This year's Rose Parade has an extra dork factor involved. George Lucas is the Grand Marshal and he invited the fan club "501st Legion" (made up of dorky fans worldwide) to accompany him in the parade.... dressed as Stormtroopers. The club has 3,000 members who appear at fundraisers and charitalble events and 200 Stormtroopers will be marching behind Lucas alongside 2 Star Wars themed floats. One float will be the "Endor" float with Ewoks (sigh) and the other will be the "Naboo" float with 3 hotties dressed as Padme and 2 Jedis. Makes total sense because those are the 2 planets fans want to see in a Star Wars parade, right? Jesus, George! Are you truly THAT removed from your fans? Anyway, check out the parade if you're awake and your hangover isn't too torturous.
