Halloween: Broncos Boohoohoo
Halloween is supposed to be a fright fest. We are to witness a million different haunting sights and sounds. Then there's always the kid with the one costume. It's so hilarious you can't keep yourself from exploding into laughter. Well this is my nomination for this year.
Got any good costumes you've seen through the years? We're all ears. Leave your comments below. My most memorable costume was worn by John Kascht, a former colleague here at the News who made a brief stop in the early 80's on his road to superstardom. Kascht is an incredibly talented caricaturist whose work has appeared in Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Entertainment weekly, and just about every kind of magazine you've ever read. Anyway, Kascht came to a News Halloween Bash as a Christmas tree. We got him a beer, and plugged him into the corner where he held court for the rest of the night. He wrapped himself in chicken wire and then carefully added artificial branches row by row. He finished it off with strings of lights and tinsel. Every once in awhile he'd call somebody over and throw a present for that person under the tree. It was hilarious. He walked home from the party and car after car stopped to witness the walking tree. Any Police stops that night were in for quite a story. "I swear officer, the tree, it was walking". "Right. Book him. If that's not DUI, I don't know what is." The downside of the story. Kascht itched for weeks.
