And in the news I never thought I’d see…
Donald Driver has agreed to join the cast of the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars, set to air on ABC beginning on March 19.
Huh? Donald Driver-the dancer?
I guess I never envisioned Driver as someone who would “go Hollywood” especially while he is still an active player. Granted his smile alone is worth showing on television repeatedly, and he most definitely has the personality to succeed in this venture. But he is also someone who has generally kept a low profile during his time in Green Bay. And now he is going to be broadcast across the globe, dancing. That is the part I am struggling with.
When news of this hit the Twitterverse, a common thought as to why he was joining the cast was going on this show would help spread the word of The Donald Driver Foundation, which it undoubtedly will. Another thought is that as he enters the twilight of his career, he needed to start looking for options for the next phase of his life, the after football portion of his life. Both of these are viable explanations as to why he would join the cast. And neither help answer the simple question of “Why?” to this Packer fan/hack blogger.
Does this mean I won’t watch Dancing With The Stars now that Driver will be on the show? Certainly not. I now have a reason TO watch it. Will I continue to question why he joined the cast for the forseeable future? Absolutely. Because I just don’t get it.
Now this Donald Driver dance I could watch over and over
