Nick Offerman, Craig Robinson Stretch In Round 3 Of Their Cubs-White Sox Rivalry

We've been loving New Era Cap's ongoing series of ads featuring Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman (a Chicago Cubs fan and native of Minooka, Ill.) and The Office's Craig Robinson (a Chicago native repping the White Sox) engaging in some good-natured ribbing over whose team is better. And compared to the fights we've seen occur in what is the most personal of interleague baseball rivalries, "good-natured" is an understatement. (Here are Rounds 1 and 2 for reference.)

New Era has released the latest in the series, in which Offerman tells Robinson of his wish to sing at Wrigley Field during the seventh inning stretch. (It's a tradition we wish would end given some of the performances, Jeff Garlin's being the most recent.) When Offerman attempts to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and doesn't channel Duke Silver, Robinson wins another one for the South side by slow jamming the baseball standard.
