Dancing With The Stars 2011: Hines Ward's Dance Scouting Report, Based On YouTube

I know of at least one sports website so bored during football offseason it's merrily writing about Hines Ward being a part of the new season of Dancing With The Stars. But what are Ward's odds of bringing dancing glory home to Atlanta on the ABC show? This is so important! Here are videos of him dancing! Drop everything you're doing!

I'm pretty sure there's a video out there somewhere of Ward mocking the end zone celebrations of Terrell Owens and Ray Lewis, but I can't find them. God help us all.

In this one, the Georgia Bulldogs legend mocks Chad Ochocinco's running man. The announcer calls it Chad Johnson's riverdance -- that's because Chad Ochocinco used to be Chad Johnson, and Ward does a really terrible job at riverdancing:

Here he is doing the John Wall dance, a much simpler move and one that we can hope he gets the chance to unveil during DWTS:

Ward also nails a tandem routine with Nate Washington to T.I.'s "Live Your Life":

Then there's this kind of dancing, which happens after a team wins a Super Bowl:

I'm sorry you had to sit through that. Hope against an NFL lockout, or you'll be reading stuff like this every single day.
