When Worlds Collide

Normally, I love it when my geeky worlds converge, but this time I find the result a little disconcerting. From the Yahoo! news wires on Wednesday night:

An actor playing Chewbacca throws out the ceremonial first pitch prior to a game between the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays Fenway Park in Boston, Wednesday Sept. 28, 2005. Chewbacca and an actress playing Princess Leia were promoting the Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination exhibit at the Museum of Science in Boston. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)

As if the image of Chewbacca throwing a pitch from the mound at Fenway Park wasn't disturbing enough, keith89 pointed out to me last night that Leia looks kinda manish.

Shame on the Boston Red Sox... you all deserve a new 90-year curse for allowing this to happen.

Keeping a Lid on It, But...

The Phillies just won 4-3, and now I find myself watching the Astros-Cubs game hoping the Cubs will preserve their 4-3 lead in the bottom of the ninth. Whatever happens, I will not let myself start to believe -- especially so soon after writing this post. If the Cubbies do hold on, I get the added bonus of having Ryan Dempster picking up a save for my fantasy team in their stretch run for 6th place.
