While I’m driving around in my truck, I’m usually listening to ESPNRadio on XM. It’s always entertaining because it’s mostly sports, and a little pop culture. Well, for the last three days, I’ve heard Dan Patrick mention The Office on his show. The first time he was proclaiming that Dwight K Schrute could be one of the best sitcom characters of all time.
The second time, he was talking to Chris Fowler, who would be broadcasting a college football game later that day on ESPN. Dan Patrick said, ” Well, I have to be honest with you. I won’t be watching the game tonight. Not with The Office on.”
Dan Patrick straight sold out his own network to watch The Office.
As you can imagine, I thought it was pretty cool to hear about The Office on The Dan Patrick Show. (I wrote Dan an email to drop by LITO.)
My question is, do you ever hear people talking about The Office in your day to day life? All of my extended family are fans so they always want to ask me questions about the show when I talk with them. None of the guys people in my company watch the show so I don’t get to make Office jokes with them. (My Michael Scott impersonations never go over well in our video conferences.)
How prevalent is The Office in your day to day doings?
I thought it would be interesting to show you guys the GeoMap Overlay of the visitors to the site in the last month. The bigger the circle, the more the visitors. The Office is obviously quite popular in the Pennsylvania area and in LA. I think that circle toward the bottom is Houston, TX. But, that is just a guess.
There have been a few readers to request for the international map. So let it be written, so let it be done.
