She Is Athletic (Sort of)

Cartier At NBC Universal And Focus Features' Golden Globes After Party

Believe it or not, Jenna Fischer played left field for the Taco Bell All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball game. Okay, I know that does not mean she is naturally athletic, but it felt like a good headline to bring you in. Thing is, I am not quite sure if she played well or not. I know she played. Either way, if you can catch and throw a softball, that makes you legally athletic, so I was right.
