And the winner for the most obsure costume ever goes to....

Happy Halloween!  I promise you, the costume that Craig and I have for tonight is beyond funny... but to tide you over until this fine evening, here is a picture of Craig's work costume.  Apparently, his office has never considered regulating the length of shorts that men can wear.

Those white legs mean that Craig doesn't have to wear reflectors to go trick-or-treating.

Craig is Basketball great, John "the cat" Thompson.

Oh wait?  You've never heard of him?

That's strange....  Nobody has!

John was the Point Guard for the 1929 National Championship Montana State Bobcat Basketball team.

Craig even went as far as to shave his face look like the respectable early-century college student.  Want to know more?  I can hear you screaming "NO" from this side of my computer.  But...  here it is:

John Ashworth "Cat" Thompson was an American basketball player. He won the Utah state championship with Dixie High School team and finished second in the High School National Tournament in 1925. In college, he played for 3 seasons for Montana State, during which time his team had a record of 102-11. In 1929 he won the Helms Foundation Player of the Year award and his team won Helms National Championship . He averaged 15.4 points per game when the average team scored 40 points per game. He was named All-America in 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930. He scored 1,539 points in 100 career college games he played. He was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1962.  ( From:

That's right ladies... the 21st century version is all mine!

Until the next post, I wish you more treats than tricks!
