When I heard that Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, founder of Audionet (that company that became Broadcast.com and sold to Yahoo and made him $5.9B) Chairman of HDNet and writer of one of the more intelligent and interesting blogs (Blog Maverick) was going to be a contestant on Dancing With The Stars this season, I realized I was finally going to be broken down. Yes, I will be watching Dancing With The Stars without being tied down or chained to the sofa by my wife and daughter who love the show anyway. I'll be watching to see how Mark does and probably be voting for him because I respect him and like the fact that while he is very wealthy and successful, he is a "common man's" rich guy. I don't always agree with him, but always follow his blog because he says what he thinks without pulling punches.
If you have the chance, check out the show tonight as he'll be dancing his way to fun and fame in front of the TV audience. Plus, he really needs our support in the voting realm as the competition includes folks like Sabrina Bryan from Cheetah Girls (Popular Disney Channel Movie) - she'll be getting a good number of the tweener vote anyway.
