He might not know his future NFL plans -- whether he’ll remain in Green Bay or otherwise -- but Packers receiver Donald Driver is sure of one thing: the man can flat-out dance.
That was proven Tuesday night when Driver won the popular vote on Dancing With the Stars, becoming the third NFL player after Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward to triumph in ABC’s reality show.
I’ve never watched a second of the show, so I couldn’t break down for you Driver’s performance. But here’s the L.A. Times over-the-top recap: “It was a fantastic end to a fantastic season. Len likened this “Battle for the Ball” to other epic battles throughout history: Gettysburg. Bunker Hill. The Alamo.”
Driver’s celebration, somehow, is just as over-the-top. But damn if he isn’t happy when his name is called as the winner. But who can blame him? First, the Super Bowl, and now this?
