2008 ESPYs

Random thoughts on last night's broadcast of the 2008 ESPY Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles:

  • Ray Allen went from an overpaid and washed up bench warmer to the spokesman accepting the award for Best Team. His first comment: "Another win in LA..." Oh, Ray, you so funny!
  • Host Justin Timberlake was funny, and even gave us a hilarious dance and song number.
  • Greg Oden is also hilarious. I do not think there has every been such a lovable basketball player who yet to even play in an NBA game.
  • David Tyree, accepting the award for Best Play, thanked God and Jesus first. It is good to see men of God be blessed on such grand stages.
  • Where else can you see Samuel L. Jackson and Brett Favre talking to one another on stage? The ESPYs are good stuff!
