Athletes You'd Hate to Spend a Night Trick-or-Treating With

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

It's only the beginning of October, but it is never to early to get excited for the spookiest and craziest time of the year. As a kid, Halloween means eating too much candy while dressing in silly but creative costumes.

Memories from trick-or-treating include taking all of the candy instead of one piece of candy (which is totally annoying by the way), trading your least favorite goodies with your friends and bathing for the next hour just trying to wipe the paint off of your face, arms, legs, whatever.

By the time kids reach the college years, Halloween still entails many crazy and arguably bush-league costumes and outfits with a lot of extra ... well, you know. But trick-or-treating is gone well before college; by the time the college kids become the responsible adults, Halloween practically loses all of its luster.

By the time children reach the college years and adult life, trick-or-treating remains to stick out as one of the greatest childhood memories. Most kids also have idols they look up to while growing up, whether they are celebrities, models, athletes, etc. There are likely a handful of athletes who kids or adults would die for the opportunity to spend a night of trick-or-treating with.

Athletes, dead or alive, such as Hank Aaron, Jackie Robinson, Michael Jordan, Walter Payton and Peyton Manning stick out, but we aren't here to give those athletes credit.

As a responsible adult, crazy college kid, or a child, which athletes would people absolutely hate going trick-or-treating with? I'm here to tell you that setting up an evening with any one of these 20 athletes would make up for a not-so-happy Halloween.

20. Metta World Peace

The veteran NBA forward is an extremely funny and outgoing person, but possibly a little bit too outgoing. World Peace may not be the safest person for kids to be around on Halloween.

19. Matt Schaub

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Texans quarterback would be the only person to have his candy intercepted by others for multiple nights in a row, so you can't trust him with your gummy bears and Reeses.

18. Joakim Noah

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bulls center's look and face scare people already, and families would be too frightened to offer him anything meant for the kids.

17. Bryce Harper

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

If the Washington Nationals' young stud got a protein bar instead of Whoppers, he'd probably throw a temper-tantrum on the stoop similar to a five-year old girl.

16. Dwight Howard

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets' center would probably demand a Butterfinger, become frustrated when the Butterfinger gets stuck in his teeth and then demand an Almond Joy to make him happy.

15. Jay Cutler

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Halloween is so fun and the Chicago Bears' quarterback always looks so ... depressed. You wouldn't have any fun with him, guaranteed.

14. Tony Romo

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Anyone trick-or-treating with the Dallas Cowboys' quarterback would probably have the best candy and most fun, but it'd still be his fault if someone in the group got a can of beans on Halloween.

13. Kurt Busch

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

If you gave Busch something he didn't like, the hot-tempered NASCAR driver wouldn't just yell at you, he'd purposely wreck your car as well.

12. Tony Stewart

Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

Kurt Busch would probably slam his car into Tony Stewart's car, Stewart would start an altercation with the fellow NASCAR driver and would be the root of the problems of the worst evening of trick-or-treating in the history of your neighborhood.

11. Michael Vick

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Don't dress like a dog around the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback on Halloween, because ... well, you know.

10. Johnny Manziel

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner was allegedly hung over at the Manning's Passing Academy over the summer ... could you imagine what state he'd be in just for a night of trick-or-treating?

9. Ben Roethlisberger

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

With kids dressing up as princesses or Lady Gaga, do I really need to explain why it'd be a bad idea to bring the Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback along?

8. John Terry

Paul Frederiksen-USA TODAY Sports

The professional soccer player allegedly had an extra-marital affair with a teammate's wife and has been known for using racist slurs during soccer matches. In the words of Antoine Dodson: Hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife.

7. Mark Sanchez

John O'Boyle-USA TODAY Sports

The Butt Fumble will ruin everything that the injured New York Jets quarterback is ever involved in for the rest of his life ... seriously.

6. Kris Humphries

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

If Kim Kardashian couldn't stand to be married to the Boston Celtics forward for no more than three months, it's safe to say Humphries wouldn't last with your trick-or-treating group for an entire evening.

5. Raffi Torres

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

The San Jose Sharks head-hunter was suspended 25 games in hockey. Just imagine the damage he could do on a night of trick-or-treating. Oh the humanity!

4. Marshall Henderson

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

There's always that one kid who would take all the candy when the sign clearly states "take one piece please". That kid would be the Ole Miss star; and while he would be in the process of taking all of the candy, he'd flip off the young ones while addressing them all as "losers". The guy did it in SEC basketball, why wouldn't he do it in a neighborhood as well?

3. Manti Te'o

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The San Diego Chargers linebacker would probably just sulk all throughout the night and falsely state how much his "late" girlfriend Lennay Kekua loved Halloween.

2. Ryan Braun

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Milwaukee Brewers' MVP* slugger lied about taking performance-enhancing drugs. What if Braun pulled a Marshall Henderson and took all the candy instead of just taking one piece like everyone else? He'd probably blame it on some poor soul like he had done in 2011.

1. Ndamukong Suh

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions defensive tackle is a nice guy off of the field, but if you take his candy, he'd probably cut you at your knees from behind and slam your face into someone's front lawn while taking a shot at your crotch. Warning: Extremely Dangerous Around Others.
