Dancing with the Stars – I don’t get it

Street Talk Dancing with the Stars – I don’t get it

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?
