between the Greek Spartans and the Persian Empire, depicted in the well known film and comic series, 300. To save anyone further Googling, Koufos is Greek and Haddadi is Iranian (formerly known as Persian). This equals an insta-win for newcomer SamHHH in what is probably the most poignant and creative caption thus far in GBB history. I tip all my hats to you, good sir or madam.

Kevin also had another stellar showing with the following shot at everyone's favorite, overpaid ex-Grizzly:

KK to HH: I guess he doesn't need glasses when he's that close to the rim.

For those of you that are unaware, Rudy Gay underwent Lasik surgery this offseason to repair his horrible vision for which he never wore his corrective contact lenses while playing for the Grizzlies. Once again, brilliance.

Tomorrow we have Keith G. Edwards Jr. taking over the Saturday Night Shuffle, and I'm confident it will be a post worth all of our attention. For the next Create-a-Caption, we may see the return of the frightening Leuer picture that teased a few of you last Sunday morning. I'm definitely looking forward to the coming NBA season so that our database can be filled with a new, larger selection of Leuer, Davis, Joerger and Tayshaun photos.
