Chewbacca, Jersey

As 'N Sync once didn't say in their hit "It's Gonna Be Me," "It's gonna be...May."

Tomorrow, actually. Which means it's also about to get a whole lot nerdier up in here, what with the impending Star Wars Weekend: May 4 (May the Fourth Be With You) and May 5 (Revenge of the Fifth). Har har! Get it?

To celebrate, minor league baseball team Toledo Mud Hens are busting out new uniforms for the weekend: These dope Chewbacca-inspired ones! And it's all for a good cause, because once Star Wars Weekend wraps, the jerseys will be auctioned off to support the Spina Bifida Association of Northwest Ohio.

Yoda Soda (clever!) will also be sold at the stadium, and 3,000 kazoos will be distributed for a postgame Star Wars concert.

Finally, jocks and nerds will coexist in peace. And we have a Wookiee to thank for it.
