Halloween Costume Contest: Can Anyone Beat Glen Rice and Sarah Palin?

Videos by OutKick

Last night we threw a Halloween Party. There were lots of good costumes, but there was only one truly great costume. Ben Johnson, a West Virginia fan who has previously written for the site and blames me for WVU not getting the SEC bid, showed up in a costume to rival all costumes. He and his girlfriend, a doctor at Vanderbilt, brought down the house when they rolled in dressed as Glen Rice and Sarah Palin. She clearly looks a bit like Palin, especially when winking as she does in the photo, and he bought the Glen Rice jersey and modified it with both their last names on the back.

Let’s not kid ourselves, this is pure genius.

I know there are lots of other great costumes out there for this year’s Halloween so get them to me if you can. I’ve got the contact information below. In the meantime, bow down before the greatest personalized jersey since before the NFL stopped blocking Ron Mexico on Mike Vick jerseys.

Meet the throwback Palin Rice Michigan basketball jersey.

 Yes, Ben Johnson got this actual jersey made through the Michigan athletics site.

Again, pure genius.

I know there were lots of great costumes out last night so email me photos at clay.travis@gmail.com and if they’re good I’ll add them to the roster here. Already, we’ve got another all-star submission, did someone go as A.J. McCarron’s chest tattoo?

Yes, yes they did.

How about a couple as Harvey Updyke and a Toomer’s Corner Oak?

Did an Ole Miss fan dress his kids up as zombies holding anti-Houston Nutt placards? Yes, yes, he did.

More genius costumes coming? You betcha.

Happy Halloween from OKTC.
