Star Wars Day with the San Jose Sharks: May the 4th Be With You

MAY THE 4TH FOOTBALL

A Steelers fan donned the black and gold (and Imperial white) to celebrate May the Forth.

MAY THE 4TH HOCKEY

Half of the San Jose Sharks’ players look like they are descended from Wookiees, so it wasn’t hard for the team to get in the mood for Star Wars Day.

MAY THE 4TH MMA

MAY THE 4TH SOCCER

Sport Lisboa e Benfica ComC MHIH OM, commonly known as Benfica, has won more titles than any other club playing in Portugal’s Primeira Liga, but that doesn’t give them the right to wield light sabers on the pitch.

MAY THE 4TH HORSE RACING
