Hearing John Krasinski a) endorse the Olympic bid and b) just say the word “Cubs”…well, I think I’m feeling a little faint ;) fancynewbeesly August 25, 2009 aaww he’s so cute. lol when he starts listing sports teams, he started with bears, and i thought he was going to say “bears, beets, battlestar galactica.” major office freak right here =)[from tanster: lol!] Sara August 25, 2009 Really, ItsOnlyMeredith? Hearing him say *that word* kind of made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. ;PWhen was he in Chicago? I apparently missed a good stalking opportunity. Diapers Schrute August 25, 2009 YES YES YESMy life is complete. Joanna August 25, 2009 #1 Meredith – hahaha i had the exact same fainting feeling when he said Cubs. lol Oh John… just move here already.secondly – memo to me… buy tickets to basketball events in 2016…. Delmy August 25, 2009 If the Olympics coming to Chicago means 3 hour commutes to anywhere you need to go in the city BUT possible sightings of John — I’m game for it :P Robaroo August 25, 2009 My boyfriend and I were just talking about this the other day…it would be cool to have the Olympics here, but my gosh, traffic is bad enough…lol. But I’m not really laughing out loud. MrsKrasinski August 25, 2009 :D ok2bconfused August 25, 2009 Yes, traffic IS bad already. But that’s what public transportation is for! And I will most certainly be buying tickets to basketball games too…Cubs rule! Sammie August 25, 2009 I think I just came to love John more than I already did. I have the same reaction as ItsOnlyMeredith. 1) He supports my home town and 2.) He said “Cubs.” Ahhh how wonderful! phyllis*farm August 26, 2009 I’m geeking out on the amount of Cubs fans here. Junior August 26, 2009 We Cubs fans are everywhere even though I feel like hiding with the way they’ve been playing. phyllis*farm August 27, 2009 At least I’ll have The Office in a few weeks to drown my sorrows in. And the Bears.
