Steelers receiver Hines Ward won’t let a potential work stoppage ruin his offseason. He’s found a new way to make some quick money.
Ward will appear on the next season of Dancing with the Stars, according Chris Mortensen. It starts March 21.
The two-time Super Bowl champion will follow in a long line of professional football players that have done well on the show. (We’re too lazy to look up how well.)
Ward’s appearance will inevitably mean that people we respect will watch the show and update Ward’s progress via Twitter. A show built around unfunny semi-celebrities dancing around. And nothing else. It has all the drama of paint drying.
Some men will defend this mind-numbing behavior by citing how good looking the female dancers are. These men are either whipped or have just given up on life.
