The lockout may be tougher for some players than it is for others, but if the rest of us can afford to give out candy on Halloween I think professional athletes should be able to. Players are certainly missing out on a few bucks now that games have officially been cancelled, but I wouldn’t exactly say David Stern is the Grinch who stole Halloween. According to Tony Allen and his collection of Ramen Noodles, the lockout put a damper on trick-or-treating.
If college kids were trick-or-treating in Tony’s neighborhood, his house would probably be a top priority. We won’t call handing out Ramen Noodles to kids on Halloween cruel, simply because we don’t believe he actually did it. The lockout may have people moving back home to live with their parents or getting a job at a furniture store, but it can’t be this bad. Allen has to be joking, right? Assuming he was, he must eat a lot of Ramen Noodles.
