Seahawks QB Russell Wilson goes full Baby Yoda after beating Vikings


Baby Yoda has become the new internet sensation. It’s pretty easy to see why. Star Wars is one of the most popular movie franchises of all-time. Baby Yoda is the new hot thing, as the adorable baby that was built for memes (go check out all the “Baby Yoda turns on ____ song” meme for proof).

This has leaked into the NFL. Someone photoshopped Baby Yoda to give him the full Russell Wilson treatment. Hair, eye black, hat, and jersey number.

This went pretty popular in a short amount of time. And after the Seattle Seahawks beat the Minnesota Vikings 37-30 on Monday Night Football, Wilson celebrated. He celebrated by embracing the meme.

This seemed like something that would be right up Wilson’s alley. So it really doesn’t come as much of a surprise that he is indeed having fun with it.

Wilson has a lot to celebrate too. The win gave the Seahawks a 10-2 record on the season. That moved them out of a Wild Card spot, and into the lead of the NFC West.

This is incredibly important because now instead of having a Wild Card game, they could end up with a bye in the first round and some lovely home field advantage.

Wilson did not just tweet out the picture though. He even changed his avatar on Twitter to the same thing. Of course, by the time you’re reading this he may have changed it to something else, but at least for a little bit, that was the case.

Wilson and the Seahawks are one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL. Even the cuteness of Baby Yoda can’t mask that fact.
