Jerry Rice's Tragic Downward Spiral

Our continued sympathy for legendary wide receiver Jerry Rice and the incredible difficulty he's having dealing with post-football life is well-documented, but it hit a new level today: It appears Rice, in a Rodman-esque publicity ploy, will appear on the second season of "Dancing With The Stars."

Now, this is bad enough. But check out who else will be on the show with him. "Melrose Place" (and other soaps) star Lisa Rinna. Robert Wagner! Oh, and Nick Lachey. No, wait ... Nick Lachey's younger brother, Drew Lachey.

How low is Rice sinking? Old "Saturday Night Live" failure Kevin Nealon was asked to be on the show, and he can't decide whether he wants to do it or not.

Again: Somebody give Rice a job in football. Doing something. Anything.
