Team 1970s Football will crush Team 1950s Tennis on ‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes,’ readers say

Expect a blow-out between the team dances on Week 2 of “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes.” In a recent poll, a whopping 72 percent of our readers think Team 1970s Football will destroy Team 1950s Tennis. (Check out our live blog recapping week two right here.)

That’s hardly a shocking result since Team 1970s Footballs is rather stacked: Adam Rippon and Jenna JohnsonMirai Nagasu and Alan BerstenArike Ogunbowale and Gleb Savchenko, and Jennie Finch Daigle and Keo Motsepe.

Team 1950s Tennis consists of Josh Norman and Sharna BurgessChris Mazdzer and Witney CarsonKareem Abdul-Jabbar and Lindsay Arnold, and Tonya Harding and Sasha Farber.

In terms of top scorers, the teams are evenly split between the top two, Rippon and Norman, who each received a 24, and Nagasu and Harding, who tied with 23 last week. But at 47, Harding is the second oldest contestant left and is on the same team with the oldest wannabe hoofer, 71-year-old Abdul-Jabbar, who also got the lowest score last week, a 17.

Team 1970s Football, meanwhile, boasts two frontrunners in Rippon and Nagasu, and two pretty decent performers who have a lot of potential in Ogunbowale and Finch Daigle. If everyone performs to the same level as they did last week, it may very well be a touchdown for Team 1970s Football.
