Hines Ward Advances On 'Dancing With The Stars' (Video)

Hines Ward is still alive on Dancing With The Stars after dancing the rumba with partner Kym Johnson this week, but judges note that he should try to be a bit more adventurous:

Carrie Ann Inaba praised his talent but said he needs to start taking more risks.

Her colleague, Len Goodman agreed, and said "he's got to mix that [risk-taking] with his natural ability to come out and shine, and he's going to be awesome."

Judging from his routine this week, and with the caveat that I know less about dancing than a Mongolian goat herder knows about Grand Theft Auto, I think they're right. His routine this week was fine, but nothing terribly earth-shaking. Johnson is a whirling dervish, but Ward mostly just stands there watching her. He could do a lot more. And honestly, I felt like the patriotic theme was a bit much. Here's the video.
