PHOTO: The Force is strong with Jets safety’s ‘EmPryor Strikes Back’ shirt
The world is just two days away from the official release of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," and anticipation is out of this world. In the New York Jets locker room, a handful of players are excited about the film hitting theaters. Center Nick Mangold has made several "Star Wars" references in the past two weeks, and now safety Calvin Pryor is feeling the Force.
Pryor was wearing an all-time great "Star Wars"-themed T-shirt in the locker room on Wednesday, cleverly playing off his name and "The Empire Strikes Back."
"Star Island: EmPryor Strikes Back" is as witty as it gets. Hats off to whoever came up with the idea, because it’s fantastic. If Pryor were to sell that shirt, he’d make a boatload of money from Jets and "Star Wars" fans alike (hint hint).
