Friendly Encounters: Jason Fleigel, R2D2 and C3PO

Friendly Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.

Jason Fleigel is a bog fan of the Star Wars franchise.  Aside from his wife and the Chicago Blackhawks, he probably loves Star Wars more than anything.
I have met several of my all-time favorites and I can vividly remember the whole experience each time.  The memories and the feelings never leave you.  I must admit though, all of my favorites have been alive though.
Jason might argue that R2D2 and C3PO are alive.  He might also argue about everything else we discuss, but that is besides the point.  I am sure Jason was massively stoked to meet two of his favorite robots, whether they were alive or not.
The next time I saw him that happy, he was getting married.  I wonder if we could tie it all together.  If Heather wore a C3PO costume and a Blackhawks jersey over it, Jason might not be able to handle it.  Whether it is Heather, Star Wars, the Blackhawks or whatever else, it is always good to see Jason happy.
