I’m not a football fan. I know to some this equates to some sort of sacrilegious disregard that calls into question my male full red blooded Americanism, but I assure you that I am and do have others willing to testify on my behalf. I also feel the need to point out that I in fact DO watch The Superbowl. Where else am I going to see the best corporate commercials created?
The big story this past week that was touched on by multiple bloggers is actually about the hypothetical situation of Broncos Quarterback Tim Tebow becoming a paramedic…
- Sean Eddy, the blogger who started it all with his Celebrity Medic series, explains the extreme limitations on Paramedic Tebow
- Greg Friese chose to imagine the dialogue between Paramedic Tebow and an ED doc
- Justin Schorr thinks that both Paramedic Tebow’s patients and career would be shortlived
- Kelly Grayson (who apparently knows ALOT about football AND sudden deaths) thinks that even though Medic Tebow would be the root cause of a mass casualty incident, he’d still be able to stand and deliver for the faithful
- CCC offers his take and has Medic Tebow learning from Johnny and Roy at home… which may be an actual improvement on our current educational system even if Tim Tebow never becomes a paramedic
- Remember how I said I’m not a football fan, well I figured out enough from pop culture and media references to know that Medic Tebow would change his make-up to the Parable of The Good Samaritan
In other non-Tebow related posts around the EMS Blogosphere:
- EMS 12-Lead gave us a behind the scenes peek at Code STEMI, a new web series being produced in cooperation with the First Responders Network
- Ambulance Junkie took a look at some National Assessment data and seems to agree that Frankly, Basics, They Don’t Give A Damn
- Probie MK isn’t shufflin’… she’s tryin’
- Rogue Medic provides his trademark through critique of the case where a violent patient (predictably) tries to jump from a helicopter
- TOTWTYTR highlights the fact that while EMS is in fact a service, it is NOT a *wink* full *wink* service industry and patients need to respect their providers
Have a safe week and blog those saves!
