The Delaware 87ers have gone out of this world for their latest promotion on Star Wars Night for this Friday's game against the Erie BayHawks at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark.
Not only will the first 1,500 fans get a Darth Vader poster but the team will wear these dope uniforms with an R2D2 motif.
From the release:
Sevens players will wear special R2-D2 jerseys that will be auctioned off to fans to benefit Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Twenty percent of tickets purchased using promo code NEMOURS here will also be donated to Nemours.
Fans can count on an out-of-this-world night! Upon entry, the first 1,500 people will receive a commemorative Darth Vader poster. Star Wars characters from local performance groups Garrison Carida (501st Legion) and Ghost Base (Rebel Legion) will fill the arena, and Jedi Master Yoda will serve as the public address announcer. All fans are encouraged to dress up as Star Wars characters and participate in a costume parade for the chance to win prizes.
Yoda serving as the PA announcer? In the words of the great Tom McGinnis, "Kidding me! Are you?!"
First reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the NFL owners have voted today to shorten overtime from 15 minutes to 10 minutes as a move to reduce playing time to aid in player safety.
People on Twitter wanted to make sure Donovan McNabb knows about the change.
Although nearly nine years have passed since the Eagles and Bengals played to a 13-13 tie, it seems the former Eagles' QB still hasn't lived down the fact that he didn't know that could happen in the NFL.
"I've never been a part of a tie," McNabb said after the game ended. "I never even knew that was in the rule book."
McNabb wasn't alone, as several other of his teammates, including DeSean Jackson and Correll Buckhalter also did not know the game could end in a tie.
Now, more games will likely end in a tie and fans probably won't ever let McNabb forget it.
If you watched Monday night's Phillies loss at the hands of the Colorado Rockies, you probably weren't very entertained -- unless you're a Rockies fan.
But if you followed the game on Twitter and happen to follow the Rockies' account, you may have been slightly more entertained.
They tried something we haven't seen from an opposing team just yet. They tweeted throughout the game using only quotes from the Rocky movie franchise.
Now, you can debate how successful of a move this was but you have to at least give them some points for creativity. And it's not like this was a playoff game with high stakes. This was a relatively boring Monday night game in the middle of May.
