Hines Ward Talks About Doing The Cha-Cha

PITTSBURGH (SportsRadio 93-7 The FAN) — Hines Ward joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on SportsRadio 93-7 The FAN to talk about his first episode of Dancing with the Stars and how nervous he was.  Hines admitted that when it was time for his first dance, he got a hot flash and thought he was going to pass out.

Even though the next football season is in jeopardy right now, Hines says Dancing with the Stars is a great workout because he’s working five hours a day, six days a week and all the moving around is great rehabilitation for his knee.

Hines has always been known for using the chip on his shoulder to motivate him throughout his football career, and admits that he has found a way to translate that to Dancing with the Stars.

After the first episode of the show, Hines said he had tons of messages from friends including James Harrison who warned him that if he doesn’t come back the winner, he better not talk to him again.

    I wish Hines and the rest of the steelers would just go away until the start of the next season. Why do we have to have the steelers shoved in our faces 365 days of the year.


      Because they are the best and we can have them in our faces 366 days a year too. GO STEELERS, YEA STEELERS, WE LOVE YOU STEELERS.

    I wish Hines, could use some of his super-powers to aid the earthquake victims,the situation in Japan, needs a Steeler angle.

  9. Bill Stevens says:

    Why would you idiots post this useless portion of the show when Ward was ripping the NFL and the lockout? You’re more concerned with his Dancing with the Stars than him playing football? No wonder you lost the SB

    1. tina says:
