Cardinals plead for Buccaneers help on Twitter, 'Star Wars' style
The Arizona Cardinals need help to get in the playoffs. And they're not above begging with Star Wars references either.
The Arizona Cardinals have a pretty solid social media presence on Twitter. The account does a nice job of blending humor with a "corporate" account. For instance, they threw out a single line when the 49ers sealed a victory over the Falcons with a pick six on Monday.

Atlanta losing meant the Cards could win 11 games and still miss the playoffs if the Buccaneers don't beat the Saints on Sunday in Week 17. Naturally the Cardinals are asking for help in that game.
You probably figured it out, but this is a Star Wars reference.
Tampa later responded in kind.
@AZCardinals Pundits are giving us as much a chance as they gave the rebels against the Death Star. We all know how that worked out.— Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@TBBuccaneers) December 28, 2013
The Bucs should probably be careful though, just because, well, you know.
And it's not like Tampa has a real great shot of helping Arizona out. Leaving Arizona all like:
