The Super Bowl’s not for another week, the Olympics aren’t for another two, and I don’t care about the Pro Bowl. I think this calls for a post topic that’s completely silly and unrelated to anything, don’t you? Luckily I’ve been saving one up, ever since I saw this post on one of my favorite dance blogs. For those of you who don’t feel like following the link, all you really need to know is that the title is “I WANT CC SABATHIA TO BE ON DANCING WITH THE STARS.”
Um, you may need to stretch more than that to pull off a tango, CC.
There is usually at least one athlete contestant on DWTS every season, but none of them has been a professional baseball player. Ignoring the pragmatic concerns about whether the timing of the DWTS filming would conflict with baseball season (because: silly post), would CC be a good fit for the show?
Pros: Very first contestant from baseball, Yankees would probably encourage it if only to keep him in shape during off season.
Cons: Size (height, too, this is not a fat joke!) might make it difficult to find a compatible partner, might have a hard time getting votes if DWTS fans turn out to be anti-Yankee.
Follows in the Footsteps of: Warren Sapp, Evander Holyfield
But I didn’t stop there! If scheduling conflicts were not an issue, here are some other contestants I’d like to see on the dance floor.
