With the new season of The Office kicking off tomorrow night on NBC, we thought we’d put together our own “Sports Office”, using the original characters as inspiration.
Jim — Chris Cooley
The coolest guy in the office meets perhaps the coolest guy in sports. Both are pranksters and love having fun at work.
Pam — Mrs. Chris Cooley
Of course Jim has to get the hottest girl, in this case a former cheerleader, unlike Pam.
Michael — Al Davis
Has kind of lost it, but still thinks that he knows what he is doing. Has a semi-irrational hatred of Lane Kiffin.
Toby — Lane Kiffin
Has a tough job in a tough company, and has to deal with a crazy boss who hates his guts. Both are leaving their present jobs, although I’m not sure if Kiffin has plans to go to Costa Rica.
Dwight — Shaquille O’Neal
They both think that they are cops, as well as talking way too much. Both get the job done pretty well though, Shaq on the court, Dwight in sales.
Creed — Julio Franco
Dude is like 56 years old or something.
Angela — Ashley Harkleroad
Seems like a prude, but if you wait a while, you see things like appearances in Playboy or making out with an ex-boyfriend after you just got engaged.
Meredith — Adam Jones
He likes to drink, she likes to drink. He likes drive recklessly, she likes to get by cars. He likes strippers, she likes to strip. Close enough for us.
Ryan — Martina Hingis
Prodigy at a young age. Went further than anyone thought. Struggled after some time at the top. Coke problem.
Well, we got you started, finish out the list and come up with your best sports figures for Darryl, Phyllis, Jan, Kelly, Oscar, and anyone else we missed. Send it to us using the comment form below.
