I caught most of the ESPYs last night and I have to say that while the event is a bit over the top, and the jokes are pretty bad, it's not all that bad. Sure you wouldn't go out of your way to watch it, but if you say...."had to"....it wouldn't be the end of the world. Justin Timberlake was equal parts cheesy and entertaining and I pulled a quick video for you if you missed the festivities....
You can get an overall sense of the night from that video, and if ESPN could ever not release the results about 5 days early they might have something. Outside of Timberlake singing and dancing, other highlights included: A nice moment about the V Foundation from Stu Scott and Robin Roberts, John Carlos and Tommie Smith winning the Arthur Ashe award and the girls who carried the Softball player around the bases winning an ESPY.
Again, nothing to change your weekend around, but they weren't terrible. Well if you could get past the million Hummer ads and Dana Jacobson's guns. Still....not that bad.
