In what could turn out to be simply the Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame quarterback cracking wise, TMZ has video of Troy Aikman stating that he is set to follow in the sashaying footsteps of his former teammate, Emmitt Smith, and will be one of the contestants on an upcoming season of ABC’s bizarrely-popular series, Dancing With The Stars.
The reason behind why Aikman might just be joking around – or perhaps just confused due to the violent brain-scrambling hits he suffered during his NFL career is that DWTS usually likes to keep the future contestants tightly under wraps until they are ready to make the grand announcement on a prime time special. Further, Aikman could also just be busting the chops of his former coach Jimmy Johnson’s foray into reality television land, as the hair-helmeted FOX analyst is slated to compete on Survivor: Nicaragua over on CBS.
Whether it is some sort of joke or Aikman is being dead serious, I am certain that when Joe Buck, his partner in the broadcasting booth for the NFL on FOX, sees the video, he’s going to be fit to be tied. Not that he is envious of Aikman because he wants to be on DWTS , instead, he would just like to know who in the hell that gigolo is at Aikman’s side – Buck is sick and tired of Troy’s free-wheeling, man-whorish behavior. Such a jealous little bitch, that Buck.
