How did it take this long for an enterprising sports reporter to come up with a Star Wars themed sportscast? Wes Blankenship of WMAZ in Macon, Georgia paid tribute to the most popular movie in the history of the universe by dropping 23 Star Wars references during this highlight package, one for each point the Falcons scored in their victory over the Jaguars on Sunday. I think my favorite might be the “hand solo” pun for Paul Posluszny.
Bravo, Wes. If sportscasters had a jedi class, you’d be well on your way.
