Emmitt Smith doesn’t pan on slowing down anytime soon despite his retirement to Football. He talks with ESPN Playbook of the business opportunities he’s been offered and how he’s been staying in shape. Emmitt also answered a question about his new gig on Dancing With The Stars and how thrilled he is to be doing the show. Below is more. For the full interview, be sure to see the ESPN link.
Tell me about joining “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars.” Seems like some stiff competition.
“It is like a family reunion. I’m a little nervous about it. Look at the names on the list. You see a bunch of great performers, some in the entertainment world and some in the sports world. I said, ‘Emmitt, you have your work cut out! Did I make the right decision. Lord have mercy!’ At the end of the day, I truly feel like I’m part of this big family. It’s a great show. People of all generations have a chance to watch and get behind a contestant. I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
Go Emmitt! I love this guy (this is who my Hubby will be rooting for being he’s a football fan). I bet Emmitt will be fierce on the show again. Check out this tweet Emmitt posted a few days ago. I felt little stars when he posted it…
The life you lead is determined by how well you prepare yourself for the opportunities that come your way. #DWTS
