Not the one your thinking!
I’m talking about Revenge of the Sith. What a great movie in my opinion. Always remember greatness in in the eye of the beholder….so really the movie could be horrible, just not on my end.
So its funny how everyone calls the Yankees the "Evil Empire" and you have the Darth Vader music playing when they’re in town. So let’s elaborate.
So, being an Oriole fan I know the sad truth of how the New York Yankees became this "Evil Empire". A long time ago, in a city not so far far away from New York, the city of Baltimore once had a professional baseball team. Things were good for a while but as economics would have it, this Baltimore city could no longer sustain a team. The powerful city of New York swooped in and took over the franchise, vowing to take over professional baseball, and then, the world.
After changing the name from Highlander to the Yankees, the team learned of a powerful one born in the city from which they came. This person could possibly change the balance of power and finally give the city of New York the chosen one they were looking for. This man, know as Babe Ruth was lured into the dark side by stealing him away from Red Sox of Boston. Soon, to these same Red Sox, Ruth became known to put a curse on the team. After the Yankees transformed the Babe into the evil Darth Bambino, the curse had continued for many lifetimes.The dynasty had begun and for many many years, the Empire grew stronger and became the powerful team they had strived for. The only thing left for the taking, was the world.
Fast forward. It is still a dark time for baseball. The Empire was now controlled by Emperor Steinbrenner. He is the most powerful Emperor this city has ever seen. After a few years of being mediocre, the Emperor called upon his allies in Corperatia, which sent millions of dollars to fund the Empire. The cycle was complete.
Something happened in the year 2004, however. After many battles lost by the Yanks, including the defeat by the hands of the Diamondbacks of Arizona and Marlins of Florida, the team began to weaken. The small rebel forces in Boston took advantage of this, and after many years of oppression, finally defeated the Evil Empire.
And this year, the new cycle continues as the reborn Orioles of Baltimore have found a new savior in the young Brian Roberts. At this time, these Orioles are on top of their old rulers, watching carefully as the two powers belt it out below them. The New Republic of baseball has been born.
Alright, I’m a geek and proud of it. Have a nice day.
