Football Star Hines Ward Is Crowned New `Dancing' Champ

Hines Ward can add a disco-ball trophy to his Super Bowl shelf.

The Steelers wide receiver and former Super Bowl MVP won the "Dancing With the Stars" title Tuesday, besting actresses Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane to become the season 12 champ.

The champion was chosen by viewer votes combined with judges' scores.

Ward and professional partner Kym Johnson came into the season finale tied for first place with Kane. The couple added another 30 points to their total Tuesday.

The 35-year-old Ward is the second professional football player to win the "Dancing" crown. Emmitt Smith won in 2006.

      You mean he will pay for it just like Emmitt Smith did? Oh thats right, his on the field play speaks for itself. Hines Ward is a punk on the field, if this does anything it shows that he is not a punk in real life.

        This "punk" is a Super Bowl MVP. And an example of "not a punk" would be who?

        I did see that and I'm sure he appreciated it. Nonetheless, he is still going to take a lot of ribbing from his teammates. I wouldn't be surprised if some wanted the next dance. LOL.
