Christian, Samantha Ponder Channel ‘The Sandlot,’ Dress as Squints, Wendy Peffercorn for Halloween (Photo)

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen chose The Wizard of Oz as the theme for their Halloween costumes. Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and his wife, ESPN reporter Samantha Ponder, also went with a childhood classic, albeit a slightly more contemporary one.

The Ponders did their best Sandlot impression this year, with the QB dressing up as Squints and Samantha going as lifeguard Wendy Peffercorn. It was a pretty clever idea as far as couples costumes go, even if Samantha’s Wendy was a bit more convincing than the 6-foot-2 Christian’s Squints.

Check out the costumes in the photo below, with a hat tip to The Big Lead.
