Wild At Heart

Looks like yesterday was an unofficial Star Wars holiday which went largely unnoticed by many but produced quite a few laughs, "May the Fourth Be With You" (get it). I started off watching the "Big Bang Theory" episode with the Bob Newhart cameo which was one of the stronger episodes this season. Then I caught the NFL Star Wars draft showing they have a great sense of humor. Chewbacca was drafted #1 to the Houston Texans. I think with all that fur he might prefer a colder weather area like Buffalo or Green Bay but a definite fan pleaser. Still trying to figure out how Detroit Lions got Darth Vader at the 10th pick (isn't Suh trouble enough?). I am pissed they gave the Cowboys Jar Jar Binks. I know we have our issues but that is just cruel (I think he would fit the Jets soo much better. here is the rest of the draft. Enjoy:

For the more musically minded, there is agreat Catina Band Audition video with cameos by Lisa Loeb, Ben Folds, Rick Springfield, Weird Al Yankovic, Liz Phair and more which has some great make-up, a funny script and some cool musicians that really did a great job in this send up. Check out the action here and tell me I'm wrong.
