So, as Lynn Hoppes notes over at ESPN Playbook, "Dancing with the Stars" moves to into its semifinal round Monday night on ABC. That means Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver is one of four contestants vying for the title, which means it's time to start paying attention to "DWTS" as far as I'm concerned.
If I can't wrest control of the remote Monday night, I'll do so ASAP and follow up at some point Tuesday. Driver is competing against opera singer Katherine Jenkins, actor William Levy and TV host Maria Menounos. (My extensive research on Levy reveals he is more frequently referred to as a "Latin heartthrob" but I just have no idea what that means.)
It sounds as if the Packers will be well-represented in the audience Monday night. According to Driver's verified Twitter feed, those scheduled to attend include coach Mike McCarthy, quarterback Aaron Rodgers, linebacker Clay Matthews, receivers coach Edgar Bennett and Rob Davis, the Packers' director of player development. Hopefully Rodgers can break away from his intensive training for the evening.
