    Parker: Elway rules out busting a move on 'Dancing with Stars'

    April 14, 2007

    Hall-of-Famer John Elway used fancy footwork on the field to bring the Broncos two Super Bowl titles.
    But when it comes to being footloose on the dance floor in front of a national audience, Elway took a pass. The retired QB said no thanks when the hit series Dancing With The Stars called and asked him to join the team.

    "I turned them down," Elway told me Friday at his namesake restaurant. "I thought about it, but in the end . . . "

    "No upside?" I said.

    "Yeah, no upside," he said.

    "Have you got the moves?" I teased.

    "I guess I would have found out," he said. "I just didn't want everyone to find out at the same time."

    Even though fellow NFL alums Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice had previously taken the dance floor on the ABC series (Smith and his partner won last season), Elway just couldn't go there.

    He did, however, compete in the reality show Fast Cars and Superstars - The Gillette Young Guns Celebrity Race and finished in the top three. The ABC series, which will air in seven episodes this summer, pairs 12 celebrity drivers with six stock-car racers to "learn what it takes to win on the race track."

      Oh no - it was brought to my attention by my Mom that it was in her column about John, so I found the article on line.

          I think it's disturbing that Dancing with the Stars is even a successful tv show.

          What the hell is wrong with America?

                Not anymore! I did when she first started, but quickly realized I didnt care where the rich eat, or what Holly Klyberg was doing this Sunday night.

                I guess every paper needs it's own version of the Enquirer though......

                      Good, I hate that show
                      Ask me about My Jesus and how to have a relationship with Him.

                        I've never seen the show before but I think that would have been stupid.

                        If Shannon Sharpe did it though, I think it could have been kind of funny.

                          Good call John - nothing personal but I dont see him having dancing feet - esp now - maybe 20+ years ago - but i cant picture John with all that much rhythm - you know what they say

                          White Boys Cant Dance - wait - no - thats what I say
