Newcastle United’s holiday party looked fun

Newcastle’s first team held their annual Christmas party on Sunday, and luckily Sammy Ameobi took plenty of pictures.

Fresh off a tremendous win against the defending Premier League champions Man United, the team decided to let loose and dress up like it’s Halloween, with plenty of superheros, cross-sport stars, and even a Chewbacca in attendance. Ameobi is the teenage mutant ninja turtle, but we can’t quite make out who everyone else is. Maybe you can?

Take a look:

Well, we do know who this one is. Looks like Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa had a rough night!


Kyle Walker gives Spurs teammates hilarious fright for Halloween

What’s better than grown men screaming like little school children? Not a whole lot, in our opinion.

Luckily, for all the scare-enthusiasts out there, Kyle Walker and Spurs TV put together this gem of a video. Watch as Walker pops out to scare teammates like Andros Townsend, Jermain Defoe, Sandro Raniere, Emmanuel Adebayor and others.

The Brazilians, by far, provide the most comedic reactions, but Townsend’s shriek is truly classic. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Belgian stalwart Jan Vertonghen, who looks about as scared as a turkey in December.

Perhaps this serves as a bit of a public service announcement, too. You’ll notice the vast majority of the victims pull out their cell phones as soon as they think they’re alone. And then…BAM! Panic!

Always be aware of your surrounding, kids.

Soccer stars get into the Halloween mood

Halloween is just a couple days away, and if you haven’t figured out a costume yet, well, you’re in luck.

Several soccer stars have already revealed what they’re being for the spookiest day of the year, and perhaps they can serve as inspiration for you.

Want to scare your friends silly? Just take a look at New England Revolution striker Juan Agudelo’s creepy outfit. As you can see by Charlie Davies’ reaction, this will do the trick (no pun intended):

Looking for something more pop culture related? Leave it to USA stars Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux — who else? — to show you what’s hot in the streets right now:

Hilarious choice, but that twerk still looks like it could use some work, Alex. I mean Miley.

Of course, you can always go the vintage Halloween route. Check out Robin van Persie as Count Dracula! Too bad RVP didn’t strip on a Luis Suarez jersey along with it, that would have been truly epic.


Halloween with Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux

So, Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux had a little fun the other night, taking on the town as Olympic gold medalists McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas. Along the way they ran into Buddy the Elf…

…and teammates Abby WambachShannon Boxx and Sarah Huffman.


Nice Val Kilmer look there, Abby.

Now, you may be asking: “where in the world do you keep your money in costumes like that?” Ms. Leroux has the answer:
