Antonio Brown begins his quest for the Mirror Ball Trophy tonight on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. He’s hoping to foxtrot in the footsteps of another great Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, Hines Ward, who won the show back in 2011. AB will face a little tougher competition as this year will also feature former QB Doug Flutie and this year’s Super Bowl MVP linebacker Von Miller of the Broncos. Although, truthfully, I’m more interested in seeing Stephanie Tanner from Full House who, um, really grew up.
Anyway, each “celebrity” is partnered with a professional dancer. The winner is determined half by judges’ scores and half by viewer voting which means it’s up to Steeler Nation to represent. When Hines was on, I’d dvr it and just fast forward to his parts. It’s pretty cheesy but the lady dancers wear skimpy outfits and have amazing bodies so there’s that. Plus the Black and Gold could always use a second Mirror Ball to go along with the six Lombardi’s.
It’s a long way from training camp.
