Costumes are getting to be a habit for Smith.

He wore a Yoda outfit earlier this month before the Ravens played the Patriots.

Seems the people who made that costume got a lot of positive feedback after Smith wore it. Since being shy is not one of Smith’s problems, the chance to wear another costume was right up his alley.

He spoke to the media after Wednesday's practice dressed as Buddy the Elf from the movie Elf. 

“This is a new one, I’ve got a whole bunch of them now,” Smith said. “Free clothes, bro. Christmas is Sunday. So I think it’s going to be festive. Trying to get festive.”

Smith was asked about the irony of the Ravens and Steelers playing on Christmas, a holiday that represents peace and joy for so many.

“It’s going to be joy,” Smith said. “Not a lot of peace. Somebody’s going to come out a victor, somebody’s going to come out a loser.

“All of our AFC North games are pretty physical. There’s a professional hate with each other. The Pittsburgh-Ravens rivalry is pretty fierce, pretty intense, hard-hitting. It’s been that way for a long time. Our fans hate them. Their fans hate us. It’s a great divorce.”


Smith might be the most quotable elf in history.
