With Monday being Halloween, many of the personalities on ESPN’s daytime programming decided to get in on the dress-up fun, so we decided to round up some of the best costumes. Let’s start with a Highly Questionable from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away:
The Episode IV Princess Leia hairdo really works for Dan LeBatard, and seeing his father dressed as Darth Vader is pretty perfect. What about a Harbaugh-centric episode of SportsNation?
Around The Horn went with a whole bunch of costumes and frequent costume changes:
And then got pretty political with Sarah Spain dressed as Melania Trump, trying to recruit Jim Harbaugh to Trump University and saying “If you are a star, you grab the quarterback position, you do not ask for permission.” What happened to that no politics memo?:
Spain wins the Around The Horn Halloween MVP for her frequent costume changes:

They also showed a montage that included Tim Cowlishaw as Donald Trump:
And another montage of Halloweens past:
On Pardon The Interruption, Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser took aim at Lionel Richie and Peyton Manning’s DirecTV commercials:
Russillo and Kanell saw Danny Kanell dressed as Scott Van Pelt and doing “One Big Thing”:

And His and Hers, who already pulled off one great film reference with their recent Anchorman parody, this time went for “Boyz In The Hood”:

Meanwhile, over on FS1, there were no obvious costumes on anything from The Herd to Undisputed to Speak For Yourself. What happened to “The 1 For Fun,” Fox? Or did you think dressing the whole network up as a hot takes factory was good enough? In any rate, ESPN definitely won the costume contest during the day, and that continued later on Monday Night Football.
