Is Dan Marino The Next Former NFLer To Go On Dancing With The Stars?

Thursday, August 07, 2008

There isn't official word of the Dancing With The "Stars" cast for next season, but a few sites are claiming to have inside info. On the list are such "celebrities" as Kim Kardashian, Toni Braxton, Lance Bass, Florence Henderson and one Daniel Constantine Marino, Jr. From In Touch via The Palm Beach Post....

What do a sultry soul singer, a sexy reality starlet known for her bodacious butt, a rodeo cowboy, a Hall of Fame quarterback, an openly gay former boy-bander and the 74-year-old “Mrs. Brady” have in common? As In Touch can exclusively reveal, they’ll all be getting their groove on during the seventh season of Dancing With the Stars! “Toni Braxton, Kim Kardashian, Jewel’s boyfriend Ty Murray, Dan Marino, Lance Bass and Florence Henderson will all be competing,” an insider tells In Touch. “The cast is eclectic and diverse: We’ve got young, old, gay, straight, dance professionals and people who’ve never danced before.
The official reveal isn't happening until August 25th on Good Morning America, but if the reputable In Touch magazine says it's true...then I believe it. A former athlete seems to win the thing every year, so he's got a chance, and with the ratings the show gets it's really just free press for CBS.

Update: Now there's word that he isn't going to be on the show....

It really irks me that Ty Murray gets listed as "Jewel's boyfriend" as if he's some sort of Federline-like character who never accomplished anything on his own except hook up with the right famous chick at the right time.

He's more accomplished than she is.

An ex-athlete does not always win this. Look at the athlete and their sport (or position). Emmit was a fluke because he never should have won. Last year was a figure skater! What did she do athletically that was different from dancing? Oh she jumped and did it all on skates. Skaters have an edge due to foot work. Marino will look more like Rice out there than like Taylor. When the official cast gets announced I'll handicap it for you.

Note: Half the female celebs and 3/4 of the professional female dancers are hotter than the infamous EA. Just saying.

2nd Note: This is an athletic competion. Watch Taylor this year, I promise he'll be a step quicker due to his off-season workout (DWTS!) and due to the footwork involved with that workout. Parcells is a fool for dumping him.

Please, don't.

"I promise he'll be a step quicker due to his off-season workout (DWTS!) and due to the footwork involved with that workout."

Then Shaun Rogers should have tried out for that show.
