ABC will subject us to yet another season of "Dancing with the Stars," and as usual there are several athletes in the lineup of contestants.  Former NFL star/current lardass Warren Sapp will join Olympic gold medalists Maurice Green and Misty May-Treanor on ballroom dancing's most televised stage. 

A record 13 dancers will compete on the show. Included are the program's youngest dancer ever — 18-year-old Cody Linley of the popular Disney Channel show "Hannah Montana" — and its oldest, 82-year-old actress Cloris Leachman.

Others contestants include singers Lance Bass and Toni Braxton, Emmy-winning soap actress Susan Lucci, reality-show participant Kim Kardashian, television actor Ted McGinley, chef Rocco DiSpirito, television personality/model Brooke Burke and stand-up comedian Jeffrey Ross.

Wow, that's impressive.  Some of these people I've actually heard of before.  We're talking D-List, even C-list celebrities.  Why, in another three or four seasons, there might even be genuine stars on this show.
