Trick-or-treating and Halloween for most folks brings back memories of your favorite costumes and candies as a youngster walking the streets with friends hoping to get that king-sized candy bar. So after the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the New England Patriots 25-17 at Heinz Field on Sunday one day before Halloween, I thought it would be a good time to get the Halloween lowdown on some of Halloween memories from those who now proudly wear the Black-n-Gold costume on Sundays, from the Pittsburgh Steelers themselves.
The routine questions we ask in the media grow old for both us the writers and especially to the players themselves who have to answer those same questions week after week. That’s why I take the moment and get behind the scenes and know a little more than the score and find for example—What did LaMarr Woodley like as his favorite candy on Halloween?
We know that after recording two sacks yesterday on Patriots QB Tom Brady that is was Woodley’s third consecutive game he has recorded at least two sacks. What about those tasty treats we get in the trick-or-treat bag, what was his favorite?
Read on and you will find out. Below are quotes from the Pittsburgh Steelers talking about their favorite candy and costume they wore when growing up and going out on Halloween to trick-or-treat.
