    OT:Boy, 11, Uses Toy Lightsaber to Defend Mom From Attacker

    Boy, 11, Uses Toy Lightsaber to Defend Mom From Attacker


    Thursday, January 03, 2008

    An 11-year-old boy demonstrated The Force when he defended his mom by hitting an attacker with a toy lightsaber.
    The man, in his 30s, fled after being confronted by the youngster outside a bakery in Swardeston, near Norwich, England.
    Police said the boy hit the man with his toy after the man had punched and verbally abused his mother as she approached her car.
    Officers are appealing for witnesses to the Dec. 22 attack.
    Allan Jennings of the Norfolk Police said: "The incident caused quite a commotion and it is unlikely it would have gone unnoticed."

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Wait, it wasn't a real lightsaber? This story just lost 10 cool points.

    I doubt it. If you'd played Knights of the Old Republic you'd know that only Level 10 Jedi Knights can wield double-bladed lightsabers. I don't think this kid is a Level 10 yet.

    As a father of a young boy who has four or five lightsabers, I can vouch for the fact that they hurt like hell when you get whacked upside the head with one. Or on the shins, or elsewhere for that matter.

    HK-47 was the man.
