The Times is pleased to have Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones guest-blogging for us while he competes on "Dancing With the Stars." Each week while he competes on the show, Jones will answer a few questions from Sports Now editor Houston Mitchell and give some insight into the competition. Here are Jones' thoughts about Week 1, which he offered via email.
Q: They showed a great clip during the show of you dancing with your mom: How did she think you did on your first dance Monday?
My mom is my #1 fan and my greatest critic. She thinks I did a great job considering the short time I had to practice, which was only one week. She did say that due to my height and the intensity of the moves I need to improve on my posture in order to execute with more precision.
Q: You are one of the favorites going into the competition, and football players always do well on the show. Do you feel any extra pressure because of that?
