That's What She Said

Armed with bobbleheads and vaguely inappropriate humor, one group of workplace misfits has infiltrated pop culture for the better part of the last decade.

No...not the Cyclones.  I'm talking about The Office!

Anyone who has ever worked in an office can relate to something about the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin (a division of Sabre).  The high-strung accountant, the poorly-hidden games of solitaire, the malfunctioning copy machine, the boss who's just a little "off" and thinks of himself as an undiscovered stand-up comedian/improv entertainer (not us, one here can relate to that at all).  It's so real that it's ridiculous, and so ridiculous that it's real. 

That's why, on August 4th, the Cyclones will host a Salute to The Office, and celebrate office workers and the workplace shenanigans that make being a 9-to-5er so great (and, sometimes, so awful).

We'll be playing Office Olympics games between innings, collecting beet donations throughout the game, airing your best workplace stories, challenging you to trivia contests, and offering prizes (like free tickets) to anyone named Michael Scott or anyone who shows up dressed like Dwight Schrute.

So sharpen your pocket protectors, and start practicing your paper airplanes.  It's going to be a fun-filled night like you've never had before. (That's what she said.)
