When I was a kid I obsessed over Star Wars, Batman, Lego and baseball.
My brother and I played all 4 constantly, but there wasn’t any cross over.
Chewbacca never showed up in Gotham City. There was no Lego baseball stadium.
And we had space advantures in Lego, but they were always the cool Lego spacemen with the helmet, airtank and the spaceship zooming around the moon logo on their chest and spaceships.
We played with them whenever we weren’t also playing Star Wars, Batman or baseball.
There was an order to the universe.
Well this Christmas something changed in the fabric of the universe.
A friend of the family gave my boys these Lego figures of baseball players.
Specifically Kevin Youkilis and David Ortiz. They came with a Red Sox cap, the correct facial hair, a bat and also a glove. (Very interesting to see Big Papi with a glove.)
But consider the fact that there is Lego Batman now… and Lego Star Wars is everywhere, I wonder if I would have been able to deal with all of this childhood fun overlapping.
Oh who am I kidding? It would have been awesome.
