I don't get it...what is wrong with the caption for the picture you provided (AJ's HR swing)? Unless the Tribune changed it, I don't see what the big deal is. Here is what the caption reads:

A.J. Pierzynski connects on his go-ahead three-run homer in the ninth inning…

Go look at the rest of the pictures in the link by click "Next" in the upper right hand corner.

There's ten photos.

Yep, some of the captions were bogus.

The bizarre captions are:

"…doesn't grandstand at all after he hits it…" (showing AJ flipping his bat)

"The Wrigley Field grounds crew cleans the field after fans threw trash to express their displeasure with the not-very-good product the Cubs put on the field." (***** at this)

"A.J. Pierzynski and Bobby Jenks do some sort of mutual condescension head-pat after Jenks showed Cubs fans how a closer is supposed to do his job." ("mutual condescension"? :?:)

Obviously, someone was having fun at his job yesterday. I'm just surprised they didn't also show Jock Jones' bat-flip and then his look at the Sox's dugout as he rounded first base earlier in the game. Shocking.

I love how the trash throwing is justified since the team stinks :rolleyes: I read even baseballs got loose, then Jacque Jones starts getting hit with them, but instead of calling the fans out, they sweep it under the rug

I think he/she probably meant "congratulation." Which, of course, would still have been incorrect usage; it's "congratulatory head-pat." Losers.

Dont forget the one about the FOX announcers giving the player of the game to Ramirez at the beginning of the 9th. :D:

Someone ought to get fired after writing captions like this. Condescension? Yeah the White Sox are superior and they deserve to show it after taking the Scrubs crap for YEARS. Also, this my be the cubune's arrogant way of assuming that White Sox fans aren't intelligent enough to understand what these words mean.

I got news for them. This is more of an example that they can't handle the fact that:

THE TIDE HAS TURNED!! WE ARE BECOMING CHICAGO'S TEAM NOW!!

That's why they're printing sour grapes. PERIOD.

I emailed him about this one -- I've never done that before, but this was just too much. I got back an autoresponse saying he's out right now. If he ever responds I'll post.

Yep. That and the AJ caption are completely embarrassing.

You know, I appreciate the fact that he actually comes here to to face us and responds to our emails.

What I don't appreciate is the fact that when he does so, he takes us as fools and literaly tries to rationalize and justify why published captions like these, from our ****ing newspaper, are completely unbiased and legitimate.

**** that and the Tribune's bull. Why anyone would continue to pay for this trash is beyond me.

Well, that right there is the meaning of "condescension." Freudian slip by the Tribsters in that caption, d'ya think?

Some of those captions are pure crap. Let me ask Mr. Knue and the rest of his Tribster ilk: Can we expect pictures in the future of Carlos Zambrano and all his gesticulating, crotch grabbing, taking his hat off and pointing to God, yelling at other players, etc. with captions saying things like "Carlos Zambrano doesn't showboat at all, and has his emotions under control, as usual" or how about "Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano demonstrates what a class act he is, and not at all an embarrassment to himself or his team".
