New York Post Proves They’re a Bunch of Nerds with Star Wars Cover
Every once in a while, you’ll run into a geek and have a spirited conversation about video games, Battlestar Galactica, your man crush on Nathan Fillion … and then suddenly your conversation will turn to sports. You think the moment has ended and you’ll spend your next few minutes trying to find someone in the room weirder looking than both of you to mock. Until that nerd says, “As long as [fill in the blank football team] wins this weekend, it’ll be a good one.” And then the bonding begins.
Finding out that the sports writers at the New York Post are really Star Wars geeks at heart? That’s pretty sweet. And now, they’ve given us an epic pull-out cover featuring the ultimate rivalry between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots ahead of their equally epic playoff bout this weekend. Obviously, the Patriots are the EVIL SITH (as a NY Giants fan myself, I still revel in the Giants ruining their perfect season at the Super Bowl three years ago rather than think about the latter part of the current season — because I can) and the Jets are the JEDI HEROES. Kinda odd to see Bill Belichik as Mark Sanchez‘s father (since the former is the head coach of the latter’s ultimate rival … still works for me …), and Joe Namath as Yoda? There is all kinds of “right” with this, but for further commentary, I’ll defer to our brother site, Sportsgrid.
