"The Office" LOVES Boston

Ok, since my blood has pinstripes in it, it pains me to write about this but a lot of the Office crew are big Boston Red Sox fans. Eh, they can't be all perfect I guess. has this little piece about the huge exhibition game in LA between the Dodgers and Red Sox:

"It's been widely reported that tonight's exhibition game between the Red Sox and the Dodgers will draw the biggest crowd ever to watch a baseball game, and as you might expect, there'll be few boldfaced BoSox fans in the sea of Dodger blue. "Grey's Anatomy" actress and Everett native Ellen Pompeo is expected to attend with husband Chris Ivery, as is Ellen's castmate, Mainer Patrick "McDreamy" Dempsey. (His peeps said he'd make at least one of the Sox's three weekend games on the West Coast.) LA top cop Bill Bratton was set to bring wife Rikki Klieman, and Medford's Maria Menounos told us she wouldn't miss it. Boston-bred actors Jonathan Moss Tucker and Jeffrey Donovan were on board, as was "The Office" gang, including Steve Carell, B.J. Novak, and John Krasinski. We'll bet the LA Coliseum hasn't played host to so many Bostonians since John F. Kennedy delivered his acceptance speech at the 1960 Democratic National Convention. Of course, some of the Sox super fans will be MIA, including actors Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Mike O'Malley, and "Hostel" director Eli Roth, who told us he'll be busy celebrating Quentin Tarantino's birthday in Las Vegas."

And, I guess I can't NOT post this whole John Krasinski loves Boston stuff over at Boston Magazine.
