Dancing with the (All-) Stars Week 9: 2011 Hughes de Beauvignac Picpoul de Pinet, Languedoc, France

  Well, it’s the next-to-last week of Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars. It’s been quite a ride. Who will be competing for the “new and improved” Mirror Ball Trophy next week? The Rib and I agree on 2 out of 3. Ooh, conflict! Makes for better reading, right? You be the judge… The Dances Melissa Rycroft/Tony Dovolani Caveman Hustle (Judges’… Read more →

Dancing with the (All-) Stars: Weeks 7 & 8: The Show Must Go On…

  Sorry about the delay in reporting on Week 7 performances. The Rib and I were both super-busy last week (you can see the fruits of my labor here, where I did a special tribute to the United States Marine Corps), election coverage dominated the airwaves and the interwebs (to include my CorkEnvy Town Hall 2012 before the election), and… Read more →

Dancing With The (All-) Stars Week 2: 2009 Maipe Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza, Argentina

Week 2 performances are down and we saw a little Jive, a little Quickstep, and a little in-between. The Dances Melissa Rycroft/Tony Dovolani Jive (Judges’ Score: 23.5) The Rib: Melissa’s cheerleader background really comes to the fore in the Jive—expected a “hurkie” at the end! It was a good performance, but she seemed to be “run off her feet” a… Read more →

Dancing With The (All-) Stars Week 1: 2006 Shane Wines “The Unknown” Syrah

With Week 1 Dancing With The Stars performances behind us, The Rib and I break down the dances and a bottle of wine. Enjoy! The Dances Joey Fatone/Kym Johnson The Rib: Good kick-off to Season 15, but the “Fat One” needs to ease up on the facial expressions—came off as a smidge overdone. Stub: Seemed like Joey was a bit… Read more →
