The Force is strong with these puns!
Like most fans, Wes Blankenship is wide awake with Star Wars fever after the release of The Force Awakens!
The 13WMAZ sports anchor was so pumped up by the force, he managed to squeeze in 25 Star Wars references in his recap of Sunday’s Falcons–Jaguars game!
Sure, Blankenship used some obvious references in the two minute segment when he saw fit, like uttering “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.”
But his wordplay got clever using “Wookie” instead of “rookie” and stretching words to give shout outs to C-3PO and BB-8!
And he came up with some really good gems, like:
“Matt Ryan tries to Force a pass in there, it is tipped and picked by Paul Posluszny. He has one hand in a cast, so he intercepts it with just a Han Solo.”
We love his enthusiasm!
Take a look at his commentary (below) and see if you can spot ALL the references!
