Dancing with the Stars... Charity Gala

I doubt this post will connect with any of my 15 readers out there, as it is non-poker related.  Regardless, last night, my wife and I attended a charity event for The Jewish Foundation for Group Homes, a non-sectarian, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization, providing support and services for individuals with disabilities in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.  The theme of the night was Dancing with the Stars, where we were treated to a host of former and current Dancing with the Stars performers.

Although I won't admit to don't watch the show, my wife is an avid fan, watching both the competition and elimination shows, as well as keeping pace with the activities of the regulars on the show.  She watches, and I sit next to her, asking, on a week-to-week basis, who each hottie is (while playing poker, to keep from totally losing my mind out of boredom).  FWIW, my favorite hottie this season is the soccer player, but I also love to watch the shapely professional dancers.

Regardless, we were able to get back-stage passes from the event organizer, who happens to be a good friend of ours, and my wife was able to take a few pictures with the dancers.  Pictures below:

Ballroom dancer John Roberts, my wife and ballroom dancer Edyta Śliwińska
John actually seems to be a pretty cool guy; an every-man.  He's a down to earth, good, hard-working guy.  It's a shame he's not on the show anymore, but he's married to one of my favorite professional dancers, Anna Trebunskaya.  Edyta looks just as good in person as on TV.  Amazing legs!
My wife and Wheelchair Dancing Champion Nick "The Beast" Scott
Me, Academy Award Winner Marlee Matlin, and my wife
"HOT" Gilles Marini & my wife
I'm a little uncomfortable with this guy.  Girls just swoon over him, and deservedly so.  I though my wife was getting a little weak in the knees, but I can take him any day!  After all, I'll be he doesn't know how to play poker!
See?  Gilles has NOTHING on me!
