Guys, I am SO excited for tonight’s Monday Night Football game!
Wait. You’re probably confused, right? I mean, other than following my favorite Auburn football players in the NFL, why would I care about the Giants/Eagles game tonight? Well, I’ve got two words for you: Star. Wars.
Yes. Star Wars and football. Two things that may not seem likely together, but are actually pretty genius. Here’s the press release to tell you more:
Lucasfilm announced today that the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will debut on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” on Monday, October 19, during halftime of the National Football League (NFL) game between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia.
