Full Disclosure – I’ve been a huge sports fan all my life.
I would be watching a lot of sports and sporting events even if I didn’t work in the sports world. I started collecting sports memorabilia when I was in my teens and I am proud of my collection. I understand the mind of the sports fan.
At least…I thought I did.
Then Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones became a contestant on Dancing With the Stars.
I have not watched one second of the show and frankly don’t plan to. It seems a lot of Ravens fans have caught the “Dancing” bug though. I get the “he’s one of ours” theory to an extent but it’s DANCING.
Does everyone realize they’re watching a ballroom dancing show?
Maybe I’m wrong and a great deal of Baltimoreans are fans of the show anyway.
I guess I can respect that.
Hey, if that old Superstars show was still on where professional athletes competed in things like swimming, rowing, and weight lifting, I’d root for the Baltimore guys.
I just can’t translate that to dancing.
I was slightly amused today though when there was a panic on Twitter because Jacoby’s dance partner got hurt during rehearsals.
There was a chance she might not be able to dance!!!
I honestly don’t know if she was able to go or not but for all the Dancing fans in the area I hope she did.
Have you been watching just because a Raven is on it?
Do you watch anyway?
Or are you like me?
