Geek is chic these days, definitely a good idea. Will encourage people to pick up tickets for the game if they're borderline. For an example of a bad marketing idea, look at how Michigan was recently giving out 2 free tickets with purchase of Coke products.

Miami plays the Stormtrooper/Darth Vader Imperial March star wars song at their games. I think they should have went the other way and we play light side. But, what nerd would not want a Stormtrooper Helmet over a Skywalker mask. Of course they could have gave away authentic blue light sabers.

Those worried about GT projecting a nerdy image should go to get some refreshments during our band's halftime show. "A Tribute to Science " might be too much for them.

Are storm trooper masks just for students or can kiddos wear them as well.

My boy wants to wear one ..but we aren't in the student section or near it..
Big deal?

The free ones are for students only. You should be able to get the mask at any number of the Halloween/Costume shops that just opened in the last few weeks.

I'd say bring it! The more people unified the better. They're only giving them to students but everyone should bring one if they can

He has one that lights up so I'm sure he will want to wear it.
I just didn't want him to stick out like a ruby in a goats butt by wearing it.
Especially if we aren't in the designated sections.
So wear it he shall ;) (in my Yoda voice)
;)
