Or are you better than that? 

With our help, you can be better than that. Since we want you to be the best sports fan possible, here's your choice of 9 relatively easy sports-inspired Halloween costumes that can be made with everyday items. The pick is in.

Tarnished But Still All-Powerful Roger Goodell 
How to pull it off: Sloppily put on a jacket and tie, tape letters reading "WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL MAN" to your shirt, hold a giant "NFL RULE BOOK" and affix an egg to your face. (This one's a bit more difficult, but so is Goodell, amirite?
