I feel like this is all worth noting, given that this is a Pittsburgh sports website, but it's largely outside my purview. It's not that I'm too manly to worry about something girly like dancing.

Ward said in the beginning of the segment that past shoulder injuries made it difficult for him to hold his posture during the quickstep, but that doesn't seem to have held him back.
