Cheer The Toledo Walking Carpets

MudhensFans around the country are preparing to celebrate Star Wars weekend — “May the Fourth Be With You” (Saturday, May 4) and “Revenge of the Fifth” (Sunday, May 5). The luckiest will be those attending Toledo Mud Hens minor league baseball games. The team is going to wear Chewbacca-themed jerseys and allow fans to participate in all kinds of activities — 

  • Kazoo giveaway (first 3,000 fans) for postgame Kazoo-Along to Star Wars music
  • Appearances by Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion, including Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Storm Troopers, and X-Wing Pilots
  • Star Wars themed face painting opportunities
  • Star Wars costume photo booth
  • Star Wars-themed food and beverage items, including Yoda Soda, Darth Chocolate Brownie Sundae, and MORE
  • Star Wars sound effects and music throughout the game
  • Star Wars-themed postgame fireworks (Saturday only)

At last Toledo will show its true face to a world that thinks John Denver said it all (“They roll back the sidewalks precisely at ten / And people who live there are not seen again…”)

And if the Wookiees win, that will be a good thing.

  1. It would help if everyone kept the same tempo. They’re like an orchestra without a conductor.

    I liked the Devo sunglasses on the triplets.

    (“Are we not fen?” “We are NESFA!”)

    Don’t forget that the Mud Hens were the team beloved by Cpl. Klinger on M*A*S*H.

  2. I’m not sure, but I think I’d rather walk around in a T-shirt that read, “Bozo, the World’s Most Funniest Clown.” The one the Mud-Hens will be wearing are in too much good taste.
