When medical dramas and football collide

Okay, so I’m not the only brainiac who has been pointing out how much Dr. Foreman, from the show House, and Mike Tomlin, head coach from the Steelers, look alike.

And I’m sure I’m not the only annoying brainiac who spends part of every televised Steelers game saying, “Dr. Foreman, you’re needed in emergency! Stat!” every time they cut to the sidelines and show Coach.

And I’ll bet I’m not the only one who said, while watching a press conference this week when Tomlin said Roethlisberger’s head injury was nothing to worry about, “Are you sure it’s not sarcoidosis, Dr. Foreman?”

So that’s how I know I wasn’t the only joyful brainiac who was tickled when, on this week’s episode of House, House himself made a reference to Tomlin (“This must be how Mike Tomlin feels!”) and the camera cut to Dr. Foreman. Squee! I love when worlds collide.
