May The Curveball Be With You. Always.

June 3, 2012


Sometimes, when people are feeling grim, or have just uncovered some historical horror like The Brazen Bull, they’ll make a comment like “There is no horror we can think up that we haven’t inflicted on one another.”  And then you look at each other and nod, cynically.

The other thing to remember though, is that there aren’t very many really fantastic things you can think up that someone hasn’t tried either.  Consider the subject of this week’s Weekly Question of the Week! (which is only sort of a question…) Star Wars = great.  Baseball = great.  Star Wars characters playing baseball?  Are you kidding me??

So, it’s another caption contest, this week.  Take a moment, drink it in, and what have you got?  What caption would you give the photo below?  Give it a go – no need for fear (for, as Yoda once said, fear leads to anger.  Anger leads to hate. And hate leads to fear. Which leads to hate.  I mean anger.  Which leads to… wait.  I think I got lost there… lessee, fear leads to…)

Anyway, batter up!

    “They were finally able to finish the game after convincing Luke to stop using his light saber”


  3. She's a Maineiac Says:

    C-3PO’s elation was short-lived when his home run was once again deflected into foul territory by Princess Leia’s bunhead.


  4. Life With The Top Down Says:

    Although this is a great photo and I look forward to reading what your creative followers come up with, I can not partake in the contest. Why? Sit down…I have NEVER seen a Star Wars movie. Yes, I’ve seen the Sweet Brown video a million times and never this classic….go ahead, permission to judge. Hahaha.


  5. She's a Maineiac Says:

    A hush fell over the crowd in anticipation as C-3PO raised his arms ominously, indicating he intended to hit the ball to Tatooine.


  6. She's a Maineiac Says:

    And it was at the bottom of the ninth when Darth Vader walked off after enduring C-3PO’s relentless taunts of “Who’s your Daddy?” to shortstop Luke Skywalker.


  7. Renée A. Schuls-Jacobson Says:

    “Pitch or not pitch,” C3P0 taunted Vader from the plate causing the Asian businessmen in the crowd to go wild.


  8. Go Jules Go Says:

    Darth Vader storms off after he realizes coaching little league is a permanent part of daddy duty.


  9. susielindau Says:

    As C3PO hits one off the cosmic deck the catcher says, “They seem to be one star ship short of a fleet. Yep, they’re definitely not firing on all thrusters.”


  10. skippingstones Says:

    Every man has his limits, and Vader had heard “Take me out to the ballgame” for the last time.


  11. sj Says:

    Darth Vader: “THAT WAS STRIKE THREE! F*ck it, I’m out.”


  12. Soma Mukherjee Says:

    Oh no i wish i had seen at least one star war movie. 😯
    well there is always next time 😦


  13. List of X Says:

    If you build the Death Star, they will come.


  14. List of X Says:

    Darth Vader has been disqualified for attempting to mentally Force-choke an umpire.


  15. thesinglecell Says:

    “Curse my metal body! I wasn’t fast enough. My poor master. Er… coach.”


  16. thesinglecell Says:

    Vader stormed off in anger when he realized that his Imperial Storm Trooper and C3PO had been united in their love of Jock Jams and were now busting a move at home plate.


  17. Elyse Says:

    Telling her she would see some old friends there was the only way Han could get Leah to see another damn baseball game. That and the promise of some cold beer.


  18. Curly Carly Says:

    In hopes of expanding its viewership, Major League Baseball attempts a last ditch effort to win over the nerd demographic.


  19. Richard Wiseman Says:

    Screw baseball I’m going to get a hot dog and a coke.


  20. Audrey Says:

    During game 3 of the Galactic Series last week, the Empire really did strike back with Darth Vader on the mound. Here we see TK-421 rocking his iconic victory dance.


  21. pegoleg Says:

    Vader was still ticked off that their “Mos Eisley Cantina” jerseys hadn’t come in before the first game of the Intergalactic Bar Slow Pitch League’s season.
