“Dancing with the Stars:” Donald Driver pulls an upset

Poor Maria Menounos.

She and her “Dancing with the Stars” partner Derek Hough were the favorites to move on, but in dancing, as in football, upsets and miracle finishes happen. Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd bumped Menounos and Hough from the show Tuesday night.

Driver, for now a Green Bay Packers wide receiver, and his partner advance to the season finale next week, when Driver will try to join Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward as NFL players who’ve hoisted the moderately coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

Competing on “DWTS” means that Driver is likely to miss the Packers’ first organized team activity next Monday and his absence isn’t likely to help him keep a tenuous grasp on his job. But that’ll be a matter for next week.
