New York Post Front Page Gots Us Excited About Upcoming Jets-Patriots Playoff Game


Brilliant. Just brilliant. That’s how we would describe today’s cover of The New York Post. The work of art (pictured below) is very much in the same vein of the publication’s penchant for wacky/witty/groan-inducing word play, but this one certainly takes the cake. We don’t even know where to start, but we’ll try.

First, the obvious: painting Bill Belichick and the Patriots as Darth Vader and the Empire while, too easy, is still well done. Good work, guys.

But then you get to the Jets, and oh geez. Mark Sanchez as a brooding Luke Skywalker, Joe Namath as Yoda (NAMATH! YODA!), Michelle Ryan as the enslaved Princess Leia. Seriously? But the one that most certainly takes the cake is none other than Sexy Rexy Ryan being depicted as Han Solo. That’s a little generous, isn’t it NY Post? If you wanted to portray Ryan as someone from the Star Wars character, the most obvious pick would have been Jabba.

Gah, we can’t wait until Sunday!
