It's funny, Karalott, that I too have to keep a list of contestants next to my computer to avoid forgetting half of them.
But I remember some people even if they aren't the greatest dancers, and I'm excited when it's their turn and disappointed when they aren't that good.
I'm thinking now of Michael Irvin, who a buddy of mine close to the show told me is the friendliest of the bunch...an upbeat person, the one who is friends with everybody, and actually happy to be there. That guy smiles all the time.
He's probably the worst dancer, and will be going home soon - and that's fair and it's the nature of sports, but I think he'll be missed in the Red Room.
Can you imagine a final of Aaron, Mya and Joanna? It won't happen but they'd have to bring in a SWAT team to keep them apart, put canaries in their dressing rooms to detect poison gas, and have a priest on hand to administer Last Rites in case one went over the wall.
