Chicago Cubs: David Ross throws it back to the 90s with his cha-cha
By Jake Misener
In his second week on Dancing with the Stars, the judges weren’t quite as kind to former Chicago Cubs catcher David Ross and his partner Lindsay Arnold.
Last week, Team Lady and the Gramp, featuring Chicago Cubs’ fan favorite David Ross, made its Dancing with the Stars debut. His debut caught many people off-guard, drawing rave reviews from several members of the four-judge panel.
His second go-round wasn’t quite as smooth, though, as Ross and his partner Lindsay Arnold seemed less in-sync with their cha-cha routine.
"“I’m not sure. I’m kind of on the fence about it,” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba. “I hate this, but you came out with great energy. But I just felt like some of those moves are fun and goofy but they still have a style.”"

Judges criticized the lack of cha-cha content. They also told the two-time World Series champ that he needed to improve his footwork. He did, however, get credit for his energy – which hardly comes as a surprise.
"“In baseball terms, I’m sure you’re past second base,” Len Goodman told the duo. “You’re headed for third. Keep up the energy.”"
Despite the mixed feedback, Ross and Arnold finished the night in the middle of the pack, posting a 7-6-7-7 score, with Goodman serving up the low score of the panel. The team also survived the first elimination vote. The first couple to go home was comedian Chris Kattan and Witney Carson.
But if you need a highlight from Grandpa Rossy’s second week on Dancing with the Stars, he lit up Instagram rapping ‘Bust a Move’ – a hip-hop hit from the 90s. Seriously, I can’t watch it enough.
