The Boat Show is in town!
Today, 3 of our interns were away at a Rays ECOT retreat. ECOT is our Employee Community Outreach Team (more information can be found here: http://mlb.mlb.com/tb/community/ecot.jsp). They were shoveling fossilized oyster shells into bags and then taking those bags out into the water to create oyster reefs to improve the eocsystem and the water.
Our entire sponsor manager team was taking a half-day and leaving for Clearwater to catch Rays play the Phillies at Bright House Field. Call it a work retreat.
At least one if not two of our managers were out sick.
That left at one point 3-4 of us just biding time in the office VERY quietly. I still had headshots to uncover. I was also present with a task of finding pictures of Rays crowd shots from ideally last season for some updated artwork for a partner's signage. This was a fun way to dig through pictures and see old sights. In the end, I found dozens of shots that hopefully satisfy our client.
In the end I took a partial half-day, call it a 3/4 day. I wandered the stadium, got those boat show pictures, helped another intern with somethings, socialized and kept reminding myself that even on a slow day at the office, my slow days at the office are in a Major League Baseball stadium selling and promoting baseball.
