Pittsburgh Steelers Rashard Mendenhall A "Dancing Machine"?
Here's a quick post to lighten up your Tuesday morning (or afternoon for you east coasters). A few weeks ago there was a feature on espn about Steelers starting RB Rashard Mendenhall taking dance lessons at the Bella School of Dance in Wexford back when a hit from Ray Lewis ended his rookie season. Mendenhall has said that the dancing has helped his balance and conditioning and he even participated in a large performance in front of 1,000 people.
Imagine seeing a 220+ pound NFL running back dancing on stage to pop music. And he's dead serious. Here's video evidence of Mendenhall's 'moves'...
You can't make this type of stuff up, people.
Maybe this explains Mendenhall's ability to stay on his toes after contact. So far this season Mendenhall is fifth in the AFC in rushing yards so maybe more running backs should look into adding "Dance Dance Revolution" to their off season workouts? Whatever works, right?
