I'll See Your Matt Ryan For Heisman Jack-O-Lantern And Raise You An Ahman Green Jack-O-Lantern

10/31/08 in General Sports   |   100%InjuryRate   |   1283 respect

You'd be surprised, but during Halloween people make jack-o-lanterns that feature pretty much anything you can possibly think of. That includes everything from a clone of the Death Star to a Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinski profile shot.

And, naturally, if people will do jack-o-lanterns that feature stuff like that on them, they'll certainly do sports related ones as well too. So here's a look at some of the most impressive - and incredibly weird - sports themed jack-o-lanterns that have been done over the years.

First up is an Ahman Green Jack-o-lantern, which admittedly is somewhat rare.

And as an added bonues, he autographed it too.


If you're worried that Ahman's the only pro (or former pro) out there signing jack-o'-lanterns, fear not. Stan Musial is doing it as well, because we all know signing jack-o'-lanterns is how most athletes make money on the side.

I'm starting to wonder if both these guys are a little hard-up for cash. Anyway, both of those pumpkins were sold on eBay last year. Moving on, here's a jack-o'-lantern featuring Mike Holmgren.

Manny Ramirez admiring one of his home runs.



For no real particular reason, Washington Nationals manager Manny Acta



And you might as well have an Ozzie Guillen one as well.



Here's the MLB logo looking good in some guy's kitchen.


And we certainly can't forget the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies either.


Or Placido Polanco.


And just in case that Polanco one wasn't weird enough for you, here's Yadier Molina.



And don't think colleges aren't getting involved. They definitely are. Here's an LSU pumpkin.



And a Penn State one.



And, amazingly, a Matt Ryan for Heisman one.



And at this point, I might as well just rip off one-after-one the remaining pumpkins.


A pumpkin inspired by the Detroit Lions Tigers mascot and the famous "Bless You Boys" catchphrase (which the Lions could use more than the Tigers right now).


Pumpkins celebrating the 2004 Red Sox.


Here's a slightly more detailed version of Papi.


And one of Mike Lowell.


And of course we can't forget soccer.


And lastly, for no real reason, here's Kool-Aid man.Why? Because Kool-Aid Man is awesome, that's why.

It will be months before Halloween comes but my supervisor is already asking me for ideas on our store display. This is like a big thing for her compared to how big an essay paper is for me. But I got to do this if I want to keep my job. And so, this will be a great idea for me. Don't you think?

I'm going to grade these...

Ahman Green and Stan Musial-these two are amazingly accurate, but the carvers lose points in my book for not fully penetrating the outer skin of the pumpkin.  They basically just etched and did not carve.  Would go with B -, but the in-person pics where Stan and Ahman met their pumpkin alter-ego's bump the grades up to B's.

Mike Holmgren-his face just fits well on a pumpkin.  Great detail on the glasses and headset and hair.  B+

Manny Ramirez- classic Manny pose, GIANT pumpkin. Bonus points for carving through to show white light from the inside, and for the dreds trailing backwards.    They should put this one in a museum, as far as I'm concerned.  A+

Manny Acta-  Manny Acta defintiely did this as a self-portrait-  otherwise, why?  B-

Ozzie Guillen- loses points for not depicting an angry Ozzie Guillen or a dialogue bubble with curse words coming out.  Why would Ozzie Guillen, of all people, be smiling and happy on halloweeen.  B-

The MLB logo one looks like the player has a beak and a ginourmous right arm.  Why couldn't they have picked their team?  That's like making a Bud Selig pumpkin. C-

Phillies-  shaky work with the carving tools..tighten up those lines. Plus it's the Phillies and we know Philadelphians don't like it when their neighbors ring their doorbells for candy.  C+

Placido Polanco - where's a hat or helmet or something....why do a bald Placido?   B-

Yadier Molina- Impressive work with the lighting effects--need some recognizable team logo or name to make this work, though...it's Yadier Molina.  B-

LSU and Penn State-  Great school spirit- I'm definitely scared of both the Tiger and the Nittany Lion raging inside these pumpkins.  Bonus points for the Tiger for the intricate detail.
A for LSU, B for Penn St.

Ryan for Heisman---good use of the BC Eagle and I like the spirit again, but this one is just letters and can't compete in this field.   I think a BC fan made this after heading to Boston bars all night.   C+

2004 Red Sox...The guy who carved these actually carved the entire 2004 Red sox roster, and talks to them in a dark room by himself.  Decent Sox logo, though, and pretty cool Big Papi.  B+

Big Papi should be on a big pumpkin.  Nice, though.  I have a feeling an amateur carved this, and not a professional pumpkin carver like some of the others. A-

Mike Lowell- artistic flair in making the  '2007 MVP'  lettering the same as Red Sox uni's.  Very good touches on the face.  And I like how the uni form lights up with white light... A-

Soccer Ball-this could easily double as a disco pumpkin if you could rotate it...but let's be honest...you'd be embarrassed to show this off.  C-

Kool-Aid man-I give a lot of credit to the craftsmanship of the brick wall.  Also, bonus points for the look on Kool-Aid man's face---he looks distressed like he's running from the fire within the pumpkin-great effect, and I think this would scare little kids. Great find, injuryrate.  A+

Aren't we glad the Sox didn't win the series this year.

Jesus spanky. That take you all morning to do?
