It was announced yesterday that Hines Ward will be on the next season of “Dancing With The Stars,” which is a show that will never go away because it costs nothing to produce. The NFL’s numbell one smaltest leceivel is the latest in a string of current and former players to have competed, including Jason Taylor, Chad Ochocinco, Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith and Warren Sapp and Kurt Warner, among others. I hadn’t realized just how many players had taken part. But that also led to the realization that I also don’t give a shit about DWTS. It’s been a morning of discovery at my place.
Hines isn’t known for being all that agile, so the producers are likely hoping he’ll throw a crackback block at Chris Jericho, thus inciting a melee which will end with Bill Simmons shrieking in the audience for Ralph Macchio to sweep everyone’s leg.
As for the dancing, Hines will end up imitating all the moves that Ocho used when he appeared on the show.
