If you haven’t heard already, Packers WR Donald Driver has been participating in the ABC reality TV show “Dancing with the Stars” and has now advanced to the finals with partner Peta Murgatroyd.
It is now down to Donald and Peta, Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas, and William Levy and Cheryl Burke.
Although I do not personally watch the show, I hope Donald and Peta do well and win it all!
The only thing that I don’t like about it is the fact that next week the Packers will start practices and mini-camps. If Donald is still competing on the show, will this interfere with practice?
With his future in Green Bay in question to begin with, this just adds to the drama.
According to Jason Wilde, ESPNWisconsin Senior NFL writer,
“Donald Driver has reached the Dancing With the Stars finals – and will likely miss the Packers’ first OTA practice as a result. The veteran wide receiver was in jeopardy until the closing minutes of Tuesday night’s results show, but in the end, it was entertainment reporter Maria Menounos who was sent home. Driver, who is entering his 14th NFL season, will compete for the mirror ball trophy next Monday night. The Packers have the first of their 10 OTAs that morning in Green Bay.”
