Sean Doolitte is clearly a huge Star Wars fan. His girlfriend? Not so much.

Doolittle, a closer for the Oakland Athletics, surprised his girlfriend with opening night tickets to see the SciFi thriller. She was, shall we say, less than thrilled. The couple chronicled their “date” on Twitter, and it’s pretty hilarious stuff.

First, he surprised her with an “outfit.”

She followed up that tweet by pleading with Major League Baseball to start the season again.

Meanwhile, he was loving it.

Even Brandon McCarthy, the best professional athlete on Twitter, chimed in.

They even took a “movie poster pic.”

As for the movie, only one of them reviewed it on Twitter. It was Doolittle.

I feel like, in a way, we are all this couple. Some of us love Star Wars and have been dying to see this movie for months. Others, and I fall in this category, have never seen a full Star Wars film start to finish and have very little knowledge of what is going on outside of “Luke, I am your father.”

I’ll eventually be dragged by my friends to see this movie, too. Everyone will love it, and I will have no idea what is going on. If I had to guess what happens, some good Space Guys™ defeat some bad Space Guys™ with their sweet laser guns on some fictitious planet in some fictitious galaxy right before everything goes to shit.

Is that right? Probably. I have no idea. At the very least, I can guarantee you I won’t be forced into some costume to watch it. That, alone, is a major victory.
