Back to the point about football -- I too found it strange that these HUGE men like Sapp, Emmit Smith and Jerry Rice are so relatively light on their feet. Not being a football fan, I asked my husband who wasn't surprised at all. He noted that football players spend an enormous amount of time on their footwork, learning to move laterally, around players and the like. Think of the classic pictures of teams training where they jump through rows of tires. He said given that these three players are among the best players of all time, he thought it was to be expected that they could move around a dancefloor.

It's not their coordination that surprises me, given that pro sports requires excellent neuro-muscular reactions, speed, balance, etc. What surprises me is their ability to project personality.

I do have to admit, though, that just from a visual standpoint, these big players' lightfootedness is surprising time after time.

The Final Four entering this week's round:

Lance, Brooke, Cody, Warren

If pressed, I would predict Brooke and Warren for the Final Two w/ Warren taking home the coveted disco ball. But you never know what's really going on with fanbases until Tom Bergeron announces who's staying and who's going.

I agree w/ perky -- Kym definitely knows she has a strong contender for the win on her hands. (Derek does too.)

The wild card in all this is Julianne -- she has won twice (w/ Apolo and Helio) and has a following in her own right.
