    Sigh. As often happens, the ever faithful (to her employers) Edyta has gotten screwed over.

    I know there's a general belief that the athletes always do well as dancers, but I just don't see this happening with L.T. I'd love to be proven wrong, for Edyta's sake, but I don't think I will be.

    She of the fake orange tan, but lovely smile and rockin' bod, will be reduced again this year to bowing out early and then dancing in the occasional Results Show number and on the eventual tour.

    Not so fast there, Krom! Last season I totally dismissed Warren Sapp (and wondered who Kym pissed off) when the casting announcements came out. How wrong was I?!? LT could be a big surprise, and I'm hoping he is. I would hate to see Edyta of the rockin' bod eliminated early.

    I would hate to see Edyta leave early again, so I'm hoping that LT brings it. I also expected Warren Sapp to be an early out, or at least middle of the pack, but what a surprise he turned out to be. I don't know if LT will go along with the NFL streak of winning or finishing as runner up, but hopefully he's good for awhile. I don't want Edyta to go so soon

    I truly hope Lawrence can get Edyta as far as Jason did and Warren did with Kym.

    Has a football player ever not landed in the top 2 or 3?

    Edyta was a runner up two seasons ago with Jason Taylor, an NFL player. They lost to Kristi Yamaguchi in the finals, but made a very good showing. So here we have Edyta with another football player named Taylor. I think they will do very well. I see them as contenders for the title.

    Cheryl won the competition in season three with Emmitt Smith.

    Then there was Jerry Rice, who finished second in season 2 (and no, I'm still not over him beating out Stacy Keibler). Anyway, Warren was a pleasant surprise. From all I heard about his attitude on/off the field next to his size all I could think of was pro Kym. Two seasons in a row she'll be out early. Hopefully Lawrence pulls the same stuff he does, but ends up winning vs finishing second.

    I hope he is good -- I'd love to see Edyta go all the way this time.
