Steelers WR Hines Ward made his dancing debut last night on ABC’s season premiere of Dancing With The Stars. Ward and his partner Kym Johnson did the Cha Cha dance. While their practice looked a little rough, Ward did a good job when the lights came on. The Ravens fan in me wanted him to fall flat, but I had to remind myself that football season was over and I gave him props on his hard work paying off (minus that outfit. Memo to Hines: No more suspenders, please!).
Ward had the support of his organization there as well. Former Steelers greats Franco Harris, Jerome Bettis and Mel Blount came for support, as well as his mom. I think it’s safe to say that Ward will be back on the show next week.
Also on the show are talk show host Wendy Williams, former WWE wrestler Chris Jericho and former No Limit artist Romeo, among others.
