It’s been two days since the Dodgers lost Game 7 of the World Series. As a lifelong fan, it was a tough game to watch, especially after such a thrilling, back-and-forth series.
Still, as the saying goes, there’s always next year. Plus, there was a new teaser for The Last Jedi! Even amongst the misery of my favorite baseball team stranding runner after runner there was the silver lining of a few new scenes of Episode VIII.
This was all kinds of cool: The Empire Strikes Back remixed into a 007-esque trailer. Not sure if Luke prefers his blue milk shaken or stirred, but I’m sure his dad would introduce himself with three simple words.
During last year’s Star Wars Day I live-tweeted while watching the original Star Wars. I won’t be doing that this year; instead, I’m bringing my copy of Carcassonne: Star Wars to my gaming group’s weekly get-together. We’ll see whose side the Force is on as we battle to rule a galaxy far, far away.
I hope you have some fun stuff planned for your May 4th celebration. And don’t forget to check out this hilarious Star Wars Day video before, during, or after today’s festivities.
Last weekend one of my gaming buddies hosted a Star Wars party. It was a lot of fun hanging out with fellow Star Wars geeks as we watched The Force Awakens Blu-ray (and the extras), talked about various fan theories regarding the next film, and celebrated our shared love of the franchise.
Of course, no Star Wars party is complete without Luke’s beverage of choice (full disclosure: I’m not much of a milk drinker anymore, so I didn’t partake).
