Characters from Cirque du Soleil's "Totem" show threw out the first pitch Thursday before the San Diego Padres/New York Mets game at Citi Field. It was definitely, ummm, colorful.

We see characters on the baseball field, but we don't often see characters like this. A perfect chance, we thought, for you to create-a-caption.

So have at it, amateur Internet copywriters of the world. How should this caption read? No need to contain your jokes to the Mets, either. Baseball's a big game. Though, we don't blame you, if you want to make Mets jokes.

Follow the jump for winners from our last C-a-C, featuring a joyful R.A. Dickey.
