Scary Sports Costumes

Trick or Treat: Turning This Year’s Low Moments Into Halloween Highlights

Bill Belichick

Dr. Frankenstein was a sinister genius who created an unstoppable monster that was universally abhorred. So basically Bill Belichick. The New England Patriots coach is notoriously moody. In fact, the Journal conducted a study last season and counted only seven times where he was seen smiling in a news conference. [That’s actually true.] The best part is that Belichick is a way more cost-effective costume for your youngster than Frankenstein. All you really need to do is find an old gray hoodie and cut off the sleeves—and maybe add a headset for good measure. It’s a good idea to target the houses giving away raisins to make sure the smile-count doesn’t get above seven.

As SCTV’s Count Floyd used to say, Oooo . . . that’s scary, kids.

Special Bay State bonus: Tip O’Neill’s 3-D House of Representatives.



Oooo . . . that’s funny, kids. (At least we think so.)

And Count Floyd makes a great Halloween costume.
