It’s the pumpkin time of year, and many of you will be looking to D.C. sports for inspiration for your gourd design. Last year was chock full of Curly W’s and toothless Ovi Jack ‘O Lanterns. Share a pic of your DMV-inspired carving on our Sports Bog Facebook page, and we’ll feature our favorites here next week.
We’re also looking for pics of your D.C. sports Halloween costumes. You can do a lot with “Beast Mode.”
