Troy Aikman says he'll join Dancing with the Stars

Next Saturday, the last of the Triplets will enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as Emmitt Smith gives Jimmy Kimmel some monologue fodder in Canton. 

Then, the last of the Triplets will join the cast of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.  Quarterback Troy Aikman told his on-air partner’s favorite website that he’ll take part in the celebrity dancing competition “next year.”

Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin previously have appeared on the show, which typically features at least one current or former NFL player.

Other past players include Jerry Rice (who’ll also enter the Hall of Fame next Saturday), Jets defensive end Jason Taylor, eventual Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp, and Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco.

Aikman currently serves as the top game analyst on FOX, making him the third FOX regular in two days to accept a moonlighting assignment with another network.

UPDATE:  Aikman now claims that he was joking.  We’re still waiting for the punchline.

    Doubt he’ll do very well, he’s not as athletic as Emmitt or Rice and he’s relatively huge compared to his potential partners. Size difference will make it more difficult for him to look good.

    Based on the above – is he trying out for a dance show or a gay porn revue?

    I’m more excited about Jimmy Johnson being on Survivor Nicaragua.

    Emmitt sucked on DWTS. I hope Aikman is better. Jason Taylor was great and Ochocinco was fun.

    Skip Bayless ponders: “I wonder which of the guys he’ll be paired up with.”

    Emmitt couldn’t have sucked too bad since he won. I think you are thinking about Michael Irving because he definitely struggled with it.

    Barney Frank is interested in being his dancing partner, among other things.

    Apparently you don’t know jack about competitive ballroom dancing. Dancers try to have a partner the same height because a disparity in height makes it more difficult to perform lifts and turns.
    Not sure why you seem to think dancing is somehow reflective of a lack of testosterone. I think you may be manifesting an issue.

    What’s with the Jeff Garcia gay references? I’ve seen them posted before but to my limited knowledge the guy is married to a former Playmate of the year and has kids with her. What am I missing?

    LORD HELP US! IT’S THE SEVENTH SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE! RUN FOR COVER!!!

    It’s only a matter of time before Aikman comes out of the closet…

    I’d say he knows about as much about competitive ballroom dancing as any other straight guy.
    The only ballroom Troy Aikman needs to worry about is between his lower lip and his teeth.

    “…eventual Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp”……. BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP Back that bus up. I don’t think so.

    Greatest quote ever by Jerry Glanville
    “Look at that mouth on Aikman, it should have a hook in it”
