The Seattle Seahawks won in dramatic fashion in primetime Monday night, taking over the top of the NFC West in the process.
But, who would have thought that a 'Baby Yoda' Russell Wilson would steal the show…
Yes, take a moment to re-read that last sentence.
Prior to Monday night’s game vs. the Minnesota Vikings, Seahawks Blogger Josh Cashman, who goes by @CableThanos_ on Twitter, posted this image:
The internet immediately fell in love with 'Baby Yoda.' The phenomenon derives from the new Disney Plus show, "The Mandalorian,” which depicts baby Yoda from the Star Wars series.
The Russell Wilson 'Baby Yoda' then took on a life of its own.
People started sharing it all across social media.
