What Sucks…Dancing With The Stars Except When...
…it comes to booking former professional athletes.
Yes, they are a true cheese-dick TV show with the worst in C-List celebs. The guy who played Elaine’s boss on Seinfeld. Stacy Keibler who just got a gig on "What About Brian", and Joseph Lawrence to name a few. But the guy (or girl) who books the former professional athletes needs to get a promotion. That person delivers nothing but absolute, living legend Hall of Famers.
Year one- Evander Holyfield. Okay, I’ll give you this one. Yes he was a great boxer, and a world champion, but maybe his booking was a fluke. Sure, okay- still he is a boxing legend for defeating Mike Tyson twice and his battles with Riddick Bowe.
Year two- Jerry Rice. Yes perhaps the best Wide Receiver of all time. Hall of Famer, no doubt.
Year three: Emmit Smith- who won the freaking thing just like he won 3 freaking Super Bowl rings and just like he is the all-time rushing yards leader. (Needed more carries and more years than Walter Payton- just saying.)
Now, as we enter year four- we have Clyde “The Glide” Drexler. A World Champion and certain Hall of Fame guard for the Portland Trailblazers and Houston Rockets. He was on the original Dream Team and is one of the 50 Greatest players in the NBA.
I’m not saying the guy (or girl) who books the athletes on Dancing With the Stars should book the whole show, but if they did, you might see some actual dancing, with some actual stars.
But no, seriously it’s okay. Good luck Joey Fatone and Billy Ray Cyrus.
