Episode 2014: A New Hope


Simply because I’m a geek – I’ll let my inner Star Wars express my feelings about the team’s outlook from one year ago compared to today…

A long time ago at a Citi Field far, far away…


I’ve got a very bad feeling about this.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Who’s the more foolish? The fool, or the fool who follows him?

Sorry about the mess.

That… Is why you fail.

Well, you said you wanted to be around when I made a mistake…

If you’re saying that coming here was a bad idea, I’m starting to agree with you.

And I thought they smelled bad on the outside.

What have you done? I’m BACKWARDS!

These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.

I’d just as soon kiss a wookie.

If there’s a bright center to the universe, you’re at the planet that it’s farthest from.

No reward is worth this.

Until this battle station is fully operational, we are vulnerable.

Now let’s blow this thing and go home.

But as 2013 turns to 2014, there is something we haven’t felt in a very long time…. a new hope…


Ben! I can be a Jedi! Ben! Tell him I’m ready!


My ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Its energy surrounds us.

The Force is strong with this one.

Do or do not. There is no try.

He certainly has courage.

Never tell me the odds!

You must unlearn what you have learned.

You look strong enough to pull the ears off a gundark.

Clear your mind of questions.

We shall double our efforts.

I see you have constructed a new light saber. Your skills are complete. Indeed you are as powerful as the Emperor has foreseen.
