Driver "Punked" By Patriots Fan

One avid Patriots fan is giving Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver a hard time on Dancing With The Stars.

Packers receiver Donald Driver is taking the reality TV show "Dancing with the Stars" by storm.

   Driver and his professional dance partner, Peta Murgatroyd, received the highest score in the most recent competition April 9 with 27 out of a possible 30 points from the three judges. They performed a paso doble to Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze."

   Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers tweeted the next day, "Unreal dance last night buddy. Keep it rollin. #DWTSchamp".

  The charismatic Driver also has struck up a good-natured rivalry with fellow celebrity dancer Maria Menounos. The actress/journalist/professional wrestler, a self-professed New England Patriots fan, "punked" Driver by filling his TV studio trailer in Southern California with Patriots paraphernalia.
  "@mariamenounos has started a war on #DWTS," Driver tweeted. "Packer Nation what should we do to her."

Menounos has been a big supporter of the Patriots, wearing her team colors while attending both Patriots Super Bowl Media days in 2007 and last season's rematch against the Giants.  Seen during media day at the Patriots – Giants, Menounos was decked out in her favorite player's Jersey (No. 12 Tom Brady).

 Losing a Super Bowl bet with her Xtra TV co-host A.J. Calloway ,  Menounos  made good on her promise by wearing a bikini in Times Square while hosting a show.

Her competitive spirit will undoubtedly make her a formidable foe for Driver on DWTS.
