So, we’ve been posting on the rumor of Pittsburgh Steeler Antonio Brown for several weeks now and John was interviewed by the Post Gazette with the probability. Well, it’s true as you know from the couples post. Antonio is dancing with Sharna Burgess. Wiki has a great bio on him. Below is a cool video on his life and why he is happy and thankful. I love that million dollar smile. Bring on the glitter, Antonio. We’re ready. For all the latest couples spoilers, see this post.

John Of Pure DWTS Talks On The Odds Of Pittsburgh Steeler’s Antonio Brown Joining Dancing With The Stars
This morning, John talked with the Post Gazette about the rumor and odds of Pittsburgh Steeler’s Antonio Brown joining Dancing With The Stars. Read on…
John Lynn founded the PureDWTS.com site in Season 5 of the show. He said a combination of factors suggests the odds of Mr. Brown’s participation are at “80 percent.”
Pro athletes and TV celebs meet all the time at events and end up following each other on social media. “Saying ‘I’m going to follow “Dancing With the Stars” ’ is not the kind of thing that casually happens after a party or whatever. The two in combination seems to indicated it’s pretty likely he’s going to be on the show,” Mr. Lynn said.
“Of course, negotiations can always break down, and that’s where you have to be careful.”
Mr. Brown’s agent has not yet responded to the speculation.
Jacoby Jones placed third on “DWTS” as a Baltimore Ravens wide receiver awhile back; he recently was released by the Steelers. Football players generally do better than other athletes for a number of reasons, Mr. Lynn said. If they are likable (“charisma and personality, and Antonio Brown has that in spades,” he added), dance well (check out the AB moves on YouTube) and bring a solid fan base (hello, Steeler Nation), they are well on their way.
Generally, the celebrities meet their partners in the weeks leading up to the cast announcement. The first “Dancing With the Stars” episode is March 21. There always are leaks — “That’s our job,” Mr. Lynn said — so it’s possible to know who’s in the cast before then.
ETA – I take this as confirmation, personally. 😀 ~Heidi

ETA2: Thanks to CM for the heads-up on this, as I am Snapchat-illiterate 😛 Guess Antonio has thrown subtlety out the window completely – the jacket is kind of a dead-giveaway, as are the plastic containers in the background that say “Keo” & “Mark”…but who the hell is Dennis?????? And who is Shannon????? 😯 -Court-
Full credit to Corinne Mahaney and DWTSGossip for ferreting out this little tidbit!! Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers just started following Sharna Burgess and DWTS’ official twitter accounts. It happens every season. 😀
IF this is true, and he is partnered with Sharna, she has another legit shot at the MBT. She could take it home, for sure. That is, if he is even half the dancer with the charm of Hines Ward or Donald Driver.
Pictured above is another new campaign ad released for the women’s 2012 NFL “It’s My Team” Campaign!! Dancing With The Stars pros Peta Murgatroyd and Kym Johnson are adorable as always. You can read all about why the NFL decided to get more “stylish” with their women’s apparel line at the New York Times. For more fun images of Peta and Kym, be sure you see our previous posting here. Courtney found and scanned us an amazing large high quality take. Be sure to check it out. 😉
As we posted earlier in the summer, Peta Murgatroyd and Kym Johnson are part of the new 2012 “It’s My Team” NFL Campaign for the National Football League. The new campaign was shot by Daniel Jackson. You can read more on the debut and Kym showing off her Pittsburg Steeler spirit at In Touch Weekly. Doesn’t she look fabulous? You can buy the new NFL “It’s my Team” Fan Gear at Kohl’s here.
UPDATE: Check out the completed ad for the “It’s My Team” campaign, featuring both Kym & Peta. Seriously, ladies, can you please stop being so damn gorgeous??? 🙂 -Court-
Pictured above is the gorgeous Peta Murgatroyd. The Dancing With The Stars pro along with Kym Johnson and other notable women like DJ Kiss, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and Olympic swimmer Summer Sanders recently shot a new spread called “It’s My Team” for the National Football League. You can read all about it and see another picture of Peta at WWD.com. The new campaign was shot by Daniel Jackson at Pier 59 Studios. It will be available in fashion and lifestyle magazines in August.
ADDING: Abd below is a take of Kym behind the scenes thanks to @DWTSGossip for the find. Gorgeous!
Who would ever think there would come a day in time when we’d see NFL players dancing the Cha Cha in their locker rooms? That’s what went down this past week when Hines Ward taught the Cha Cha to fellow Pittsburgh Steelers team mates Troy Polamalu and Brett Keisel. You’ll have to see it to believe it. 😯
LOL! Hilarious! Special thanks to @@ryannjansen at twitter for letting us know on this news!!
