The newest season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” airs tonight (Monday), and one of the participants is Sounders FC part owner Drew Carey.
He is partnered with professional Cheryl Burke and the show starts at 8 p.m.
I jokingly asked coach Sigi Schmid after practice if he had any predictions going into the season.
“Tonight’s his first dance? He’s been practicing for a while?” Schmid said. “It depends on who his partner is. I think if he’s got a good partner and a good teacher, I think Drew can follow directions very well.”
Believe it or not, there is some Sounders precedent for reality shows. Former goalkeeper Andrew Weber, with his twin brother, Elliot, was eliminated in the third episode of CBS’s “The Amazing Race” a couple years ago.
What do you think?
Will you be watching? And does Carey last longer than Weber?
