A Team Spirited Halloween

 How do you show your team spirit on October 31st? 

A football player's girlfriend sent me this photo of the gorgeous job she
did showing her spirit for the Missouri Tigers
A friend in Birmingham forwarded me this photo from a shop in Alabama.
Dueling pumpkins, anyone?  In case you were wondering this friend leans toward WDE! has a large array of team spirited decorations

Love the superhero costume!
And the obligatory gaudy Halloween decoration!  love it!

Here's a fantastic tip from Gameday Style fan, Laura Shank Sobieck, who roots for the Oklahoma State Cowboys.  She buys her orange and black tailgate serving and decorating gear during the sales post Halloween.  Brilliant!

Now, a cute website for Halloween mascot costumes for your little one:

My sons and I perused a jack-o-lantern gallery on Bleacher Report***.  Even though our boys are partial to a team not displayed here, they had some favorites:

Ohio Stadium

Baltimore Ravens

***Family friendly disclosure: just be alert if you go over to Bleacher Report with your kids.  While they have some entertaining football content, they also attract readers with some racy (yet fully clothed) 
photos of women on the sidebars of the webpage.
