The entertainment world was buzzing recently after the latest Dancing with the Stars list was announced – a list including sideline ESPN beauty Erin Andrews and boisterous, outgoing Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco.
In the spirit of this announcement, The Wife Hates Sports decided (OK, well… I did) to piece together a list featuring some of the best (and funniest) dances in recent sports and entertainment history.
There are certainly plenty to choose from – so we’ve pieced together a ‘Sexy Seven’ list of options – and ranked them.
Chime in if you feel there are others that we have forgotten.
