DWTS Day – February 9!

LouievitopromoABC's Dancing With The Stars will announce it's 8th season cast on Monday, February 9…and it COULD have an extreme sports star in the cast…and I am absolutely "stoked" at who it might be…

Over this past weekend, at Winter X Games 13, Sal Masakela and Todd Richards confirmed the report from USA Today back in December that snowboarder extraordinare Louie Vito interviewed for the 7th season of shows last fall, but was ultimately not chosen because of a recent knee injury, with the  spot ultimately going to Olympic star Misty May-Trainor…who injured herself severely during the competition…isn't THAT ironic, don't you think….

Is there a chance that Louie could be a part of the spring season, with late March heralding the end of the usual snowboarding season, thus freeing him up to do less in the halfpipe and more on the dance floor? LV, Little Louie, whatever you want to call him, is an EXCELLENT choice – he's fun, he's savvy, he's got a rep for being a decent dancer, and a shot on DWTS would put his name into millions of american heads in a period where they're gearing up for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic trials…

If everyone agrees, let's let ABC Know loud and LONG – go over and post a message under the Louie Vito area on ABC's DWTS Board at http://abc.go.com/primetime/dancingwiththestars/index?pn=mb&cat=23170&tid=547373

Help us get LV on DWTS! Let ABC know we'll be there for LV in Spring 08!
