We have another game!

We are scheduled to battle the Gungun's on Saturday.  Some may say that those guys are too skinny to play football.  But they are actually very strong.  We Jeddi might suffer another loss because we aren't allowed to use our force powers.  But hey!  We're organized this time!  I still haven't found a helmet for Master Ki-Adi-Mundee.  I was going to suggest that he clean the lockers but something told me he wouldn't appreciate that suggestion.  I'm afraid he may have to bow out of this one game though.

Here are photos explaining our defensive and offensive positions.
Yoduh said that too old he was to play football.  Be a coach he would.

Creativity Stretched to the LIMIT!

Augh!  Sorry I haven't been writing recently!  Well, I finally got a uniform for Briingluy Aft!  What I did was I bought a tent and then Padmae kindly offered to pay for me to put letters on it and for alterations.  Believe me, many alterations were needed to change a tent into a jersey and football pants!
Still looking for Master Ki-Adi-Mundee's helmet!  Any ideas?

"Multiple Uniform Issues..."

I really don't have anything to write about except the fact that the Jeddi have been working our rear ends off to try to get this football team working.  I've been having to get into shape which you know is something I DON'T like!  Also, the Jeddi Council crowned me "Head Uniform Manager."  I felt pretty good...until today.  I've been having multiple issues with uniforms.  First of all, we have this really chunky jeddi named Briingluy Aft.  When I say chunky I mean CHUNKY!  We tried to get him a jersey, but none would fit him (not even the XXXXXXL).  And that's not even TRYING to get him pants.  So he insists on wearing work clothes to practice (because he doesn't want to soil any good ones.)  One of his work outfits that he has a certain liking for is a t-shirt advirtising the "Purple Rabbits Soccer Team."  He said he got it free at one of his niece's soccer practices (it seems that he really supported the team's food bar.)  I don't know about the other jeddi but I'm not a huge fan of having a 340 pound "Purple Rabbit" running beside me.  It's bad for my image.  Anyway, we can't get rid of him because of his weight.  He's a very useful tackler if you know what I mean.  He almost smashed several sithes in the game last Saturday.  So since we can't get rid of him and we can't clothe him like the manly football player that he is...we'll just have to bear the brunt of the jokes like men.

I am also having TONS of issues with master Ki-Adi-Mundee.  He's VERY helpful in the uniform area, and very fit.  But I can't seem to find a helmet to fit his doubly smart noggin.  His head is as tall as two of mine and that's saying a lot!  Ugh...all this stress is giving me a headache.  I'd better go take a rest before plunging head first into the supermarkets to look for uniform odds and ends.

Ouch

I have just now recovered enough from our game on Saturday to write a post. The Sithes were more organized than we planned! I don't think that our lining up at the line wherever we wanted and just waiting for Master Wendu (he's our quarterback) to "throw us a long one" worked very well. The Sithes had runningbacks, linebackers,
and breakbackers...or whatever they are... We are going to hold a council today to decide how to organize our team.

Oh, the Gunguns have gotten a team together too! That makes five teams that will play eachother this season!

We Play "The Sithes" Saturday!

We finally got a football team together! We also induced the Sithes to
get one together as well as the Clones and the Bounty Hunters. We play the Sithes on Saturday! Wait...today is Saturday...! I have to go and do some stretches. I can tell I'm out of shape. The first practice we had, I ripped my favorite pair of Jeddi pants. I always wear baggy pants to football practice from now on...

Yes. American Sports are played here too...

The Jeddi Council is getting together a football team!  I wasn't invited to be the quarterback...probably more like a linebacker or some other big guy as I am rather large for a Jeddi.
I just can't wait.  Here's to starting a Jeddi version of "American Football!"

I Just Don't Believe This...

Neither will you!  LUKE CRASHED MY SHIP LAST NIGHT!!!  Okay...I'll probably get in trouble for saying that.  But he did get rear-ended by a fire hydrant!  It was one of those busy parking lots at the space academy.  He was trying to back his - MY ship out the parking space and he accidentally bumped a fire hydrant!  The fire hydrant wasn't any worse for the wear except a couple of scratches.  MY SHIP on the other hand has seen better days!  When I said "Not a Scratch!" the other day I had no idea that later that week my ship would come out of an accident with a fire hydrant having a back end looking like a banana just after being stepped on by a 467 pound gorilla!  Sure she still drives...but it's a bad thing for my image to have a smashed up ship with my signature bumper sticker "Honk if you love FUDGE!" on the back.  It's a good thing he got this job!  He will have to pay for repairs to my SHIP before he buys himself a new one!
Strangely, this smash with a fire hydrant has done my nerves a world of good.  Now that it has happened, I don't feel tense anymore.  But, man will I be glad to get that ship SAFELY back in our garage!

His Father's Nerves

Well!  Good news!  Luke GOT THE JOB!!!  His results were, as you remember, a little...unorthodox.  But the manager of the Nabu Lightsabers 'R Us factory said that Luke showed initiative in ordering that Making Lightsabers for Dummies book so quickly and making the two lightsabers in such a short time.  He said that was the mark of a true businessman.  "We...you, ah, probably won't be working on any lightsabers," he mentioned as he turned on the droopy blade, "But you can do something else...like....," he searched for a good, but safe job for everyone concerned, "...DRIVE OUR ARMORED TRUCK!"
Wow!  Lucky Luke!  I've always wanted to drive one of those!  It's the armored truck that they use to deliver lightsabers to different clients.  Why do they need an armored truck?  It's not because lightsabers are pricey, but because you have to have a "Lightsaber Weilding License" to purchase one and Space Pirates used to periodically raid the Lightsabers 'R Us trucks and get these deadly weapons.
Well, it's good that Luke got this job.  It pays well and he should get his new ship in no time!  Whew...

Disappointing Results...AGAIN!

Luke finished his second lightsaber yesterday.  Remember?  He's trying to get this job at the Lightsabers 'R Us factory?  Unfortunately...he forgot something else.  But, out of a sliver of hope that the owner of the Nabu Lightsabers 'R Us factory will have pity on him, he's going to bring his results to him later today.

I am heartbroken.  I sure hope he gets this job and saves for a new ship soon!  I am getting nervouser and nervouser.  I think my ability to use adverbs is suffering.  At least that's what Padmae tells me...

Oh, BTW: Today I have compiled the results for my readers' top five favorite posts for 2009!  Just look on the sidebar!
