WATCH and LOL: David Ross “Horrifies” Anthony Rizzo with His Latest ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Routine

Chicago Cubs News, Cubs Humor

He’s still going strong!

Former Chicago Cubs catcher and current team exec David Ross is still dancing away on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” offering up a Cubs-focused first appearance, an early-90’s move-buster, and now this ‘Magic Mike’-inspired oh-dear-god-he’s-taking-off-his-shirt …


I’ve gotta say up front that I could not have more respect for David Ross for having the balls – as Jake Arrieta put it after Ross’s first performance – to put himself out there and do these routines. Even for a former professional baseball player who is used to competing on a public stage, this cannot possibly be easy, purely from a confidence standpoint (to say nothing of actually learning and executing the dances).

All that said, I can’t say I entirely disagree with Anthony Rizzo’s reaction to the performance:


The judges were once again relatively impressed by Ross and his partner, Lindsay Arnold (though Ross did most of the work-work-work-work-work this week), and they’ll be back again next week.

Show it off, Grandpa! Oh, it’s a shirt:

God help me, I am into a dancing competition!
