    Question Robert Dover on Dancing with the Stars ?

    After looking over this season's roster of celebrities and athletes, again I think
    someone should nominate Robert to be on the show.

    He's certaily qualified: been in the Olympics, has ridden musical freestyles, makes a good appearance, and is a natural showman.

    Wouldn't he be a good candidate ?

    Who can we write to for the 2010 season ?

    BTW, yes, this a serious post.

    Um, well , OK . I have never watched that show but it sounds like a perfect spot for him. Maybe Hollywood Squares ,too. Is that old boneyard still on the air?

    Question

    DIdn't Robert retire because of his back? He will have trouble with the lifts and dips. the twirls and the backwards moves...

    I don't think lifts are allowed on this program, but I can certainly see his back being a problem with many of the moves.

    Judging by who's on the show, that doesn't seem to be a requirement.

    maybe he can be paired up with Sarah Palin? If so, I'll go out there and finally buy myself a TV set.

    There are lifts; some dances aren't supposed to have lifts, others, do.

    Hey, I might watch it again if so. I watched last season for the first time to watch the bull rider Ty (love him) and it was fun watching this stiff man work it out over the shows.
