tomdelay dancingwiththestars 290 Tom DeLay injured practicing for 'Dancing with the Stars'Former politician Tom “The Hammer” DeLay is a little less light on his feet today.

DeLay’s Twitter feed yesterday carried a bit of bad post-rehearsal news: “Old age is catching up to me, may have a stress fracture in my foot. no [sic] worries, it’ll take more than that to keep me off the dance floor!”

DeLay returned with relatively good news two hours later: “No stress fracture! It is a pre-stress fracture. I live for another day.”

The new season premieres Sept. 21, so there’s no word on how the injury will affect DeLay’s performance, or whether pro Cheryl Burke will need to look for a new partner.

Speaking of Twitter, dance on over to Zap2it’s official Twitter feed. Hey, Tom, you’re invited, too. We won’t break anything, promise.
