Jeff Green seems like a nice guy. I haven't been able to put my minor in "making something out of nothing journalism" to any use at all with him because there doesn't seem to be a single negative thing about him personally on the web.
In an explosive Sci-Fi faux pas, Jeff Green gave a Star Trek answer to a Star Wars question.
Are you sitting down? Good… cuz this will
Do you know Star Wars at all? Have you seen Star Wars?
JG: "I've seen the last one."
The last one? Not all of them? I was going to ask you, if you could be one character from that whole series, who would it be? I don't know if you know any of them.
JG: "From the new one, yeah. Because I liked his character, he was fun. It was like he was outgoing, he didn't care, he was just a smart guy."
JG: "Scotty. Isn't that Star Wars? No, that's… that's Star Trek! Isn't that the same thing?"
No, Jeff. They are not. Why don't you stab my mom in the eye with a lightsaber? Oh wait… YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS!!!!
This is a sad day for Jeff Green… because today he has drawn the ire of both Star Wars AND Star Trek nerds. And really, once an athlete has lost them… what does he have left? The love and adoration of the remaining 95% of the population? Good luck with THAT. If you're one of THOSE people… then you might be interested to know he's got a Nike fetish and he likes Will Smith. It's all in that link.
Seriously, Jeff… you might as well retire. It's over for you now.
