Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

A little while back, we shared with you our favorite Dougie dance renditions from 2010 -- a list that contained its fair share of sports stars. Well, this morning, we stumbled across a clip from ESPN that pretty much covers the same ground, while solely focusing on sports stars and forgoing adorable pandas. Their list does, oddly enough, contain a wolf, though.

More important, perhaps, is that the crew of commentators, which includes former Morning News and Times-Herald scribe Skip Bayless, had some help in this bit: The rapper for which the dance was named, Doug E. Fresh, visited the studio to talk a little bit about the dance's inspiration and to help grade the renditions shown.

Give it a watch after the jump.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
