Star Wars Jerseys

From the first time I witnessed Imperial walkers bearing down on the Rebel base on the frigid planet of Hoth, and El Malo (below) lop off his own kid’s hand, the Star Wars universe has captivated me.

It can be safely assumed that I was perhaps one of a select group of people on planet Earth who prior to the release of Episodes I-III wondered how George Lucas was going to work Solomahal into the Clone Wars storyline.

For you casual fans, Solomahal was one amongst the bevy of aliens in the Cantina scene of Episode IV.

All that being said, there is such a thing as going too far in one’s devotion to the Star Wars franchise. Yes folks, even this fan of that ancient and distant galaxy thinks that one can go above and beyond what is deemed sane.

For example, dropping $207,000 on the lightsaber used by Luke Skywalker in Episodes 4 and 5 would be going too far.

Another example, would be rocking a “Star Wars Jersey” (below)

    Er…I don’t know Laz.

    Isn’t this post akin to the 500 lb. man watching the 1000 lb. man eat the family sized KFC bucket and remarking: “Now THAT GUY has a problem!”

    I don’t know. I’m just saying…

    Yeah, that was kind of the gist of it, 😉
