Bigtime news on Jason Taylor (sort of)

In keeping with the cutting-edge sports journalism that this blog offers on a consistent basis, I am now going to break a national story BEFORE it is on national television.

Jason Taylor. Remember him?

Informed sources tell me that Taylor, whose career with the Dolphins is teetering on the decision to keep him or trade him, will make national news in the coming months as a new member of Dancing with the Stars on ABC.

I cannot believe I just wrote this.

But it is true and the announcement will be made on ABC before tonight's Dance War show is over at 10 p.m.

So what do you think? Does JT do the Soulja Boy? Does he mambo or samba? Does he breakdance? Or does the man of the long, lanky legs simply flop like Jerry Rice, Clyde Drexler, and Emmitt Smith did?

The new season of Dancing with the Stars starts March 17. Interesting offseason conditioning program.

Oh, and by the way, tune into the announcement to see if Taylor finally comments on brother-in-law and longtime teammate Zach Thomas being cut by the Dolphins -- something that happened, you know, last week.

You got to be kidding me. Dancing with the stars? I heard that he wants to go the showbiz route some day. Wasn't it just last year that there was a rumor about JT and his good buddy The Rock setting some kind of reality TV show around JT?

Oh, and by the way. 1st post.

I knew Hollywood wanted to go out to the Left Coast but not this. After what I've read about Zack will J.T. be in pantyhose ? Well I guess we know why the defense couldn't stop the run, you can't block a guy by bending over.Men should not dance,they just don't look right, it's not what were built for.

What is this that men do not dance? Do you not remember your countryman Fred Astaire. Beautiful dancer. One like me sees him dance and begins to wonder if Yankees could be highly cultured after all.

He'll most likely tear a bicep( or suffer a shoulder injury) in week one and be sidelined on and off for the rest of the competition.

Trade him. Trade him now before he becomes a total joke on national TV.

Your team is a 1-15 joke. And now your players are making a mockery of themselves. Haha.

Hey PatsFan did u say CHOKE or Joke? Another queston: What do you call 18-1?...LOSER! Your sorry choke artists are going to be forgotten just like our 1-15 they are not. They are going to be brought up every time New York is given Props for their "upset" and when they show one of the greatest plays ever by a QB and receiver. So you have the rest of your pathetic life to remember it. Enjoy.

hey Pats FAN

You should know about a team being a joke and making a mockery of themselves, after all the Patriots are the expert of doing that, as evidenced by their 17-14 loss in the Super Bowl to the Giants that had the whole country laughing their ass off at your team and they still are. How did that undefeated season work out for you guys? How's the perfection. Be careful, before I send the Giants offensive line and a bunch of New Yorkers over to make you Boston idiots curl up in the fetal position and cry like babies. I hear that Brady just sees a picture of the Giants offensive line and starts babbling like an imbecile. That's also what happens when Pats and Red Sox fans see New York sports fans they fold like a house of cards.

Armando, your "scoop" was on page 1D of today's USAToday. For the record, if you report something simultaneously as the McPaper, it doesn't qualfy as a "bigtime news."

Plane trip to Arizona $150.00. Watching the Patriots get their butts kicked in the superbowl $400.00. Seeing a Patriots fan talk smack about THEIR TEAM, THE BIGGEST CHOKERS IN NFL HISTORY ,,,,,PRICELESS!

Ed, obviously you miss the sarcasm in Armando's post. He's just having fun and you're taking him seriously. Who cares who broke the story, first of all. secondly, to get the scoop doesn't mean you're the only one to have it, it means you're the first to have it.

Be real fool.

It surely would be nice if someone, anyone on this staff would write anything remotely relating to football. I've read many times that Bill Parcells has a penchant for picking one of the local media for his "sounding board". Apparantly, it's not anyon on the Herald, in particular not Armondo. I'd rather read wild ass guesses instead of this warmed over crap. Sure miss when Jason Cole was the beat writer...
