Red Standing By

From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans

A reference to the beginning of the Death Star attack scene in the original Star Wars movie, the first posters in open threads often say something like "Red Five Standing By" to indicate their readiness to comment.

This has a history of being followed by other posters replying with red (or possibly other colors using in that Star Wars scene) related images. Typically, each subsequent commenter will try to outdo the other either in cleverness, obscurity, hilarity or all of the above.
