Michael Irvin to be on Dancing With the Stars
Wow! Can you believe it! The man who once said, “Tony Romo’s got some brotha in him,” is now going to show the world just how much rhythm brothas have.
Michael Irvin, former Dallas Cowboy and current Hall of Famer, will be taking his boisterous personality to the set of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. He will be following in a long line of successful NFL football players; a list that includes Jerry Rice, Warren Sapp and Emmitt Smith, who actually won Dancing with the Stars a couple of years ago.
If you’re asking me to predict whether or not Irvin will win, well, that’s a hard one to figure out. Afterall, Donnie Osmond is going to be on the show this fall, and I’m pretty sure he has done his share of dancing. However, Irvin is someone that has boasted about his style, his rhythm and his personality, and to bet against any and all of that carrying over into his dancing would almost seem foolish.
Besides, we all know what Dancing with the Stars is really about: hard work! Emmitt Smith can’t really dance—at least he couldn’t before the show. But he worked at it. He gave it his all. And at the end of the day, he was dancing away with the trophy. Warren Sapp, the man who notoriously disgusted all of America with his rendition of Beyonce’s Bootylicious dance, was a great performer on the show and went very far in the competition. So as long as Ivrin is motivated to do well on the show, he will go far, and he will probably win.
In case you didn’t know, Irvin was the hardest worker on those 90’s Cowboys teams. He was the first person to get to practice and the weight room, and he was the last person to leave. Where he was coming from and where he was going after he was done—well, that’s a story for another day. Also, at the World Wide Leader in Bristol, he had a huge reputation for getting in good workouts at the ESPN gym.
So I’m not going to be stupid. I’m not going to bet against a 3-time Super Bowl champion, who is known for his charisma and style as much as he is known for what he did on the field for so many years in Dallas. Besides, if you don’t think that Irvin is motivated by the fact that his long-time, no-rhythm having, stiff-back, teammate Emmitt Smith won the competition, then you’ve got another thought coming very soon.
