We’ve known for awhile that Ann Schaab has great taste in men, but how about Halloween costumes?
Last weekend, Ann’s family traveled to Connecticut for a hockey tournament which her brother Matthew played in. Melissa, Ann’s mom, explained that there’s usually time to kill between games and a need to get away from the rink. So the family went to Target to try and find Halloween costumes.
Ann tried on the Left Shark costume. It was fun, but just wasn’t her.

Today is Halloween, which means it’s mandatory to wear ridiculous costumes with your favorite Russian broskis, eat Kit Kats until you hurl, and carve pumpkins.
To celebrate the holiday right, we’re asking you guys to upload your holiday-flavored photos below of your Caps-related costumes (pet or human) or Caps-carved pumpkins. Or not. Just come down to the comments with us and hang out. Let’s get a conversation going.
Awww. Here are @jlbugher‘s kids as Ovi and a Red Rocker.
Happy Halloween, RMNBers! Since you’ll likely be chomping into arsenic-laced Snickers and razor-blade candy apples tonight, it’s probably best if you peruse all the Caps-themed jack-o-lanterns and costumes now. Like every year, we asked you to send us photos of your soween-styled Halloween doo-dads, and like every year, you guys responded splendidly.
Please have a safe and happy night while celebrating death and decay.
College sweethearts Mick Klock and Haley Buckheit are huge Washington Capitals fans. Their first real date was Game One of the Caps/Rangers playoff series last year. Mick was already a huge fan of the sport, and after that night Haley was one too.
Since then, the couple, who both live in Pennsylvania, have come down to D.C. for Caps games and bought a partial season ticket plan with the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears.
Mick and Haley wanted to have a couple’s Halloween costume, preferably one that honored their favorite team. They decided to dress up as supercouple Alex Ovechkin and Maria Kirilenko. Their costumes are perfect from the blacked-out tooth to the tennis racket.

Because when you’re already good at carving up defensemen, this is the next thing in line.
Also, that reminds me. Like in years past, we want photos of your Caps-themed jack-o-lanterns for a RMNB post on Halloween. That’s on Thursday, people, so get moving.
Did you dress up as Alex Boovechkin, Mike Ghoul, or John Cadaver over the weekend? Or maybe you put on a black bedsheet and went to a party as George “The Undertaker” McPhee? Shoot us those photos too on Twitter or via email. We can’t wait to see what you crazy kids come up with.

Today is Halloween, which for me means less than one month until my birthday! Yay! Oh wait — I mean, dressing up, eating candy, and looking like a tool. To celebrate the holiday right, we figured we’d do a Halloween-themed post.
I’ll be honest: when I heard Chris Gordon‘s demand to solicit Caps-themed jack-o-lanterns, I thought we’d get maybe four images and this post would be a total disaster. Three days and 50 emails later, holy lord did you guys come through in a BIG way. (I guess that’s why he contributes to the New York Times, and I don’t.)
We’ve got Caps logos, we’ve got Ovi heads, and we’ve got 10 million Weagle-carved pumpkins. Follow me past the jump to check out the gallery.
Oh yeah. Homeowners, please remember: the more Mr. Big bars you give out to the kids tonight, the more goals Ovechkin will score on Tuesday. So don’t be stingy. And kids, show no restraint in eating your candy when you get home. Sugar is good for you, no matter what your parents say. Eat it all in one night. Dive into those Kit-Kats and Milky Ways like Alex Ovechkin dives into the boards after scoaring. Type II diabetes be damned.
People don’t understand the true meaning of Halloween. It’s not about collecting candy or doing keg stands at Peter’s house; it’s about scaring the living bejesus out of children. Knowing this, RMNB reader Mandy expertly extched Ovi’s cretinous countrenance into a pumpkin, and we couldn’t be prouder. There’s nothing scarier than an angry, 235 lbs. Russian with fiery eyes and the will to break you.
