Donald Driver set for 'Dancing', football
By Lynn Hoppes
Donald Driver and partner Peta Murgatroyd will be dancing the Viennese Waltz Monday.
Only seven couples remain on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars", and Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver isn't taking anything for granted.
On Monday, Driver and partner Peta Murgatroyd will dance the Viennese Waltz and then take part in the Team Paso Doble competition.
Driver said, even though he has been near the top of each week's standings, he still wants Packers Nation to call in.
“You can still end up in the bottom two if you don’t have the fan votes so I definitely need Packer Nation to keep calling in!" Driver said. "Let’s bring the Mirrorball Trophy back to TitleTown!”
Speaking of titles, Driver is chomping at the bit to get back on the field, especially with the Packers falling apart in the playoffs last season.
"We still have a bitter taste in our mouth from last year," Driver said, "and the only way to get it out is to get back on that field and start preparing to win a championship.”
And what does dancing do for his football?
“My touchdown dances are going to be a lot better!” he said.
