The sports world is no stranger to the famous series, as many athletes have used the film as inspiration for outfits, props and celebratory dances throughout the years.
Some teams have used the Star Wars brand for trolling purposes. Missouri Tigers football head coach Eli Drinkwitz brandished a lightsaber this past college football season after his team defeated the Florida Gators 24-23 in overtime. It was a direct response to Gators coach Dan Mullen in 2020 when he wore a Darth Vader costume to the news conference after his team beat Mizzou 41-17.
With Wednesday being the celebration of Star Wars, sports teams and athletes are taking part in the fun.
May the Fourth be with these sports figures
From the NFL's winningest player wielding a lightsaber to a Star Wars-themed broadcast, the force is strong with these sports figures.
