Dancing with Donald: One more week
By Kevin Seifert
Just what you all wanted: NFC North blog readers will be treated to another week of "Dancing with the Stars" coverage.
(Don't like it? I'll be happy to bring back hourly Minnesota Vikings stadium updates.)
As you would most likely know by now if "DWTS" interests you, Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver has advanced to the finals of the ABC reality show. (I'm still a little confused how three celebrities remain in play after a four-person semifinal round, but maybe I'm overthinking it.)
After bidding farewell to the plucky Maria Menounos, Driver will compete against fellow celebrities William Levy and Katherine Jenkins next week for the "DWTS" title.
From a football standpoint, Driver's additional week on the show has probably delayed any resolution to his future with the Packers. Green Bay begins organized team activities next Monday, as Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com points out, but Driver will still be in competition at that point.
