After watching the ESPYS you have to wonder what some of the nominees are feeling. For example, the nominees for best team were: the New York Giants, the Boston Red Sox, the Boston Celtics, the Detroit Red Wings, the Kansas Jayhawks, and....the Tennessee LADY VOLUNTEERS! I wonder what the Vegas odds were for a women's college bball team to win "best team," 10,000-1? 100,000-1? I bet the odds weren't very good for the men's college team, the Jayhawks, either. How about being a "minor" sport? A female skiier was nominated for best female athlete, a female tennis player was up against Adrian Peterson in Best Breakthrough Athlete, a track and field athlete was up against Brett Favre for best record breaking performance, and the 2 most anticipated categories: Best Male/Female Action-Sports Athlete, and Best Bowler. (Just for the record, Norm Duke won for best bowler...so there you go.) Don't get me wrong, I love all sports (except soccer...BORING!) but to put some of these people in these categories, it's like nominating Michael Bay with Scorsese and Coppola.

I was pleastantly surprised at how good a job Timberlake did hosting, although the Memphis/Kansas thing got a little tired. The best moment was probably Will Ferrell and John C Reilly making demands requests in order to be the hosts of the show ("I want to play 18 holes of golf with Tiger Woods...on the moon.") All in all it was a great way to spend my Sunday evening, especially in HD.
