If making out with Boba Fett at a ballgame was your dream, you missed your shot (vid)

And believe me, I am sure there are more than a few of you out there — both male and female — who secretly have wished for the opportunity to lay a smooch on everybody’s favorite galactic bounty hunter. But sadly, you missed your chance on Monday at Citi Field, as characters from Star Wars made an appearance at the stadium in conjunction with “Star Wars Night.”

Some of those characters, including the aforementioned Boba Fett, a Tusken Raider and an otherwise assorted mishmash of the many interesting inhabitants from the Star Wars universe even made an appearance on the Kiss Cam during the evening’s festivities, as seen in the above video.

I’m sure a grand time was had by one and all. Although the Mets did come up short in the actual game, losing to the visiting Washington Nationals by a score of 8-2 in a strangely scored extra-inning affair. But if I had my guess, the nerds and nerdettes who populated the stands on a “Star Wars Night” likely didn’t even notice the outcome. There were stormtroopers to smooch!
