Always looking for an excuse to party… the city of Pittsburgh is holding a rally to congratulate Hines Ward on winning the 12th season of Daning With The Stars. Though he won back in May, he will be honored as he should be with a rally and celebration at the City County Building on Thursday.
Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said, “City residents and the Steelers Nation have contacted my office asking for the city to properly thank our hometown hero for once-again shining the spotlight on Pittsburgh.”
Joining Ward at the ceremony will be his dancing partner Kym Johnson, and the day will be officially deemed Hines Ward and Kym Johnson Day.
“I am back to thank the city of Pittsburgh and Steelers Nation for all their support during Dancing With the Stars,” Ward said in a statement. “I wanted to win this trophy for the city of champions and for the greatest fans in the world.”
After making it to the Super Bowl in Feburary, I am sure Pittsburgh fans were hoping Ward would be bringing a different trophy back to the city…
