While Forward Madison FC doesn’t need any help filling the seats at Breese Stevens Field, it doesn’t hurt to bring in an actor from one of TV’s most beloved shows.
On Aug. 28, actor Leslie David Baker will make an appearance at the team’s home match against Greenville Triumph SC at Breese Stevens Field. Fans of The Office will recognize Baker as Stanley Hudson, a prickly-but-lovable paper salesman at Dunder Mifflin. It seems the show’s series finale was especially prescient, as Stanley carved a little wooden Phyllis with flamingo legs.
For $32, attendees will get a “Stanley Pack” that includes a game ticket, special t-shirt, and two of Stanley’s favorite things: a soft pretzel and a crossword puzzle. We can only hope ’Mingo soccer will bring Baker as much joy as Pretzel Day brought his famous character. On a personal note, I once sat across from Mr. Baker in LAX’s United terminal. It was like 4 a.m. and he was flying to Miami, which in retrospect is almost too perfect. Florida Stanley is the best Stanley.
Get your Stanley Pack! 🥨
$32 gets you a match ticket, a soft pretzel, a crossword puzzle, and a Forward/Office tee for our Aug. 28 game!
