Get your Scrant-on! Al Roker heads to ‘Office’ convention

Former Yorktown resident Al Roker headed to Scranton, Penn., on Friday to report the weather from the site of “The Office” convention, where thousands of Dunderheads sojourned for a weekend of festivities. In the process, he also interviewed nine of the show’s supporting actors: Angela Kinsey, Brian Baumgartner, Craig Robinson, Creed Bratton, Kate Flannery, Leslie David Baker, Oscar Nuñez and Phyllis Smith and Robert R. Shafer.

For the hard-core Mifflin Muffins out there, my Remote Access buddy Brian Howard does an excellent job of covering the event vicariously. Next year, we just might have to road-trip it down there.
