Hines Ward has a new life motto

Hines Ward, Kym Johnson AP

We haven’t caught Hines Ward’s appearances on Dancing with the Stars because we still posses the will to live.  Steelers fans, however, are on board.

“We’re getting lots of e-mails and messages about how great he is doing, so there’s no question Steelers Nation is paying attention,” Steelers president Art Rooney II told Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  “It’s fun to watch. I haven’t watched that many dance shows, so it’s a little different for me.”

Translation: “I watched five minutes, and don’t want to sound like a jerk about it.  Aren’t the 70’s over?”

Ward says he’s getting almost unrivaled fan support and a number of his teammates came out to watch the show.  Linebackers James Farrior and James Harrison and tackle Max Starks will be in the audience Monday.

Ward is taking the competition very seriously.  He revealed to Brown a sock he was wearing that said simply: “Eat. Sleep. Dance.”

“That’s really all we have time for,” Ward said.

This is what you have reduced us to, NFL.  Hope you are happy.

    I keep waiting for T.O. to show up on Dancing With The Stars. Now THAT would be entertaining!

    This confirms what many suspected…….The entire Steeler nation has no life…….whatsoever

    Um, who is “Brown”?

    I hope he cheap shots one of his dancing opponents.

    I am die hard Steelers fan and enjoy watching Hines Ward play football. I have not watched the dancing show and do not plan on watching it. Though I do wish Hines Ward luck and hopes he does well.

    Eat, sleep and not show up in the Superbowl, that’s more like it.

    He’s actually pretty good, he’s top 3, really

  9. samoanjungle says: Apr 9, 2011 12:12 PM

    I hope he falls and breaks his smile

    Hines probably wore that sock in his crotch because he is a dickless pu$$y.

  11. bostonbias says: Apr 9, 2011 1:02 PM

    Jimmy…Do you watch football? 7 catches is not showing up?

    I think most of the people who say he cheaps shots have never played football in their lives.

    C’Mon, dancing show? I understand the hot women thing, but if it was me and I needed more hot women, I’d do porn…

  13. bostonbias says: Apr 9, 2011 1:08 PM

    Ward is 200 yards behind Irvin all time. Ward has 204 MORE catches. Ward has 18 more TD catches.

    Has more most season TDs and Receptions than Irvin. Ward has more post season catches than anyone in Post season history except for Jerry Rice.

    So Jimmy..I think you should try to use some facts. Maybe learn a lil about football and think before you post.

    Pittsburgh used to be the City that Built America… a steel town… tough as nails… blue collars and lunch pails.

    Now, prancing queens. Is this what has become of Steel City, USA?

    Sad. Very sad.

    Not a huge Steelers fan, but I love Hines Ward. Anybody that small who knocks so many people unconscious that a rule is made for him ON OFFENSE is ok in my book.

  16. hobartbaker says: Apr 9, 2011 2:12 PM

    Put some Ketchup on it.

    Hines is rockin’ it on DWTS!! He’s giving 100%, taking it seriously and kicking butt. For those of you that aren’t familar with professional dance – it’s quite a challenge to learn new routines in 5-6 days and excell at it! We’re loving Hines and he’s keeping the excitement and enthusiasm high in the Steeler Nation during this dismal lockout! Scanning over the “Hines & Kym” pages over at the DWTS site – it’s amazing how many NON STEELER FANS are loving him too! Seriously – Ravens, Cowboys, Browns, Patriots, et al have commented….They might not love (hate?) the Steelers – but they are lovin’ Hines on DWTS!

    ——
    He’s pretty notorious at taking cheap shots.

    That being said. I did the same thing, theres nothing better the knocking the F*** out of someone when they’re not keeping their head on a swivel.

    But call it what it is.

    @touchdownroddywhite …

    Exactly. People don’t like him because receivers aren’t supposed to hit back.

    @JimmySmith …

    Hines was one Steeler who actually did show up in the Super Bowl.

    @ArtModellsPimp …

    Be careful what you say. I can just see Ray doing the Paso Doble. Hey, if it’s manly enough for Chuck Liddell …

    @packerswambulance …

    Yes, but this is free and your wife probably already watches it.

    @laeaglefan …

    T.O. was in the audience for nearly all Ochocinco’s appearances … so it’s only a matter of time.

    I get it.

    PFT is just a bunch of rough tough hairy chested men that wouldn’t be caught dead watching a dance show because they are just so manly.

    A motto? Because of something printed on a sock?
    Does that mean you “motto” is “Fruit of the Loom” Gregg? :roll:

  22. sakatak says: Apr 9, 2011 4:00 PM

    As far as I am concerned Hines can win DWS, but I won’t watch until Big Ben and his fiancee show up to watch.

  23. Deb says: Apr 9, 2011 4:12 PM

    @realfann …

    Or … it’s just a bunch of 13-year-olds still afraid of being called sissies.

  24. nagaswan says: Apr 9, 2011 6:12 PM

    I love the idea of him doing some stupid cha cha or something then blowing up an LB.

  25. ultramanjones says: Apr 11, 2011 10:04 AM

    Bruce Lee was Cha Cha champion of Hong Kong. Any one that simply wont watch the show has a stick rammed up their butt. “Steeler Nation has no life”? You losers have no life because you actually believed the haters who raised you when they taught you their boring idea of what makes a man. I’m glad I don’t know you, ya life of the party sucking meatheads.

    Go Hines! You rock!
