    If you haven’t left your bed for the whole week, consider yourself lucky, because you’ve avoided the ad-nauseum of the Star Wars Trilogy Box Set. I know alot of people have been waiting a long time for this, but does that really mean that it needs to be promoted in every TV store circular. I didn’t know George Lucas (damn you George Lucas!) films were such a huge seller of TV’s at Best Buy.

    The worst of all is FOX Baseball. The people running FOX Baseball have some sick obsession with Star Wars and goats. Ever since that Red Sox executive called the Yankees the “evil empire,” FOX sees the need to play the Empire’s theme (or Darth Vader’s theme, whatever it’s called) whenever they bring up a Yankees stat. Sure it was cute at first, but enough is enough. Today, before the game, they decided to run a 5 minute piece, mixing together Star Wars scenes, with Yankee – Red Sox highlights. They were trying to compare A-rod to Darth Vader…or something like that. One last thing, Tim McCarver is kind of like John Madden, except Tim McCarver is an asshole, while John Madden has a unique charm.

    In order to celebrate the Star Wars Trilogy, I present to you my brother’s prize MP3. An epic tale of good vs. evil, in a futuristic world. A song so good, George Lucas stole the idea, and turned it into a horrible movie. Damn you George Lucas!

    Weird Al Yankovic – The Saga Begins



    “The Saga Begins”

    A long, long time ago
    In a galaxy far away
    Naboo was under an attack
    And I thought me and Qui-Gon Jinn
    Could talk the federation into
    Maybe cutting them a little slack
    But their response, it didn’t thrill us
    They locked the doors and tried to kill us
    We escaped from that gas
    Then met Jar Jar and Boss Nass
    We took a bongo from the scene
    And we went to Theed to see the Queen
    We all wound up on Tatooine
    That’s where we found this boy…

    Oh my my this here Anakin guy
    May be Vader someday later – now he’s just a small fry
    And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
    Sayin’ “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi”
    “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi”

    Did you know this junkyard slave
    Isn’t even old enough to shave
    And he can use the Force, they say
    Ahh, do you see him hitting on the queen
    Though he’s just nine and she’s fourteen
    Yah, he’s probably gonna marry her someday
    Well, I knew he built C-3PO
    And I’ve heard how fast his pod can go
    And we were broke, it’s true
    So we made a wager or two
    He was a prepubescent flyin’ ace
    And the minute Jabba started off that race
    Well, I knew who would win first place
    Oh yes, it was our boy

    We started singin’ …
    My my this here Anakin guy
    May be Vader someday later – now he’s just a small fry
    And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
    Sayin’ “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi”
    “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi”

    Now we finally got to Coruscant
    The Jedi Council we knew would want
    To see how good the boy could be
    So we took him there and we told the tale
    How his midi-chlorians were off the scale
    And he might fulfill that prophecy
    Oh, the Council was impressed, of course
    Could he bring balance to the Force?
    They interview the kid
    Oh, training they forbid
    Because Yoda sensed in him much fear
    And Qui-Gon said “Now listen here”
    “Just stick it in your pointy ear”
    “I still will teach this boy”

    He was singin’ …
    My my this here Anakin guy
    May be Vader someday later – now he’s just a small fry
    And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
    Sayin’ “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi”
    “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi”

    We caught a ride back to Naboo
    ‘Cause Queen Amidala wanted to
    I frankly would’ve liked to stay
    We all fought in that epic war
    And it wasn’t long at all before
    Little Hotshot flew his plane and saved the day
    And in the end some Gunguns died
    Some ships blew up and some pilots fried
    A lot of folks were croakin’
    The battle droids were broken
    And the Jedi I admire most
    Met up with Darth Maul and now he’s toast
    Well, I’m still here and he’s a ghost
    I guess I’ll train this boy

    And I was singin’ …
    My my this here Anakin guy
    May be Vader someday later – now he’s just a small fry
    And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
    Sayin’ “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi”
    “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi”

    We were singin’ …
    My my this here Anakin guy
    May be Vader someday later – now he’s just a small fry
    And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
    Sayin’ “Soon I’m gonna be a Jedi”

    I love this song (guess why :p ). And they’re comparing the Yankees to the Empire? Even I think that’s bad.
