Sports Writers Are a Clever Bunch

I’m not a sports writer for a major media outlet, so maybe there’s some sort of editorial directive aimed at maximizing tired or cliched jokes I don’t know about. But seriously, I get it, Jason Taylor was on Dancing With the Stars, it’s not that funny.

John Clayton, ESPN.

Jason Taylor was destined to dance with Dan Snyder and the Redskins, but it took the first day of practice for Taylor’s reality show to head to Washington.

Mike Wise, The Washington Post.

Here they go again. From the people who brought you Neon Deion, Snyder Productions’ newest, big-name venture: Dalliance With The $tar$…

… And then along came Jason Taylor, merengue-ing into town, two-stepping away from that smashmouth puritan Bill Parcells, who doesn’t watch “Dancing With the Stars” and cared for Taylor’s extracurricular activities about as much as John Lithgow cared for Kevin Bacon in “Footloose.”…

…Either way, Washington traded for another big name yesterday and put the new organizational mantra of patiently building through the draft on hiatus. Out of necessity, Daniel Snyder has entered into another dalliance with a star.

Reid Cherner & Tom Weir, USA Today.

Good morning and welcome to Monday, July 21, 2008.  As Jason Taylor learned on Dancing With the Stars, it takes two to tango.  And Bill Parcells wasn’t a willing partner.

Jay Glazer,

Jason Taylor is on the verge of dancing on over to the Washington Redskins.
