Pennington raps at start of Dolphins practice

The prospect of playing for the first time this season has Chad

Pennington in the mood to dance.

As Eminem’s ”Lose Yourself” blared through the loudspeakers,

Pennington broke out his best hip-hop moves before the Miami

Dolphins’ practice Friday. Teammates laughed as they stretched, and

coach Tony Sparano smiled, too.

Pennington was promoted to the starting job this week and will

play for the first time since early in the 2009 season when Miami

faces Tennessee.

He also rapped along to Eminem at practice a month ago.

A video of Pennington’s routine was posted on Dolphins’

website.
