You don’t have to be a Star Wars nerd to think this NY Post sports cover (see a bigger version here) is fantastic. Rex Ryan as Han Solo, Joe Namath as Yoda, Nick Mangold as a Wookie an Ewok, Mark Sanchez as Luke Skywalker, and (of course) Bill Belichick as Darth Vadar.

Not much else to add here, but what an awesome, awesome cover. And this was the first shot across the bow in what has turned out to be a Boston vs. New York newspaper war.

Even the headline (Return of Jet-I), which should seem oh-so-obvious comes across as very clever. As Yoda would say, How cool this is?

Should have had Brady as Vader and Belichick as the Emporer. And obviously, Mangold should have been Chewie. How about Shotty as C3PO? I like the rest of the Pats as stormtroopers. Cromartie could have been Lando. The rest of the Jets could have been Ewoks.

BTW, Yoda wouldn't have said,"How cool is this?". He would have said,"Very cool this is" or "Like Padme, Yoda Does".

Hmmm...  It's going to be Empire Stikes Back.  Rex Ryan is going to be Frozen in Belichick's Carbonite.  How can you throw a ball Sanchez if you have no hand?

Bmore,

Your confusing the Post with the Times.  The Post is actually quite conservative (and was Rupert Murdoch's first foray into media).
