I can't dance. Now you might think it would be because of my bad knees but no, I've never really been able to dance. I have no rythm. I'm rythmically challenged. I can slow dance but always want to lead.

I do enjoy seeing others dance so I've been in my glory watching "So You Think You Can dance" and "Dancing with the Stars". I will even watch professional ballroom dancing competitions on PBS.

That being said, what has prompted this post is Emmitt Smith. Emmitt exudes cool. He is sauve, competititve, dedicated, light on his feet and charming. So very charming.
Not to mention, nice to look at.

I did some research on him and found he is the NFL's all time leading rusher, holds 4 rushing titles and is a three time Superbowl winner. I'm sure he had some great moves on the football field but I'm loving his moves on the dance floor.

Sexy? You bet! But wait, there's more. Emmitt attended the University of Florida for 3 years before being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 1990. He made a promise to his mother that he would graduate from college and during the NFL off seasons he went back to University of Florida and graduated in 1996 with a degree in Public Relations.

One thing I really love is that he is a dedicated family man. While his practice time for Dancing with the Stars is in LA, he flies home several times during the week to spend time with his wife Pat and their 4 children.

He is involved in charity work also, being one of the founding members of "Open Door Foundation" helping to change the lives of young people.

A man's smile is the first thing I check out and Emmitt does indeed have a nice one but the rest of him ain't bad either.

Sean says he has washboard abs too, they're just under a few loads of laundry.

Dancing and singing are two universals that everyone on the planet enjoys. I'm sure that if I caught you at a New Year's Ball or a Wedding that we'd have fun on a dance floor. And that is what dancing is about, having fun while moving in and out of someone else's space :) Whether you have "rhythm" is one thing that separates the spectacular dancers from those who are simply having fun. To that end, I'm of the opinion that the more dancing someone does, inevitably they will get a little better or a lot depending on their natural rhythm and passion for it.

This fellow is definitely a good egg :)
