Is Jacoby Jones going to be on DWTS?
There’s no officials offer year, but the Super Bowl XLVII hero said he would love the opportunity to follow NFL stars like Emmett Smith, Hines Ward, and Jerry Rice in doing Dancing With The Stars.
After catching a long touchdown and running a kick back for a record 108 yards in the Super Bowl, Jones became a breakout star in the last week. He’s don interviews and appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
It was on the Jimmy Kimmel Live that Jacoby Jones shared his desire to be on DWTS.
Here’s a partial transcript, via Yahoo! Sports:
Kimmel: Would you consider being on Dancing With The Stars? As a representative of the ABC television network, I would like to offer you the chance to compete on Dancing With The Stars. What do you think about that?
Jones: Let me ask you this: Do polar bears poo on ice?
Kimmel: I’m relatively sure that they do, although I’ve not witnessed it …
Jones: I hope they don’t do it in water, that would be nasty!
Kimmel: So you would do that (go on DWTS)?”
Jones: Oh yes sir … I’ll get it done. I’ll get it done, baby.
Whether he lands on DWTS or not, Jacoby Jones’ performance has already become the stuff of legend in Baltimore. Not only did his big-game heroics help lead to the team to the title, it also earned $600,000 worth of free furniture for people in Baltimore, Larry Brown Sports noted.
A furniture store in Baltimore had promised that all purchases in the days leading up to the game would be free if Jones returned a kick for a touchdown. When he did, the store was able to give out $600,000 in merchandise, all for the cost of a $15,000 insurance policy.
