Perhaps the line of the night was just before they went off air, when Seth Meyers said, "Stay tuned to ESPN for an encore presentation of 'The Decision.'"
The man was pure genius all night, I was literally laughing so hard I couldn't breathe at points. The song was a little lame, as was the "Best Moment" going to Landon Donovan for the goal that prolonged the anticipated suffering the team endured by losing to Ghana - where they kick rocks around instead of soccer balls.
I just took a look at the gift bag that nominees and presenters got. It's nuts how those who make all the money get it free, and those who don't, probably will never enjoy 90% of what's in the bag.
Brett Favre has no sense of humor, as was evident during his lack of emotions when cameras panned to him during Seth Meyers' jokes. Retire!! He took home "Best Play" after the wide reciever made the best catch of his life. Fordham baseball player Brian Kownacki's Superman leap over the catcher was the best play I saw all year. The kid jumped over another player in an actual game, and was SAFE. Brett Favre, you media whore.
Tennessee Titan RB Chris Johnson was somewhat inaudible and incoherent, both when he won his award for "Best Breakthrough Athlete" as well as prior to the show with Erin Andrews.
Peyton Manning is still the funniest athlete alive, regardless of who writes his material. Will Ferrell is quite possibly the funniest man alive, and Seth Meyers was the best ESPY's host alive. Tracy Morgan is the funniest black man alive, and I'm pretty sure I can listen to him speak for days on end.
And finally, although he's stuggling through his round today, "Lefty" Phil Mickelson was named "Best Male Golfer". Well, the fans got that one right. Not really a big year in golf as Seth Meyers put it, "Tiger Woods got into a little car accident".
That was only the beginning of his Tiger and LeBron bashing and honestly, I could have listened to that all night long. Seth Meyers did a great job.
It's so damn hot in here, I can't even think. Having a hard time typing with sweat dripping from my brow onto the keyboard. Not to mention the sweat in my eyes. And this damn fly keeps cruising around, time to swat his ass.
