Star Wars And Sports Combine To Create The Greatest Christmas Present In The Universe

12/15/08 in General Sports   |   Pat   |   5233 respect

Christmas is coming, and it's time to think about everyone. From the sports fan in the family to the hard core Star Wars fanatic. Or both. If you know someone who is both a fan of sports AND Star Wars, and who isn't, I believe we've found the best gift ever. Seriously. It's the Star Wars themed sports jerseys, because what hardcore Star Wars fan isn't secretly a serious gym rat? Or at least it gives you something dope to practice your light saber skills in.

For the bounty hunters among us, there's the Boba Fett "Assassins" jersey, as modeled above by Boba himself. There's also a Fett baseball jersey, and a vintage style football jersey as well:

Got someone who's into the dark side? Maybe one of those relatives who run around smacking the dog with with a light saber while talking like James Earl Jones? Try the Darth Vader jerseys. Word is you can reject shots using only your mind.

There are plenty of varieties of the Vader edition, from baseball to football, basketball to hockey.

The tag on the football jersey above reads:
"Darth Vader, Lord of the Sith,
Is the scourge of the Jedi, a master of the Dark Side of the
Force, and one of the Emperor's most trusted servants.

Sith Lord

Tie Fighter

Hell. Yes. He also kicks butt at football.

Here's the baseball one.


The hockey one is seriously badass. I can't tell you how awesome it'd be to suit up for the Ice Planet Hoth Vaders.


There's even a Darth Vader wristband, to catch all of that extra sweat when you're hoopin' it up in your fly Vader threads:

I'll take 30 of those wristbands, please.

For those who prefer to fight evil, there's the classic Yoda jerseys. Available in basketball, football and baseball, Yoda's jerseys are not only stylish, but they'll help you pick up the chicks who aren't into the evil and gloomy "dark side". Plus we all know good Jedi masters score the hottest chicks. Dagobah rules!

So if you're searching high and low for Christmas presents, stop searching. Because these are the best damn gifts the universe has ever produced. Excellent they are, yes.

Only one problem though, how on earth did they forget to make a Skywalker basketball jersey? Kenny "Sky" Walker does not approve, George Lucas.

I think  they are missing a real opportunity with the Trekkies. For example, with the Enterprise as the logo, one could have a jersey with Players on the front and "Kirk" on the back. Also, one could run out there with Alcoholics on the front and "Scotty" on the back.
