    Happy Halloween: Team USA #ThrowbackThursday photos

    Happy Halloween: Team USA #ThrowbackThursday photos

    ICYMI:
    Trick or Treat! Olympians scare away the competition
    Oct 23, 5:15pm EDT
    http://www.nbcolympics.com/photos/tr...ay-competition

    Must-see then-and-now pics of:
    • Gao
    • the Shibutanis
    • Wagner
    • Davis
    • Molly, Max, and Maddie Aaron
    Each has evidently loved a good costume from a very early age.
    (Their images are mixed in with those of many other Team USA athletes from other winter sports.)

    Tip o' the hat to @NickMcCarvel.

    Having just provided chocolates to a group of trick-or-treaters at my door, I was completely in the mood for these delightful photos. I scrolled down while the aroma of peanut butter cups drifted from my candy supply.

    Darn, I should not have limited the thread title to Team USA.

    (Young Moir is in skates, but maybe for a #hoppyHalloween performance?? )

    I just learned a very hard lesson: when trick-or-treating kids with cherubic faces ask how many they can have, never treat them like adults and say "as many as you want". The little buggers will take your words literally.

    And another one from this year, ICYMI:

    I think Jeremy Ten @j3r3bear won the prize for "inside" skating humor:
    So I thought I'd take my #WinnieThePooh costume 1 step further and be #YuzuruHanyu's tissue box. @yuzuruhanyu_bot @hanyuspooh #HappyHalloween #TrickOrTreat #FigureSkatingReference #FigureSkating #Achoo #HumanTissueBox

    BTW, lots of Shpilband's skaters in Novi dressed up for Halloween. (Sorry, don't have the photo links at my fingertips.)
