Arenas masks, Snyder costumes, and more

It's possible D.C. sports will never have a more fruitful Halloween sports weekend. I was hanging out with a two-and-a-half year old ladybug in Western New York, but I thought I'd pass along a few images. Anyone else, send 'em in.

The Wizards played their home opener on the treasured Saturday night Halloween, and gave away 10,000 Gilbert Arenas masks to boot. (Of course, if something had gone wrong and Gilbert had been hurt again, tens of thousands of Burmese children would have been Agent Zero this year.) This look via @cathyadriani.

There were at least three costumed-themed Redskins jokes circulating this weekend:

1) Want to really scare your neighbors? Dress like the Redskins.
2) Apparently the Redskins decided to dress like the Giants and go to Philly for Halloween.
3) Did you hear what V. Cerrato dressed up like this year? An NFL general manager!

Still, this image from a trick-or-treater might have been the best Skins Halloween gag I've seen.

Speaking of scary, check out this fan sign at the Caps game? I mean, we're joking about how people could get poked in the head with signs at FedEx Field, but this sign could legitimately cause someone's throat to be slashed or something. Public menace, these two. I recommend beheading. Image via CapitalsOutsider.

I've already heard several reports of fans dressed up as Redskins ownership this weekend. Here's the only two images I've seen, both via @HogsHaven.

UPDATE: Just got this image of Snyder and Zorn, from Reader Timothy.

Mark Ein flipped the script; instead of a goofy kid dressed like an owner, here we have an owner dressed like a goofy kid. The Washington Kastles owner was spotted at the Wiz game dressed like the Will Ferrell character from Semi-Pro.

This technically doesn't have a Halloween hook, but dang if it didn't make me snort. Comrades Brandt and Chris are to blame; they also made another poster, which can be seen here.

This image of Joe Jacoby was unearthed last week by the Skins Blog, but I still wanted to give it some more online love. Because I love it.

And as we enter November, let's all bear in mind that there are two D.C. teams that are legitimate threats to advance more than one round into the playoffs this season. That alone could make this a sports season worth remembering. Images via On Frozen Blog and Bullets Forever.

I must admit that it was nice to get away from the Redskins for the bye week –- because our Mondays have been overwhelmingly gloomy and depressing ever since the start of football season.

It's unfortunate that the team didn't use their time more productively -- to do such things as install a few new plays, work out a few offensive linemen, pick up a free agent quarterback, or anything else that might have improved their competitive position.

So as bad as some might think the first part of the season has been, we can only expect it to be even worse in the weeks ahead. Not that anyone at Redskin Park appears to get a damn about any of that.

The one bit of news that did come out during the bye week was the naming of Snyder's head lawyer David Donovan as the chief operating officer for the team

So in essence, the Redskins have basically promoted the guy who brought you the embarrassment of suing little old widows for breach of contract because they can no longer afford season tickets -- along with the prohibition on signs and critically worded tee shirts at the stadium –- and who knows what besides?

So all in all, Redskin fans can continue to expect not only more of the same -- but even worse!
