Missouri State men’s basketball coach Dana Ford tweeted that on Oct. 1, his wife told him that the family theme for Halloween was going to be “Trolls.”
Ford said he told his wife “no way I’m dressing up as a troll. I’m drawing a line on your shenanigans.”
“Trolls” is a computer-animated film — that has a sequel — that is based on Troll dolls. You know, the Troll dolls with the spiky hair.
Fast forward to Halloween and Ford apparently caved in.
The men’s basketball coach tweeted a photo of himself dressed up in a blue shirt and leggings along with his face being painted blue.
“#Happywifehappylife,” Ford tweeted.
This Ford theme of Trolls follows their 2019 theme which featured the whole family dressing up as Power Rangers.
Ford will, hopefully, be back on the sidelines at JQH Arena for regular-season games in November amid the pandemic. While neither MSU hoops program has yet release a non-conference schedule, the NCAA said in September that regular-season play can begin on Nov. 25.
