As we eagerly await for the next season of “Dancing with the Stars” to begin, I can’t help but wonder, “What if other television shows featured Pittsburgh Steelers?” I have seen one, maybe two episodes of “Dancing with the Stars” and can’t stand Tom Bergeron. Yet, I am going to watch this show because of Hines Ward. If the addition of a Steeler makes me want to watch a show I don’t normally watch, then it would make my favorite shows even more AWESOME.
So, let’s have a fantasy cast of Steelers on various television shows, shall we?
So much intensity.
James Harrison on “Parks and Recreation”I think a scowl-off between James Harrison and Ron Swanson would be the finest half hour in television history. Nothing can change my mind.
Matt Spaeth on “Big Brother”
Something tells me that Spaeth would be a nice fit for the Big Brother House. Jeff Reed would be my original choice (actually, I think it’s a matter of time before he appears on the show), but since he’s no longer a Steeler he doesn’t really count.
Ben Roethlisberger on “Glee”
Auto-Tuned Billy Joel Extravaganza. I’m just sayin’. Plus, he was born in Lima. If this doesn’t work out, then there’s always “American Idol”.
Jeremy Kapinos and Shaun Suisham on “The Amazing Race”
These two have been with a combined ten teams in eleven total years. I think they know what it’s like to bounce from place to place. They may be right at home on this show.
Heath Miller on “My Name is Earl”
Okay, this show has been cancelled for quite a while now, but his name really is Earl. It’s not too soon for a remake, is it?
You’ll notice that I omitted the glaringly obvious choice of Mike Tomlin being on “House”. With good reason. Are we sure that he’s not on this show already? Have you ever seen Mike Tomlin and Omar Epps in the same place at the same time? Think about it.
What about you? Are there any shows that you think would be massively improved/epic with the addition of Steelers?
