Raheem Shares Halloween Memories

October 31st, 2011

Raheem's favorite childhood Halloween costume on his boyhood streets of New Jersey. It's Admiral Ackbar of Star Wars, not Cardinals great Willie Magee.

During a light moment on The Raheem Morris Show on WDAE-AM 620 tonight, the Bucs head coach shared a few fond childhood memories.

There was the school Halloween party in third grade, in which Raheem said he was forced to sit in a coat closet with other students that misbehaved that day. Raheem recalled some girls bringing him chocolate there.

And there was Raheem’s favorite costume and the memories of his mother hooking him up.

“I didn’t live in a great neighborhood, so my parents weren’t fired up about taking me trick-or-treating,” Raheem said.

“The one costume I’ll always remember is Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars. I wore that all the time. … I’m not even sure if I wanted to be him. I think my mother got it because it was at Woolworth’s and it was probably on sale at the time. That’s probably what happened. She did a great job. My mom made me He-Man, I believe, one year.”

Joe wonders who Chucky dressed up as when he was a young lad. Kenny Stabler? Batman? Joe figures Chucky always wanted to wear a cape and a utility belt.

    lol I remember my mother making me a Scorpion from Mortal Combat outfit by hand in ’92. Went to Joann’s Fabrics and sowed it all by herself. I was one happy kid.
