It's Halloween and the Ravens are on their bye week. For quarterback Joe Flacco that means a mid-season respite from the rigors of tackle football, as well as an opportunity to just be himself, all for charity.

Specifically, Flacco showed up at the Ravens Goodwill Gridiron Halloween Party Monday looking a lot like, I imagine, his high school yearbook photo. This time, however, it was for a good cause.

"I saw a recent haircut of 'The Situation,' and he had some designs in it, so I thought, 'Hey that would be fun to do," the still-styled Flacco said at a news conference on Tuesday. "I'm going to cut all of this off [on the top], I'm going to cut this off just like I get my normal haircut when I go home this week, but all the designs will still be in there."

Flacco's new persona was for the Ravens Goodwill Gridiron Halloween Party on Monday night. Hosted by board member and Ravens Senior Vice President of Public and Community Relations Kevin Byrne, Todd Heap and Michael Oher, several players attend the event with fans at Dave & Buster's in Arundel Mills Mall.
Flacco's wig came courtesy of linebacker Tavares Gooden's favorite barber. No idea what it cost to look like that, but it took an hour and 40 minutes to have "lines etched into the side of his head and an outline of the State of New Jersey on the back."
