Somebody PLEASE Let Jerry Rice Be Your Fifth Receiver

Now that Jerry Rice is retired from football, he's not going to spend all of his time simply getting "massages": He's now going to be on reality shows. Rice, along with Bo Jackson, Jennie Finch and Karl Malone, will appear on Spike TV's "Pros Vs. Joes" starting in April.


The premise of the show: Regular humans like you and me will compete "against each other and 19 famous sports figures in a variety of reality-show challenges and real sporting events - everything from football to ice skating." In other words, it's that "Dancing With The Stars" without heels. (Unless Rodman is a part of this.) Other athletes involved include Tony Dorsett, Alexi Lalas and Xavier McDaniel, who will implore all the competitors "don't come yet." No dissing on the X man.
