Warren Sapp To Do Dancing With The Stars

Tune in every week to see Warren Sapp boogie with Cloris Leachman, Lance Bass and Kim Kardashian! This may require weekly viewing.

This reminds me of the NFL Network's "Big Man Dance Contest" commercials from a couple years back. Grant Wistrom in a disco suit. Argh!

Cloris Leachman? Was Bea Arthur unavailable?

Kim Kardashian? She's already irrelevant?

God I hope they don't pair him with Julianne Hough or Cheryl Burke...

I've never watched Dancing With the Stars. That will change. Sapp did do a nice little Beyonce-esque dance after catching a pass as an eligible TE in his last season as a Buc. Hey, maybe if he wins he'll spike Julianne Hough during his celebration dance.

Ms. Leachman just turned up on Comedy Central's roast of Bob Sagat. What she had to do with Sagat, we'll never know (and perhaps its better that way).

I guess Ms. Leachman really needs the money.

I wonder if Cloris Leachman will perform 'Putting on the Ritz'?

Oh good. Now it's only 1 step to "Dancing with the Stars featuring Casey Hampton, Ted Washington, and Andy Reid"

I considered myself a fan of Warren Sapp - going all the way back to his days at Miami. However, I will not be watching.

I have an idea for the producers: While Sapp dances, have a surprise guest appearance by Chad Clifton. Clifton could come out of the audience to give a cheap shot to an unsuspecting Sapp. That would be sweet.

#8 - Great idea! And former contestant Jerry Rice can come come back and facemask him!

This was supposed to be Brett Favre's spot.

I'm sending you the bill for my soda-ruined keyboard... you made this vaguely related football thread worth peaking in...
