Hines Ward and Kym Johnson had an emotional night during the semi-finals of Dancing with the Stars. After Kym recovered from a dangerous neck injury, Hines broke down in a rare emotional moment and tearfully wept. Hines revealed what he was thinking during those moments of the show.
Hines discussed his emotions right after his dance blogging for the LA Times. “I was just happy we made it through the dance. I mean after seeing Kym get injured like she did, nothing mattered to me except her health. I thought she had broken her neck at first and it really hit me. My first thought was that this competition wasn’t worth her future or her life. So when we were able to complete the dance and seeing her go through it after what she went through was overwhelming for me. She has done so much for me and I was just so glad she was OK. I guess I lost it for a moment. She is the best and I am just glad she is OK.”
Hines also believes that Kym is as tough as any of his Pittsburgh Steeler teammates. “Kym is a trooper. She is an athlete and a true Steeler and has the never-quit mentality. She believes in me and that we can win this competition and will push herself beyond her limits. I respect and admire her for that. She is a great coach and I owe my success in dancing so far to her. I think our team shares the same never-quit mentality and I am sure my teammates, veterans and rookies alike, appreciate Kym’s work ethic like I do.”
