Morning Look: A Zorny Halloween

When I was a kid, Halloween meant stirrups and eye black. I'm pretty sure I dressed as Cal Ripken every year from about age 5 to about age 23. With my statuesque pre-pubescent build (yeah, that includes at age 23), I was pretty much a dead ringer for Cal.

Anyhow, when I took my costume-less daughter out for her first real Halloween this year (her costume: toddler in street clothes), I was hoping to see the youth of D.C. embracing its sporting heroes. I figured I'd see at least seven or eight Doctor Do Itch Bigs, plus your random assortment of Kevin Sheehan/Doc Walker duos, your dreadlocked Chris Hortons, your chunky Washington Nationals, your LeBron Jameses with arms perpetually raised up to the sky in wonderment, bitterly complaining as a bearded DeShawn Stevenson counterpart ran up the sidewalk not feeling his face.

But the elementary schoolers of Chevy Chase didn't go there. I saw one Gilbert Arenas, one Clinton Portis, one Santana Moss, and one non-ironic LeBron James. Luckily, longtime reader Scott sent along several pics of his friend John, who decided it was a Zorn Star kind of year. Not a lot of distinguishing characteristics to the Zorn Star, but A+++ for making a go of it. See also: actual Redskins dressing up.

Any other D.C. sports Halloween costume pics out there? Send em along.

"But the elementary schoolers of Chevy Chase..."

There's your problem.

My neighbor (a grownup who hands out much-appreciated cups of wine to the parents of trick-or-treaters!) went as a stingy MLB team owner. Does that count?
