Who saw the Star Wars intro to the Yankees Red Sox series? That was awesome

Sadly, I thought it was terrible. Too cliche'd for me, poorly edited. But, any SW reference gets some points for effort.

p.s. I'm in a sour mood right now, so take this with a grain (or bucket) of salt.

Johnny Damons head on CHewies body

Now I am wishing I had seen this. Just thinking about that makes me laugh.

I have it on DVR, just wish I could get screen shots of it.

Sorry, but I hated it. I though it was ridiculously cheesy, and completely uneccessary. While I love Star Wars getting props, I could do with out this nonsense. What happened to normal intros to the series, and shots of key players in action? Oh yeah. . . Fox has been doing the Postseason lately. They go out of their way to make their telecasts trendy, and "cool," and it makes me sick. Joe Buck constantly making coments on how "hip" the music is that is playing during a specific graphic. . . Who cares!?!?!? If they put up a graphic about Boston's Power numbers, talk about that. . . not the fact that Earth, Wind and Fire is "Jamming in the background." Every year it seems they get further and further from the actual game being played. I feel bad that Al Leiter has to be in the booth with those two clowns McCarver and Buck. Sorry, I've ranted here, but as a baseball fan (and I guess a purist) this has been bothering me for sometime.

BTW. . . the idea of Damon as Chewie WAS funny, but this wasn't the time for me.

Now, the Pirates vs. Yankees in 1960 was a true Rebels vs. Imperials series! (No, I wasn't alive then, that was from a long time ago, in a ballpark far, far gone. Long before I was born.)
