Shelf ball

Posted by ESC on March 18, 2003

SHELF BALL - ".Ever since a series of ESPN commercials premiered in January showing Dilberts playing an office sport of their own creation - basically, throwing a ball into a shelf and trying to get it to stay - the game's taken off in offices across the nation." There is an online version at espn.go.com/brandcentral (Newsweek, March 24, 2003.)

I didn't see the commercial. "Dilberts," I am assuming, refers to the comic strip character Dilbert.
