Summer is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing - a new series of ABC’s “The Superstars” will soon be upon us! The show that is to athletic endeavor what “Dancing With The Stars” is to … um, dancing, is set to kick off on June 23. (Although I admit I often get “The Superstars” confused with “Battle of the Network Stars”. Speaking of, when’s “BNS” gonna get it’s own 21st-century revival, huh?)
(Kent & Landry - kicking butt this summer on ABC!)
Anyway, Tom Hoffarth of FARTHER OFF THE WALL gives us the scoop on what agile athletes will compete in this season’s run - and who’ll be pared up with which “celebrity”. (Tom’s quotes, not mine - although I’d be inclined to agree with most of the upcoming examples.)
For instance, former L.A. Dodger/San Francisco Giant, Vin Scully hater & gay marriage opponent Jeff Kent will be on the program. So some folks may be enticed to tune in just to root against Jeff. But many others will watch probably because of Kent’s predetermined teammate: Ali Landry.
