Hines Ward wins DWTS!


Pittsburgh Steelers WR Hines Ward took home the Mirror-ball trophy, last night, for his Samba skills on Dancing With The Stars! He was honed the M-V-P of Season 12 by the judges. Hines Ward, 35, is only the second football player to take home the prestigous award; the first was Emmitt Smith in 2006. A little off the topic, but did you notice the girl in the background? She looks enamered with joy, and trying to get a quick dig in at the same time. Read the excerpt, courtesy espn, and watch the video below!

“You are the MVP of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ season 12,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba said after Ward and professional partner Kym Johnson finished their last dance. “You learned how to lead the dancing, not only in the dance, but you led your partner out of injury. You dance with heart and it shows.”

Ward said after the show that he owes the victory to his partner, hard work and the fans.

“The competition has been so close all year, we knew it was going to come down to voting,” he said, “so we want to thank our fans.”
