Hines Ward wrapped up his Dancing With the Stars appearance on Tuesday night and came away as the king of celebrities-turned-dancers, winning the competition by edging out Kirstie Alley. I’ll repeat that one more time, just because I find it to be absolutely hilarious: Hines Ward, two-time Super Bowl Champion and Super Bowl MVP, beat Kirstie Alley in a competition. And people are thrilled.
That either points to the popularity of the show, the popularity of Hines Ward, or our desperate search for anything football-related to talk about. Or a combination of all three.
Either way, congratulations to Hines and his partner, Kym Johnson, who actually overcame an injury in practice a couple of weeks ago to help earn the win.
