Although Jewel was originally supposed to compete on Dancing With The Stars, she had to bow out at thelast minute due to an injury.However, Jewel still watches from the audience every week as hubby Ty Murray tries his hand at the ballroom. After this week’s results show, Jewel wrote down some thoughts on Ty’s Myspace blog regarding the competitionand the other contestants. Find out what she had to say…
In a blogposted by Jewel on Wednesday, April 29, 2009 she said:
“Hi there, it’s Jewel,
Just wanted to touch base and say howdy. What an exciting show last night!
I thought everyone brought their A-game and it was definitely stiff competition! Being a rodeo and bull riding fan it’s hard for me to get used to someone who is injured still getting a score.
I think the rule about “judging a rehearsal if the person is too injured to perform” was weird both times they have used it. As bad as I felt for Melissa, who I hope feels better and comes back, I’m used to our cowboy athletes that live by the rule: “ride hurt or don’t get a score.” It may seem harsh, but it seems like the only way to keep things honest.
If you’re too hurt to compete then you can’t compete. But if I were to be on the show I might change my mind. Hahah!
I know there are all kinds of ways to doing things and it sure is out of my control – that’s for sure – so I’m happy to follow along as it is, but I have to say I think the PBR has kept a lot of integrity in sports by using this rule.
Other sports, like boxing for example, pay the guys who loose so there isn’t anything on the line to make them try their hardest. And football awards contracts to guys who get played weather they decide to “bring it” any given Sunday or not.
I like that the bull riders and cowboys have to win to get paid. They get paid based on their performance and not on their reputation. That, to me, seems like the way it should be in the real world. All of us get fired if we don’t do any good at our jobs.
OK, I know, I’m probably too opinionated, but there it is…”
