    What number would he wear?


    Background:

    My boss and his wife are huge Georgia fans (season ticket holders despite the fact they've lived in Austin for the last 3 years) and will soon be making their yearly trek to Jacksonville for the Georgia v. Florida game and, of course, The Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. Due to the game's close timing with Halloween, my boss has decided he will go to the game dressed as Darth Vader. But, he wants Vader to be a football player and, therefore, he should have a number. He asked me what number that should be. While I enjoy Star Wars, I'm no where near the kind of fan that could answer this question. I know there are some of you on here that could.

    His soccer jersey is 7. That could be totally random though.

    One person in our office figured "V" for the Empire Strikes Back

    He would probably be doing the death choke CITY-WIDE on all the fans who don't BELIEVE.

    I'd say he was #1 with the force.

    RAIDERS have one dude already leading them:

    Darth Vader would be terrible at calling audibles.

    So he should play for the Texans where audibles are not allowed.

    The V and Empire Strikes back have no bearing on Vader's name. He was Vader by Episode III's end. :eek:

    NO. First he became Darth Vader. THEN the order 66 came. :mad: Haven't you watched Revenge of the Sith?!?!?

    I'm thinking he's got to be a quarterback to maximize his mastery of the force to win games. So you can eliminate everything 20+.

    I could see him as the texans qb. Hes got the bald head and robotic movements already. He's also great in the regular season (ep. 4 &5) but got soft in the playoffs (rotj).

    He would be #13 -- he has terrible luck.

    He would wear #13 because that's my favorite number.
