Tony Kornheiser is everywhere these days, well, if we allow ourselves to define “everywhere” as photobombing Bill Simmons, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon at the Super Bowl coupled with a cameo during an episode of The Americans on Wednesday night. As The Washington Post, Kornheiser’s former employer notes, the PTI host pops up briefly watching for the Ray Mancini-Duk Koo Kim bout at a bar alongside series star Matt Rhys.

Let’s put on our thinking caps and mull this one over. The Americans is set in 1982 Washington. During that period Kornheiser worked as a writer for The Post. So, in theory, was he playing himself? A sportswriter watching a prize fight at a bar isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

Anyways, no spoilers, since our resident Americans expert (Jason Lisk) hasn’t watched last night’s episode yet.
