Donald Driver has waltzed away with the "Dancing With the Stars" mirror ball trophy - or rolled away. Driver, hearing in Tuesday night's show that he'd beaten Katherine Jenkins, dropped to the floor and rolled several times before jumping back up and being leapt upon by partner Peta Murgatroyd for a dancing hug. Appropriately, their gymnastic celebration was energetic yet graceful. Over the course of the competition, Driver talked with the L.A. Times' Sports Now blog about his "DWTS" odyssey - about his relationship with Murgatroyd , facing the pressure of the competition and his family's reaction. It turns out, being an NFL star is great preparation for the pressure and physical strain of a ballroom dance competition.

The multiple medalist shared his reality-TV ambitions Friday on the "Today" show, telling Matt Lauer, "I'm definitely looking toward 'Dancing With the Stars' and 'The Bachelor,' so we'll see what happens. " Lochte's definitely headed out to L.A., he said, at least for a while. He said he's interested ultimately in pursuing a fashion-design career on the West Coast.

Yet "My Friend, Martin" stubbornly remains less than the sum of its parts.
