Happy Halloween Hot Clickers! We hope everyone enjoyed the holiday and behaved with legal and (adequately) mature celebrations. President Obama couldn't contain himself when greeted by this adorable toddler's Pope costume and, unsurprisingly, Gronk is the best trick-or-treater ever. Also, the Northwestern football team hilariously practiced in their costumes, here are 30 NFL cheerleaders in Halloween costumes; this All-American dad dresses his 18-month-old daughter in a new costume every single day; and above is a gallery of childhood photos of athletes in costumes.

This Certainly Got Interesting

After the Royals hammered in the Mets in Game 2 on Wednesday night, some wondered if the KC faithful could begin planning their title celebrations. However, Noah Syndergaard and the Mets returned the favor with a blowout victory of their own in Game 3, one that started with Syndergaard sending a message with a high and tight pitch to Alcides Escobar. We already knew that Mike Moustakas was a feisty player with a potty mouth but got a kind reminder on Friday night when he voiced displeasure with the pitch. Maybe he and others forgot that KC's pitchers were the instigators in a few incidents earlier this season.

All-Villain Team
