Photos from the Phoenix Suns' "Star Wars Night" on Sunday against the Sacramento Kings. Posted by Ben Golliver. 

On Sunday night, the Phoenix Suns hosted the Sacramento Kings but, more importantly, also staged their second annual Star Wars night, humorously titled "Star Wars: The Clone Wars Night Episode 2." Whatever. The timing was perfect, as Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins crossed over to the dark side on Saturday night and was left inactive for the game.

Star Wars Bight featured all sorts of themed prizes, t-shirts, and photo opportunities for fans, but the centerpiece for the night's festivities was a bunch of Star Wars dorks dressing up in costume for the rest of us internet dorks to laugh at. Let's take a look at some of the pictures from the evening, which include shots taken on the court, in the dressing room prior to the game and during the team's television broadcast.

The event is the brainchild of the Suns' webmaster, Jeramie McPeek. In the days leading up to Star Wars Night, McPeek posted the following shots on Twitpic.

If a person collects football or basketball memorabilia they are called sports enthusiasts, but a person collects Star Wars memorabilia or even makes movie quality costumes they are called a dork.  Putting labels and sterotyping is wrong.  I bet there were a lot of happy kids last night, too bad nobody got their opinion.

GG ripping on people doing volunteer and charity work. Very noble of you, as we can now see that you are much better than any of the 501st, Rebel Legion, or Mando Mercs, who put copious amounts of time and money into raising funds and awareness for various causes, visiting kids in hospitals, and generally making the world a tiny bit happier. Really, you win.

Wow, you just called people who do work for Charities to help raise money for Children with Terminal illness, get their Wish.  And people who costume for Charities like Saint Jude's Children's hospital, Ronald McDonald House just to name a few of the worthy charities that the 501st Garrisons and their counterparts Rebel Legion, do.  Calling these people dorks and losers is showing just goes to prove ignorance.

I recommend that before you through stones and JUDGE these people the 501st and Rebel Legion, that you go to their websites and take a good look at how much GOOD they do for the communities charities. 

I am ashamed that a reporter would use such verbage in their column. 







What have you done to help the less fortunate in your community?
