Christian Ponder And His Wife Samantha Won Halloween With Their ‘The Sandlot’ Couples Costume

No, this isn’t Christian Ponder. The costumes aren’t THAT good.

As of yesterday, US women’s soccer players Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux dressing as Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke respectively was the clear winner in the sports-related Halloween costume contest. Sure, the costume is ubiquitous as f*ck, but who’s gonna top it, the baseball-playing Jamaican bobsled team?

How about Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and his wife Samantha dressed as Squints and Wendy Peffercorn from ‘The Sandlot?’ Yeah, that’ll do it.

Achievement unlocked: get your wife to dress up like Wendy Peffercorn.

I think the best thing a Halloween costume can do (besides, I don’t know, being scary) is hit the sweet spot between easy recognition and charming semi-obscurity. Christian Ponder nailed it. Unless Heidi Klum dresses up as one of the baseball guys from The Warriors, I think the Ponders have got it in the bag.

Ugh. Little pervert.
