You're Risking Fans' Patience!
House's similes took a turn towards the Roscoe! Report's territory last week.
You don't start him on ECMO and that infection could rampage through his body like Pistons fans after a championship."
Now, House, us in the greater "D" area haven't truly rioted since the Tigers in '84. (I'm not counting anything that has happened at MSU, because well, they just don't count.) The thing is, House the character should know that, as he attended the University of Michigan as an undergrad with Dr. Cuddy and her lovely cleavage.
House should have been in Southeastern Michigan around the mid-80s, and should know that the D really gets out of hand when the Tigers do well, which hasn't happened in a while. I'm normally a big House fan. It's one of the few shows that has been plugged relentlessly during the MLB playoffs that hasn't royally sucked. It just feels like the writers were stretching on this one.
[Thanks to Tvgasm for the screenshot of Cuddy. And also for allowing me to waste my time reading re-caps of television shows I've already watched.]
