Happy Halloween Husker fans!
Even in this nightmare of a season we can take a time out from the misery of mediocrity to suggest some last minute Halloween costumes for Husker luminaries and the not so luminous.
Here we go.
Larry the Cable Guy as Don Corlene
You need an athletic director whacked before the season even reaches the halfway point? Just have this fella send a tweet.
Shawn Eichorst as the Out-of-Work Shermanator
We’ve made the Eichorst/Shermanator comparison before but this year we’re taking it to the next level of obscurity now that Shawn is out of a job. You probably don’t remember this but a few years ago a Redditor experienced the harsh realities of Hollywood when the actor who will be forever known as American Pie’s Shermanator played the role of her waiter at a Santa Monica sushi restaurant.
Bob Diaco as Mr. Blonde
Bob got an early jump on Halloween when he stepped off the bus at Purdue already wearing his Reservoir Dogs costume. If only he threatened to cut off a few Blackshirt ears at halftime, the Huskers might have won by more than a single point.
Mike Riley as a Retiree Moonlighting as an Uber Driver
For new retirees who aren’t quite ready to settle down, becoming an Uber driver is quickly becoming a favored option. You can be your own boss and set your own schedule so you’ll never miss out on your grandkids’ events and it’s a great way to get out in the community and interact with a wide variety of folks. Plus, Mike probably has the Riley family Prius paid off so there would be very low overhead to go into business for himself.
Scott Frost as Tom Osborne
We can dream, right?
