A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
Spooky Sports Spectacular
Even though Halloween is over, we, at Blackathlete.com, have decided to extend the so-called holiday for one more week by having our own little costume party. No masks are necessary. So, come as you are.
- 1. Sammy Watkins is Lil Wayne.
Clemson’s dynamic wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who is destined to be a first round draft pick in this year’s NFL draft, easily could have gone trick-or-treating as Louisiana-born rapper Lil Wayne. No, mask or wig is necessary. Just, add a couple of ugly facial tattoos.
This ESPN’s commentator has a vocabulary that is extensive as the Atlanta-based rapper and actor. Plus, they both look like they had the same daddy. I am so disrespectful for saying that.
Bayless is always creating some type of controversy with his commentary. And with the long-chin, and silly grind, the Jokes on you Jack. Or, should I say Skip?
- 4. Kansas City Chief’s Head Coach Andy Reid as Muppets Swedish Chef.
Honestly, if you put Andy Reid in a Chef uniform, he would look exactly like the Swedish Chef. Besides, he already has that stupid-looking mustache. But, I can’t hate on Andy. Why? Because, he has served up a can-of-whup ass on the league, especially with the Chiefs being the only undefeated team in the NFL at (9-0).
On the field, he was known for his trashing-talking while with the Minnesota Vikings. Plus, with those big bushy eye brows and grumpy attitude, Carter is the perfect person to dump on sub-par wide receivers. Even his partner in crime, Randy Moss, can get dumped on as well.
- 6. Brittney Griner as Big Bird.
- 7. UNC’s basketball Head Coach Roy Williams as Huckleberry Hound.
- 8. Duke’s Coach K. as Freddy Kruger.
Since this Hall of Fame coach represents the Devil, he is the perfect person to play this horror-film villain. Why? Because, he constantly gives Carolina fans nightmares, especially on Franklin Street.
- 9. Monday Night Football Announcer Jon Gruden as Chucky.
- 10. Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning as Frankenstein.
