Phanatic World Cup cartoon caption contest

With Team USA's dramatic victory over Ghana in their first World Cup match, it seems every American is suddenly a soccer fan. FiveThirtyEight’s World Cup predictions now give the United States a 63 percent chance of advancing, up from 33 percent on Monday morning. But they still need at least a point on Sunday against Portugal. More importantly, what will fans do once the World Cup and NBA Draft are over, and all we've got until September are the... gulp... Phillies?

With Team USA's dramatic victory over Ghana in their first World Cup match, it seems every American is suddenly a soccer fan. FiveThirtyEight’s World Cup predictions now give the United States a 63 percent chance of advancing, up from 33 percent on Monday morning. But they still need at least a point on Sunday against Portugal. 

More importantly, what will fans do once the World Cup and NBA Draft are over, and all we've got until September are the... gulp... Phillies? 

Submit your best ideas in the comments below, and use our cool Disqus commenting system to up-vote the captions you think should win (works better than telling me the ones I pick are terrible). You can tweet me suggestions, too - @RobTornoe. I'll pick the best and announce the results on Sunday.

Check out previous winners here.
