OT: The Shatner Launch

A little off-topic, but is anyone catching the Space Launch LIVE of New Shepard Mission NS-18. It will be carrying actor William Shatner (Captain James T. Kirk) into the breaches of space. I know Amazon is doing a partners with Tech up in NOVA. Anyone know if any Hokies are involved with this momentous occasion?

Bezos' bald head is kinda giving me the Lex Luthor/Dr. Evil vibe there.

Here we go, the final play of the game. IT’S INTERCEPTED! IT’S INTERCEPTED BY BANKS! HE’S RUNNING IT ALL THE WAY DOWN THE SIDELINE! THE GAMECLOCK WINDS OUT! ANTONIO BANKS TAKES IT IN!

Can't wait till he reaches the Shatosphere

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Braxton Burmeister, Ryan Willis, Josh Jackson, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

I can't look at the Blue Origin and not recall this scene from Austin Powers 🤣🤣🤣

If we don't all dress up like Apes for his return what really is the point of it all?

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

I'm giving you a pass and a leg because even though it's the wrong actor, that's funny as hell.

Yes that was the poor attempt at a joke that at least 10 people liked lol

C'mon. It was close enough for everyone here to get.

It's funny. It deserves legs.

I know how this ends....

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

If she'd put on the green face paint, he'd have never wanted to come back.

If someone weren't going to come back from the trip, it was always someone wearing red.

Honestly, I am happy for him. It is also kind of amazing that at his age he passed the medical necessary.

It pays to be famous, and to have a billionaire in your court.

To be the man you gotta beat the man!

i feel like "at his age" really undersells the fact that William Shatner is 90

I guess I should have explained that more. But yeah to be in the health to sustain the G forces from a rocket launch!

That's a hell of a priceline.com deal

If it's the Priceline connection, they should have gone for two crew members...

VT '10--US Citizen; Virginian By Birth; Texan By the Grace of God.

Rick Monday... You Made a Great Play...

Quality Troll, should have had one for Chris Pine as well
