The NFLPA Will Sell You A Player’s Face For Halloween

10.11.12 5 years ago 37 Comments

For about $12 a pop, the NFLPA is selling Halloween masks of 17 NFL players. I would phrase that as “stars” but they included Brett Keisel, who is the owner of a beard much more famous than himself. Anyway, this at once delightfully random and a little unsettling. Nevertheless, the potential for NFL-related humor is limited only by your imagination and desire to mess with others.

Let’s examine the options, shall we?


Scare rating: ****

Potential high jinx: Beyond the obvious stab spree and stupid dancing, feel free to jump on the candy of others long after they took the trouble to collect it.

Scare rating: *

Potential high jinx: Scold others about the pagan origins of the holiday while abstaining from taking candy and/or sex. Alternately, great for ironic use by the gays while touching on each other.

Scare rating: *

Potential high jinx: Get picked on by people wearing blind scab refs disguises; tell everyone dressed as a pirate that you thought about getting an eyepatch first.

Scare rating: *

Potential high jinx: Find the kid with the peanut allergy and force feed him your Snickers; wear UGGs and a dog collar; have friends litter the area with yellow flags if someone touches you.

Scare rating: ***

Potential high jinx:Tilt your head at a skewed angle all night to show off your NeckAIDS. Bring an assortment of products to each household and hector people about purchasing options. Make houses compete with each other to give you the most candy. Don’t accept until one offers $96 million in candy.

Scare rating: [No stars]

Potential high jinx: Receive the most candy because parents assume that you’re so winsome that this must be your first Halloween, you cute little tyke; ask for antique furniture in lieu of candy.

Likelihood that some kid from Herndon, Virginia wears this and paints his arms black: *************

Potential high jinx: Race in traffic because you’re indestructible with your EvoShield vest; sustain life-threatening injury; be diagnosed with “mild concussion”.

Scare rating: **

Potential high jinx: Drop every piece of candy placed in your hands; laugh as people complain that you’re being phased out of Halloween.

Scare rating: **

Scare rating: **

Potential high jinx: When someone opens their door to greet you, knock them over and barrel through their home breaking furniture and screaming incoherently; ghost ride a whip through the streets.

Scare rating: *

Randomness rating: ****

Potential high jinx: If you’re actually Jason Witten, you can wear this mask and people still won’t know who you are; get mask knocked off and continue to lumber for 25 yards while announcers gush over your toughness.

Scare rating: ***

Potential high jinx: Frighten the neighborhood with your terrifying shark teeth.

All right, the NFLPA isn’t selling a Catler mask. BUT THEY SHOULD! Still, you should be able to procure a reasonable facsimile anywhere chintzy costumes are sold.
