The PVR/DVR and Timeshifting have to be the best technical inventions of our time. If I hadn’t had these in my television watching arsenal, it’s safe to say that I would have missed the greatest finale of Dancing with the Stars. WOW – what a showdown, or should I say Mambo Smack Down.

While in its 7th season, Dancing with the Stars still has star quality that piques your curiosity and grabs your attention, and that’s with two shows per week, and three in the beginning. A lot to take in but it’s worth it. With the accessible cast of stars I think it’s safe to say that a few more seasons will be in the works for ABC.

Where else can you get a boy band pop star, model/host and very large football hero willing to possibly put their reputations on the line to learn a few steps? The finalists this season were sensational and one was even touted as being as good as some of the professionals on  the show. Koodos to you Brooke Burke and her fancy foot work. She had men swooning at their televisions and woman wishing they had her grace. A glimps into her perceived ‘perfect star life’ has given all her viewers a chance to see her as a normal person and root for her to win.

March can’t come too soon for the next installment. Here’s hoping for the sake of the next line-up that the accidents, ambulance rides and hospital visits will be kept to a minimum. This season taught us that dancing just may be a sport as the saying goes, “It’s not a sport until someone gets hurt.”  I guess there’s a little something for everyone.
