There are many notable couples from the world of sports. But you can make a case that Christian and Samantha Ponder are the best one. These two just seem to go together for whatever reason. They’ve been married for over a year now, after meeting on the set of ESPN’s College Gameday last fall. They got married shortly thereafter and reportedly went to Arby’s for dinner on their wedding night.

So as many couple do this time of year, the Ponders decided to rock themed costumes for Halloween. Their choice? The Sandlot. That’s right, the classic baseball movie that nearly every sports fan loves.

Here’s a look at the couple, one would assume before they went out for the evening:

That’s the QB dressed up as Squints and the reporter as lifeguard Wendy Peffercorn.

If you’ve never seen the classic scene from the Sandlot, shame on you, but here you go:

As for Christian Ponder’s NFL future, it doesn’t seem so bright at the moment. He was benched earlier in the year by the Minnesota Vikings and then he didn’t play well this past weekend on SNF. The Vikings are in a huge hole at 1-6 and it seems very unlikely he’ll be brought back in 2014. He’s still under contract for one more season, so it’s possible they could hold onto him for depth, but they could also try to trade him for a late-round pick if a team wanted to take a chance on him.
