It’s official. Former Rams, Giants, and Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner will become the latest former NFL player — and the first former quarterback — to trade in his steel-tipped cleats for tap-tipped dancing shoes.
Reports emerged earlier in the month that Warner will take a turn on Dancing with the Stars; ABC made the announcement on Tuesday.
Warner will join a cast that includes David Hasselhoff, former NBA player Rick Fox, Bristol Palin, the dude from Jersey Shore who calls himself “The Situation,” Florence Henderson of The Brady Bunch fame, and Jennifer Grey, who hasn’t done much of anything since starring more than 20 years ago in Dirty Dancing.
Though we don’t know what the rehearsal, training, and broadcast schedule is for the show, there could be a conflict between the time Warner must devote to DWTS and his preparation and appearances as a game analyst on FOX.
Either way, there’s now a zero-percent chance Warner will return to the NFL this year. As if there’s was anything more than a zero-percent chance that Warner would have returned.
And no matter how it all plays out, we’re hoping that Warner at some point will try to put Baby in a corner.
