We here at 97.1 The Ticket take our work very seriously and when we’re not on the air we’re busy working on our next show. Tuesday morning was no exception. Scan the internet for interesting, off the wall stories? No. Record some bit we’ll play on the air? No…Our phone screener Greg was bouncing a miniature basketball in our office and I said, “let’s head out into the hallway and see if I can throw strikes.”

Theron umpired, Greg was the catcher and I displayed my arsenal (Jim Price would be impressed). Now, if I could only throw a baseball like that, I might have a shot at the Big Club. What is it that you do to goof off at work?
