I just loooooove awards season. I always thought The Golden Globes kicked it off and The Academy Awards were the end (with the Primetime Emmys sprinkled in between for fun). WRONG. I stand corrected. I am afraid that after last year's AMAZEBALLS ESPYs, I absolutely had to tune in this year and reconsider adding to my awards show must-see-TV roster. I DVRed all of it today- Sportscenter live from the Red carpet, Countdown to the ESPYs Red Carpet Interviews and the actual telecast. Seth Myers was great as a host. It was pretty sweet when everyone booed LeBron (assumed to be for his tool-bag tendencies). Myers ribbed the baby QB (Tebow) and the geriatric QB (Favre). It was a solid hosting job. I heart Seth Myers.
Best joke of the night? "It's great to be at the ESPYs in Los Angeles. This is where Sports and Entertainment come together. it's like a Kardashian sister's bedroom". Bam. Kind of true. Could be said for J. Simp as well.
After seeing this, it makes me even more excited for Football season. 7 weeks to go...GO BADGERS!
