Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown gave a unique answer to the biggest obstacle in practicing for his Dancing with the Stars performance this week.
Remember the song “Too Close” by Next, perhaps the only top 40 hit in pop music history about ill-timed blood flow to a certain part of the male anatomy? According to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, the problem is real, especially when you’re rehearsing for Dancing with the Stars with a super fit pro dancer like Sharna Burgess as your partner.
Asked what was the biggest obstacle he faced while learning the Rumba for his second dance of the season, Brown was pretty blunt (via Sporting News):
To be fair, host Erin Andrews sort of set Brown up for that response by mentioning all the “rubbing and touching” he had to absorb during the week. Ahem.
Brown and Burgess have something more wholesome planned for an upcoming performance, when Antonio Brown Jr. will join his superstar dad on the Dancing with the Stars floor. The theme for the next week is “Most Memorable Year,” and the birth of a son would definitely qualify on that score.
Meanwhile, between Brown’s humor and Von Miller’s flatulence, this is shaping up to be a pretty memorable season of Dancing with the Stars before we even talk about the dancing.
