I would have killed to have been part of the Imperial March in downtown Indianapolis. Since I can’t be there, I’ll just make fun of it instead. Apparently, Darth Vader and his minions were marching to the Statehouse to voice their approval for a new stadium for the Colts. Yeah, right. Whatever. You know the real reason is because they are just looking for an excuse to live out their childhood fantasies while they wait for the beginning of Celebration III.
I was amused today when NBC’s Today show had a little spot about Celebration, and the guy was absolutely clueless about the films. He was going down the line of characters, trying to show that he knew a thing or two, when he came to the little green guy and said, “And, uh, the Jedi guy.” Yeah, he knows exactly what he’s talking about! Yoda is one of the most recognizable characters from the saga. That’s OK. Maybe he was just nervous or something. He was on national TV, after all. I’m sure no one has ever seen him on MSNBC.
