At the Toys R Us Midnight Madness, a news crew showed up and took some footage of the idiots standing out in the cold and in the rain waiting for the doors to open.
So the next morning a buddy of mine calls me and says, "If your wife wants to know where you were last night, tell her I know exactly where you were."
It turns out he saw me on on the 6 am news standing in line with the 50 or so other people at Toys R Us Friday night.
The sad part about all this is that this isn't the first time I've been on the news while standing in line waiting for Star Wars Stuff. Back in 1997, when the extended editions of the original trilogy was out, I was on TV buying tickets for that, then I was on TV at the Episode I midnight madness at Toys R Us, and a third time in line buying tickets to the midnight showing of Episode I. So this last sighting at Toys R Us makes the 4th time I've been on TV waiting for something Star Wars.
Is this a sad commentary on the state of my life?
