Today is May fourth, and for those of you that don’t know, it is ‘Star Wars Day’. This is because of the saying that grew popular from the movies, “may the force be with you”. Since today is May fourth, this has been turned into, “may the fourth be with you”.
Stupid? Probably. But it gives big sports sites time to make cool analogies between the movies and football, and more often than not, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are involved.
