It’s That Time Of Year

Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson isn’t the only one excited for tomorrow night. Here are 75 other photos of athletes – everyone from Michael Jordan (in four different outfits!) to Tom Brady (dressed as Jim McMahon) – getting in the Halloween spirit.

Speaking of Tom Brady

The results are in for yesterday’s poll about whether it’s fair to criticize Brady for his Cowardly Lion Halloween costume. As of the time of this writing (9:11 a.m. on Wednesday), 14,744 people (84.3%) say Brady can wear whatever he wants, with 2,803 voters (15.8%) saying he should be embarrassed.

In NBA News

There was so much going on yesterday, especially with that important Tom Brady poll, that I barely got to mention the start of the NBA season. SI has its annual “Behind Enemy Lines” piece, in which anonymous scouts discuss the strengths and weaknesses of all 30 teamsCarmelo Anthony and Charles Barkley continued their underrated feud  … The Sixers are a 9,999-1 shot to win the championship … A general manager for one team admitted (anonymously) that his team needs to tank this season for long-range success. And find time to read Adrian Wojnarowski’s piece about how Clippers owner Donald Sterling nearly sabotaged his own team.

Lovely Lady Of The Day

Jimmy had an enormous crush on Lisalla Montenegro, so I was going to avoid using her as LLOD. But then her fiance, C.J. Wilson, shot these great photos of her for Esquire and that plan went out the window.

Any time you can do more things the way Jimmy did should. Better column today. 


None of those pups look too pleased about this canine version of waterboarding. The possible lone exception being Sanka, the Rhodesian-looking dawg who I'm not quite sure what he's supposed to be. Best guess is either Samuel L. or George Lopez. Because Kangol lid.
