Caption contest celebrates Wilt Chamberlain and his night of 100 points

This week’s caption contest celebrates one of the most recognizable sports photos ever taken: Wilt “The Stilt” Chamberlain holding up a piece of paper with “100” written on it after just torching the Knicks for 100 points. Wilt took 63 shots that night, making 36 of them. He also went 28-32 from the free throw line. And we thought Allen Iverson shot a lot.

This week marked the 48th anniversary of that fateful evening that I’m sure those covering Wilt would love to forget. Allegedly only around 4,000 fans were in Hershey, Pennsylvania to see Wilt’s performance which remains a league record to this day. That particular game was not televised.

To ease all of you into this caption contest, Wilt probably has several other, off-the-court records that remain untouched to this day.

So, sportschump readers, have at it. And please remember to keep it tasteful as my mom is reading.

    In response to your chatroll comment. And Jesse Ventura is no dumb a_s like Sen Jim Bunning (D-Ky) ! What type of a moron holds up legislation in the Senate to allegedly make a point over government overspending , when he has participated in legislative bills that’ve added in excess of a $ 1 trillion ($1,000,000,000,000) to the national debt over the course of his political career ?

  2. Wow, I thought my original entry couldn’t be touched but Jon and Aer came up with two GREAT ones!

    Very nicely done, fellas.

    Jonny, you still going to Gator home games? Might I ask why? Are we in or out?

    That’s not the situation I’m speaking of. I don’t know whether or not you’re aware but the Feds and Justice Dept are investigating a doctor by the name of Anthony Galea . He’s a well known doctor who’s worked with a number of athletes , in particular MLB players and a number of NFL stars.

    Well recently an assistant of his was caught with HGH that was bring back across the border into the US. Cause for concern ? Yes ! The drugs were not prescribed and they were allegedly to be vended to athletes in the sports arena . Amongst athletes who’ve been a patient of Galea’s , has been Woods, A-Rod , Mets’ players Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes. Galea may well be indicted and implicated in the illegal transportation of not only HGH but also the drug Actovegin. The latter is a derivative of calf’s blood and is used in the speeding up in athletes recovery. It’s not been sanctioned for approval by the FDA in the US. Side effects are said to be damaging.

    See my most recent piece in which I detail much of this out.
    If this ball of wax unravels and Woods is implicated in anyway. Then he might as well move to Timbuktu !

    Still of the opinion that Ben Roethlisberger is innocent of nothing more than having consensual sex with that female in Lake Tahoe ? Bear in mind that there’s now been a second allegation made against him this time be a female in Atlanta , Georgia. This is no longer an isolated incident or one where he’s being wrongfully accused ! One incident maybe but two ? C’mon now !

    Georgia College Student Claims Ben Roethlisberger Assaulted Her

    A college student has accused Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting early Thursday morning at a Georgia nightclub. Police say the alleged assault of a 20-year-old female occurred in the Capital City bar in Milledgeville.

    Roethlisberger’s agent, Ryan Tollner, said that the quarterback had spoken to police about “an allegation” after “Ben and his friends met a group of women and everyone mingled together throughout the evening.”

    Ben has not yet been charged with anything. Last year, he was also the subject of a sexual abuse claim in which a woman claimed that he raped her. Roethlisberger denies the allegations and has countersued.

    Let’s put this way , I wouldn’t at all be surprised if Big Ben ended up on a sexual predator’s lit alongside an ex Catholic priest. That’s how low things could well get for the guy.

    And then another question , bearing in mind both Tank Johnson and Pacman Jones have been suspended for far less than the accusations now being leveled at Roethlisberger . What should Roger Goodell now actually do ? Leave it in the hands of the state law enforcement (GBI) in Georgia ? Or suspend him ’til their investigation is done. Bear in mind this is the second such allegation made against him and the civil suit trial is in the process of going ahead. Need I remind you that the victim there Andrea McNulty (first victim) filed her complaint in a timely manner concerning that incident. But it Ben’s friends at the resort who tried to delay & waylay the whole entire process.

    I don’t know that the Gators will get in. At best they might make it through as an at large contestant. But to my mind they need to do well as in win the SEC tournament or at least make the final four, there.

    If not, then expect Donovan and the Gators get an invite to the NIT . I know it’s a step down but at least it’s something isn’t it ?

    Got to take ‘Buster’ (dog) for a walk as the both of need the exercise and I can scout the ‘talent’ in Winter Haven. The girlfriend is staying at her place this weekend up in Orlando. She’s got an early morning appointment on Monday with a client.

    Ah the joys of being a bachelor once again !

  11. Did my cousin just say p*ssy on my website.

    He used to be such a nice boychick.

    I’ll keep you posted on the traffic bump.

    Thanks for the love.

  12. Al… does that mean that Big Ben will have to go door to door like John Turturro as the Jesus in the Big Lebowski telling everyone he’s a sexual predator?

    That’s a lot of confessional autographs.

  13. Al… did you just say ‘talent’ and ‘Winter Haven’ in the same sentence? That might be the first time anyone’s ever said that.

    Ohhhh, boy am I going to be in trouble with my Polk County readers.
