Playing hard?

I ran across this in a job description: "This individual should be prepared to operate in a fast-paced, deadline-oriented environment where they will enjoy working hard, playing hard and being an integral part of a close-knit team."

Playing hard? I associate that phrase mostly with the "work" culture that characterized the original SNL. Think John Belushi. Is that who they are looking for? I don't think they mean having a pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday, including one six-pack of beer between forty people and a rip-roaring game of Balderdash. I'd better not apply.

We did play Cajun music at the pancake party. Does that count?
