As the awesome season of Dancing with the Stars comes to a close, I’ve followed a lot of it, and it was the most entertaining, by far. The finalists all deserved mirror ball trophies!
My family of cheesehead fans watched Triple D dance and bring that mirror ball trophy to title town Green Bay, Wisconsin — as urged by fellow Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews in one funny skit.
Observations great and small: I don’t know who dressed tennis hall of famer Martina Navratilova in that fishnet thrown over a sparkle bra and shag pants, but that was disrespectful. She deserved so much better.
Jaleel White showed us that “Family Matters” Steve Urkel (“Did I do that?”) really can dance with partner Kym Johnson. Legendary eight-time Grammy winner Gladys Knight is one awesome singer and dancer at age 68 with partner Tristan MacManus.
Congrats to Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd. Driver joins a series of NFL football players to win the trophy. Emmitt Smith won Season 3 and Hines Ward won Season 12. Several other NFL stars made it into the late rounds of DWTS.
