Dancing With the Stars likes football players. Hines Ward and Emmit Smith won the competition in the past, and Tuesday night Donald Driver joined them, defeating Katherine Jenkins and William Levy to claim the Mirror Ball trophy. There’s a trivia question for you: Name the three men who have won both the Lombardi and the Mirror Ball. Driver now gets to claim that distinction alongside Ward and Smith. But Ward is still the only one of the three to survive a terrorist attack by Bane. That’s way more awesome than winning a dance show.
All kidding aside, it’s a great accomplishment for Driver. It takes nerve for a man to go out there on national TV and shake his butt in those costumes. Gotta be pretty secure in yourself. And to defeat an opera singer and a telenovela actor in direct competition? I don’t know what to say. That’s just impressive as heck. Good for you Donald and I hope you get your contract worked out with the Packers.
