You know what, Delonte? Go into my desk drawer — no, not THAT one, the one on the right; you know never to go into THAT one, right, buddy? — and take out a gold star to put on the Great Job! Board. You deserve it.
What did Delonte accomplish that's got him feeling so pleased? Best caption wins the complete "gold star system" learning experience. Good luck.
NOTE: There were a lot of strong captions that managed to be phenomenally juvenile without being, y'know, stereotypical and the worst. For that, dear readers, I thank you. You've fortified my faith in humanity.
Runner-up, Sam Orme: Despite Coach Del Negro's best efforts, Blake Griffin remains the staring contest champion of the universe.
Second runner-up, Jones6: "You're face-guarding totally wrong, Blake. Like me, see? This is how you do it."
It's a banner day here at Camp C-a-C, because we've got TWO Special Commendations in Ruling to award in the Repurposed Movie Quotes That Made Me Laugh But Did Not Merit Award Placement Above The Actual Jokes Division. (Always a highly competitive division.)
Kudos to Brian B., who invoked "Wet Hot American Summer," which is always a strong choice:
"Yeah, you made the shot, but you are in charge of the post-game bug juice, rook. DO YOU KNOW WHERE THE POWDER PACKETS ARE?!"
And similar plaudits to Tyler for doing what no one else ever has: Turning Vinny Del Negro into R. Lee Ermey.
Gunnery Sergeant Del Negro: How tall are you, private?
Private Griffin: Sir, six-foot-ten, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Del Negro: Six-foot-ten, I didn't know they stacked [EXPLETIVE] that high!
