Just wanted to remind all of you that Double D, Mr. Donald Driver of the Green Bay Packers, is going for the Mirror Ball trophy tonight on Dancing With the Stars.

Donald put out a challenge to Packer Nation–he wants to break the record for the most votes ever in the 14 season history of DWTS.  Do we have what it takes? We have to counter-act the judges’ favoritism for certain dancers–and we all know by now that Donald is not one of them. 😉

If you’ve got a Twitter account and don’t already follow him, Driver’s handle is donald_driver80 which is also fed to his Donald Driver Facebook account. You can also follow Donald’s dancing partner, Peta Murgatroyd.

Donald has not only been an outstanding player on the field, he and his wife Bettina have done a  lot of charitable work in the Green Bay area with the “Donald Driver Foundation.”   The organization offers support to many other places like Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Goodwill, just to name a few.  No matter how successful he’s gotten, he always remembers to Pay It Forward in innumerable ways.  In short, he’s one of the “good guys” that I will gladly support.

Program your phones to #teamdrivingmisspeta 1.800.VOTE.403 or 1.800.868.3403.  Text code is 3403You can also vote via your email addresses.  That’s right, if you have more than one email address, you can vote for each address.  Just sayin’.

Go Team Donald!

Just wanted to remind all of you that Double D, Mr. Donald Driver of the Green Bay Packers, is going to be on Season 14 of Dancing With the Stars starting Monday, March 19th. The two-hour season opener begins at 7pm CST on WBAY-TV (ABC). We all know Driver has the moves on the field, but does he have what it takes to beat the likes of Martina Navratilova, Urkel or Half-Pint?

I’ll be watching the show as I clip coupons every Monday night.

Donald’s been Tweeting up a storm during rehearsals, so if you’ve got a Twitter account and don’t already follow him, his handle is donald_driver80 which is also fed to his Donald Driver Facebook account. You can also follow Donald’s dancing partner, Peta Murgatroyd.

Don’t forget to vote after the show every week if you think Donald and Peta did well.  Packer Nation won’t disappoint, I’m sure, but this is supposed to be a competition, not just a popularity contest.

At any rate, Go Team Donald!

Guilty Pleasure: Sports Night Complete Series 52% off

(Sigh).  Did you ever love a TV show so much… that’s the case with me and Sports Night.  Years before Felicity Huffman became a star on Desperate Housewives and before Peter Krause stepped into his role on Parenthood, there was Sports Night.

Sports Night is a behind-the-scenes look at an ESPN SportsCenter-type show. Felicity Huffman plays a producer on the show, something I was doing in real life at the time the show aired. Peter Krause plays one of the anchors on the show.

It’s a comedy and a drama, too. ABC, the network that aired the show, never really knew where to put it on their schedule and certainly didn’t know how to promote it.  Sort of like what they did to Pushing Daisies.

The show was written by Aaron Sorkin, the man behind The West Wing.  You might also like Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip which is 70% off right now which is also a behind-the scenes look at a TV show, this time it’s Saturday Night Live.  Smart and funny television at the same time–the stuff I love.

Sports Night: The Complete Series 10th Anniversary Edition is only $33.49 right now on Amazon which is 52% off the MSRP.

Amazon can change prices at any time.

Guilty Pleasures are posts of things that personally interest me, NOT necessarily the things that are tearing up the blogging world because of fabulous deals. Many time I do find good deals on the items but sometimes they’re just okay. Sometimes it ties in to a current event. Sometimes I just like to share, hoping they inspire you with ideas.
