I've been to Star Wars night twice - Cincinnati in 2009 and Detroit in 2011. When the promotions schedule was announced and Star Wars night was part of it, I really wanted to go. My brother looked at tickets for my birthday but any price we would be willing to pay was long gone in April.
Wait a few months. Wait for a rainy Saturday forecast and a sub .500 team and there were a plethora of tickets to be had last minute. Add in a friend who crawled out of the woodwork and asked if I wanted to go. Heck yeah!

The upgrade didn't cost anything, but it wasn't free either. The price was being filmed as the "fans of the game" which would be shown on the scoreboard in the 3rd inning. Oh the embarrassment! He took a video of our video and I'm waiting for him to send it. I'll post as soon as I have it :)
In the 5th inning I realized we had prime people-watching seats, so during every half inning break, I turned backward in my chair and watched the concourse.
I saw one of the rebel pilots walk by. It was like a light flashed in my head. WE NEED TO GET VADER OR A STORM TROOPER OR A ROYAL GUARD IN THIS BOX WITH US!!!! I mentioned it to my friend, he was off like a shot and not five minutes later, returned with...dun dun dun... a Storm Trooper!!!!
He was my date for the night! We held hands, we smooched, we relaxed and watched the game together. Does life get any better than that????
