On Halloween, several Broncos players reflected on their favorite costumes from childhood or recent memory. With practice tomorrow, the consensus in the locker room was that this evening would be a quiet one, but that didn’t stop players from thinking about previous years’ costumes and about how they would dress up if they were going to.
One player with a special Halloween memory is safety Rahim Moore, who recalls getting a pleasant surprise from actor John Travolta while trick-or-treating in Beverly Hills one year as a child.
“He ran out of candy and he gave me a $100 bill,” Moore remembers. “I literally just left. I didn’t tell anybody.”
Below is a list of a number of players’ favorite costumes and ideas of how they would dress up if they could.
Cornerback Tony Carter: Superman and Leonardo the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
Fullback Chris Gronkowski: Army Soldier, wrestler Mankind, SpongeBob SquarePants (along with his brother Rob, who dressed as Ivan Drago from Rocky IV)
Running back Ronnie Hillman: Flava Flav (if he celebrated, which he hasn’t in the past)
Tight end Virgil Green: The Hulk (if he celebrated, which he hasn’t in the past)
Safety David Bruton: Ironman
“I’m talking about a legit Ironman suit,” he smiled. “Not the one that’s just drawings, but little plastic details to it. I’d be all-out. It would take a lot of work. I’d probably have to start working on it this year for next year.”
Tight end Joel Dreessen: The Ultimate Warrior
“My wife helped me,” he said. “I had face paint, a wig, the cool streamers, wore some spandex. I stayed in character for most of the night, I was pumping up the crowd and shaking the ropes and putting on wrestling moves.”
Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson: Batman
Defensive end Ben Garland: Lumberjack
Safety Rahim Moore: Leonardo the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
Safety Duke Ihenacho: Construction worker or Superman
Cornerback Mario Butler: The red Power Ranger
