Must Be the Mambo
"Like watching a bulldog chase a squirrel." That's how Mark Cuban and his dance partner Kym Johnson wound up scoring an 18 during their "Ride Wit Me"-lite mambo. Might wanna check out the video below, if you missed Cuban's Dancing With the Stars appearance last night -- could be close to his last, as only Wayne Newton posted a worse score than the Mavs owner. "Hopefully the smile will be big enough you wont notice if Im a little off in a few places," he wrote yesterday on his blog, though the judges don't appear to read Blog Maverick. There's another adiosing tonight at 8, and Cuban's looking for an assist. Ah, well -- just in time for training camp. --Robert Wilonsky
