Terrell Owens: Not dancing with the stars

Terrell Owens says that he was asked to compete on Dancing With the Stars, the highly-rated ABC reality show that features celebrities, athletes, and other people of marginal public interest ballroom dancing.

One commentator noted that, given Owens' well-known shyness, he would doubtless have encountered significant difficulties in attempting to perform.

Seriously-ish, though... Owens on DWTS wouldn't have been an ideal fit - I'm thinking American Gladiators or Celebrity Boxing would be more fitting for his stature and physical presence. Owens is absurdly muscular - he makes Jason Taylor look normal - and would have run into troubles maneuvering a (presumably much) smaller partner around a dancefloor.
