Rather than dwelling on what every one else is – the depressing loss in Detroit or the end of “The Streak” – I decided this week it was time for some fun. @24markymark21 and I (with occasional input from others) developed a list of Packers (or football) related Star Wars characters via Twitter in a burst of inspiration. Some on the list had a few different names associated at various times but it’s my blog post, therefore I picked the ones I liked the best. So there.

I don’t know if anyone else will think it’s funny, but Mark and I had a few giggles. Feel free to suggest your own substitutions or additions. May the force be with the Packers!

Obi-Wan Kenobi – young: LeRoy Butler
Old Ben Kenobi: Ted Thompson
Lando Kalrissian: Greg Jennings
Yoda: Phil Hanrahan
Admiral Ackbar: Jason Wilde
Jabba the Hutt: Gilbert Brown
Boba Fett: Ryan Longwell

R2D2: Dom Capers
C3PO: Shawn Slocum
Qai Gon Jinn: Mike McCarthy
Jar Jar Binks: Jeremy Kapinos
Mace Windu: Donald Driver
Princess Leia: Jen Lada (note, Ms. Lada interjected she doesn’t look good in buns. Who does?)
Luke Skywalker: Aaron Rodgers (of course!)
Queen Amidala: Deanna Favre (I don’t like this one but I couldn’t do better)
Darth Vader: Brett Favre (yes, hoping for his redemption back to Anakin someday)
The Force: Aaron Nagler and Corey Behnke

    Phil as Yoda just has be cracking up for some reason, sitting here giggling like a little school girl, not sure why.

  • Anita

    Okay, my Star Wars knowledge is suspect (I’ve never seen the last two movies), but you’re saying that Aaron Rodgers is Brett and Deanna’s son, right? Huh. Go figure.

  • Mark

    I think Al Davis might be a better Emperor than Jerry. Heck Al looks like him

  • Mark

    Also Bush might be a better Jar Jar

  • Anita

    Jarrett, not George, right?

  • Mark

    yes Jarrett Anita

  • Colleen

    Wally – Phil is just so calm and wise, he made sense (and he thought it was great). I giggled too.

    Anita – well, in an odd way it makes sense. From great stupidity or evil a good thing comes – even if it takes him a while to quit getting knocked around.

    Also – GW might be a good Jar Jar, but not in this setting. ;)

    Mark – your ideas are always good. :)

  • Mark

    maybe we should change amidala to Jayme or Holly?

  • Anita

    Does Wilde forfeit his place on the list for openly admitting that he’s never seen Star Wars?

  • Colleen

    No, but him asking Wally instead of me last night what I meant by that almost did. For heaven’s sake.
