Hello, my name is Eric......

.....and I like Dancing with the Stars. There....I said it. Admitting it is the hardest part, right?

Aimee started watching the show and I joined her on the couch to watch as well. We missed season one but have seen some great dancing and entertainment since.

Last night was the Tour show. Aimee received two tickets for last nights tour show here in Cleveland. I will admit that it was a very good show. The music and choreography were awesome. The celebrity dancers were Lance Bass, Marlee Matlin, Maurice Green and Toni Braxton. Each were entertaining and Braxton also sang two songs.

The professional dancers are amazing and in great shape. The show consisted of two 45 minute "acts" and the dancing was non-stop. These athletes are very fit and strong. You can see the muscles cut into the legs and abs of each person. At the end of each dance set they aren't even breathing hard either. I wonder what their VO2 max is?

I found myself focusing on several pros in particular. Maxim Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough, Edyta Sliwinska, Cheryl Burke, and Lacy Schwimmer. The style and grace as they moved around the stage was amazing.

The song playing in my sidebar is Palladio. The Tour band played a fierce techno version for a Paso Doble routine.

We enjoyed ourselves very much and can't wait for the next season.

I can appreciate how these dancers can get their Game On.

Well since it's confession time. Hi, my name is Scott and I like "So you think you can dance" and "Semi-homecooking with Sandra Lee".

It's all part of being a well rounded person.
