      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.

      I don’t know. I have my suspicions about Mariano Rivera.
