Spooky Sports Spectacular

Updated: November 8, 2013

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. 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.

  1. 2.       Stephen A. Smith as Luda-crisstephen

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.

  1. 3.     joker  Skip Bayless as the Joker.

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?

  1. 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).

  1. oscar5.       Chris Carter as Oscar the Grouch.

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.

  1. 6.       Brittney Griner as Big Bird.

She stands 6-foot-8, with the basketball skills of Larry Bird. So, she easily could play the character Big-Bird. Besides, she is only one who could fit the custom.bigbird

  1. 7.       UNC’s basketball Head Coach Roy Williams as Huckleberry Hound.

This is self-explanatory. Seriously, just look at the picture. Nuff said.huckle

  1. 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.

  1. 9.       Monday Night Football Announcer Jon Gruden as Chucky.

This blonde hair, blue-eyed demon is known for cutting up-potential NFL QBs during his QB Boot Camps.jon-gruden-as-chucky

  1. 10.   Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning as Frankenstein.

Don’t deny it, you seen his huge head, big forehead, and stiff neck.peyton manning
