Is "Dougie" -- aka John Wall Dance -- worst ever?

Mon, Nov 15

It's the dance sensation that's sweeping the nation.

Do the Dougie.

Washington Wizards rookie guard John Wall sparked the revived interest by doing his version of the Dougie, aka the John Wall Dance -- which reminds me of the arm movements you would make if you were operating a sock puppet. Of course, there's no sock puppet.

And you know us. Mr. Wall's gyrations are all the excuse we need to ask your help in creating yet another list: "Top Ten All-Time Best/Worst Sports Dances." We're saying "Best/Worst" because one man's great dance moves is another man's end zone nightmare.

Send your nominations -- including a brief description of why it's worthy -- to me at, along with your first name, initial of your last name and your location. You have until Wednesday noon to add to the list that will be presented here Thursday.

There seems to be a famous (infamous?) breakout move every decade or so. Surely many of you will nominate the Ickey Shuffle, created as an end zone celebratory move by Cincinnati Bengals running back Elbert "Ickey" Woods in 1989. Or the Dirty Bird, the 1998 flapping move created by Jamal Anderson of the Atlanta Falcons.

There's got to be much more.

In the meantime, you can see Wall doing his Dance via YouTube, where it has been watched by more than a million viewers. And there are seemingly countless imitators. It was seen last week on both Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football. There's a John Wall Dance Facebook page. It's as infectious as the flu.

Whatever. What we want from you, once again, are the Best/Worst dance moves in the history of sports. Send your picks -- with your brief description of what makes them stand out -- to Don't forget your first name, initial of your last name and your location. No need to send video of you dancing. They don't pay me enough to watch that.
