Yode's Corner: Wedding dance floor

This article is dedicated to the wedding dance floor. That simple piece of hardwood brings out the passion in all who cross her on that wedding night. For the bride and groom it starts the fire for the first night of their new union. For the older people in the crowd maybe it might rekindle a spark from times past. For all the single people it is their chance to impress someone special leading to a hookup that all weddings are famous for. The mixing of good music with liquid courage brings out the dancer in all of us.

You have to love the guy willing to try to do the worm, or the moon walk, maybe the running man. The dance moves themselves are priceless; Thriller, the Robot, break dancing backspin, the shopping cart, the sprinkler, the lawn mover, M.C. Hammer slide, and the list goes on and on. My personal favorite, which I performed at the wedding after the J.D. kicked in, "the motorcycle pickup". It's an advanced move which requires two people. The first person, aka the rider, must start up his hog and cruise it around the dance floor looking for that special someone, aka the pickup person, who hopefully is a hot lady looking to jump on and cruise around with you. All these moves are classics in the annuls of dance history. But don't overlook that occasional slow dance for that chance to snuggle up tight. For me the night ended great with my beautiful wife extremely impressed by my powers of dance.

I wish all you wedding goers good luck this upcoming wedding season. And a big cheers to the wedding dance floor, you bring everyone together for a night of fun, celebration, and unity that all will cherish for a lifetime.

Todd Yoder will be a guest author on this blog from time to time. We hope you enjoyed his first post.

I enjoyed Yoda's first post, but I think the entire thing demands clarification via YouTube. I want to see his powers of dance for myself.

Yo Yoder, thanks for the update while the Cooley's are chillin in the Bahamas. You and your wife are very cute together! Thanks for the post!


Very touching post.

Yode! I have to say, between Chris and yourself, you two have broken the mold of the professional athlete's blog. Gilbert Arenas's blog may get a lot of hype, but he regularly struggles to write coherently.

Anyway, I think it would be pretty bad-ass to get a video up of the Motorcycle Kick Start. Awesome.

Great first post Yoder. I will most def look forward to you when you "guest blog". The dancing this is funny tho because all that you mentioned im sure we've all tried those dances or at least seen someone do those dances. I call myself a dancing queen machine LOL.

Is a J.D. sort of like a DJ? Just teasing... Just had to yank yer chain. Just wanted to comment here for the first time and say I like Chis' style. He reminds me of my favorite Redskin ever ... John Riggins and it's not just the hair. LOL
Rock on dude,

Great post and amazing blog. Besides Yoder who were the other players at wedding? There seems to a be a lack of color among the guests. CP? Samuels? Santana? ARE?

Samuels, ARE, J. Camp were all at the wedding. No CP or Santana though.
