Clever Caption Contest: Diggin’ That Didgeridoo!

Hey there, readers! What a wild weekend, eh? The Cardinals are flying to their first Super Bowl ever, while the Steelers are going for the Big Game six-pack. As such, you’d think today’s SbB Clever Caption Contest would be capturing a conference championship moment.

Or that’s what the official press release says. But we all know there’s just gotta be a better explanation for this. So, submit your suggestions into the comments section linked below. Winner will be announced in the end-of-the-day recap.

Anyway, good luck & good writing!
