What an exciting night last night was.

I have to admit that I am not much of a Dancing with the Stars fan.  Even with all of the excitement surrounding Donald Driver, it's been tough for me to think about actually sitting though two or three hours a week of DWTS. Last night, Michelle and Aimee and I turned it on about 9:30p, just as they were announcing which two pairs of dancers would survive to the final two.  A mini 'whoop, whoop' went up when Driver survived.

I was kind of doing some computer work and a little reading as the next 20 minutes ticked by. But I could feel the tension coming off Michelle and Aimee sitting next to me on the couch.  At 9:55, it was announcement time. I looked to my left to see both of my ladies sitting with fingers, legs, and arms crossed. As the winner was announced, Chelle and Aimee exploded.  I think the neighbors could hear Aimee.  It felt like almost the same excitement level as when the Pack won the Super Bowl.

Michelle has been quite impressed with the poise shown by Donald's wife Betina, as he spent the last couple of months with Peta Murgatoyd draped all over him. I got myself in a little bit of hot water when my wife commented on how the scantily clad Aussie was hanging all over #80, and my response was, "Oh, I didn't even notice Donald was out there."

Congratulations, Donald (and Peta)!
