Those eyes, those cheeks, that walrus-like lip rug. This baby from Olathe has the title of Halloween’s best costume all sewn up.

A picture of a baby dressed up as Chiefs coach Andy Reid started popping up all over sports blogs Sunday and no one knew who he was until Wil Brinson, NFL writer for CBSSports.com, found out.

Surprise! The baby’s name is Graham and he’s the son of Chiefs fans B.J. and Jodi Leeper from Olathe.

“It was my husband's idea to dress him up as Andy Reid for our neighborhood Halloween party,” Jodi wrote to Brinson.

“I just wish we could get a photo with him and Coach Reid together. That would be hilarious!"

Wichita's Bode Lubbers was a similar Internet hit in 2008 when he was dressed as then-KU football coach Mark Mangino.
