Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Mark Hamill is fairly active on Twitter, and the other day someone asked him if he liked Wolves. He faved the tweet. A fan podcast hosted by fans of Wolverhampton FC, the soccer club in question nicknamed Wolves, noted that interaction and wondered if Hamill was indeed a fan of the team.

Somehow, that was enough to convince Mark Hamill to actually choose Wolves as the soccer team he supports:


Americans who root for a European soccer club all have dumb little stories about how they came up with their favorite team. Who’s to say Hamill’s is any sillier than those?

While Wolves supporters may have been nice to Hamill on Twitter, the team currently plays in the second division of English football. It’s a bit of a mismatch for Luke Skywalker to be a fan of a lowly Championship club.
