Odell Beckham Jr. was turning heads this morning when he showed up to The Meadowlands ahead of the Giants’ game against division rival Washington Redskins. He’s always a sharp dresser and flashy dude, a bro that draws attention wherever he goes, but this was different.
When Odell Beckham Jr. showed up to the stadium he figured today was as good a day as any to bust out his creepy ass Halloween mask. He wasn’t exactly alone in dressing up for today’s game in a Halloween theme. Tyreek Hill showed up to his game in a sumo wrestler suit and a Chicago Bears player showed up dressed as Mike Ditka. But OBJ’s mask is creepy AF.
I can’t really tell what the mask is because it’s out of focus and he’s walking quickly but it appears to be like a wooden version of the mask from Jim Carrey’s The Mask from back in the 90s, or something similar. Regardless of what this mask is, it was ominous for OBJ’s performance on the field.
After turning heads for showing up in that weird ass mask OBJ took the practice field with a pair of Nike cleats with over 100 swoosh marks on them which could be a not-too-subtle nod to the ridiculously enormous $95 million contract he signed in the offseason.
About that catch. Odell Beckham pulled in a 44-yard pass while getting pulled down and somehow managed to keep control of the ball. After Odell made this catch, naturally, Twitter went nuts.
Reactions to OBJ’s insane catch started flowing in immediately….
Honestly, why ISN’T Eli going deep to OBJ on 33% of plays if he wants to keep his job for the entire season?
This isn’t wrong:
All for nothing.
There were a whole lot of Eli Manning white knights out there after this catch too, despite the throw being in a spot that caused the receiver to be falling to the ground while getting fouled.
Let’s not get carried away here. Eli’s been complete trash this entire season. OBJ had to make a superhuman play to hold onto the ball and the Giants didn’t even get any points out of it because Eli couldn’t get the job done.
