    There was a nomination show on ESPN2. An award that really means nothing considering the station it comes from but still relevant and something to talk about during this off-season I suppose.

    Best Male Athlete
    Tom Brady

    Best Record-Breaking Performance
    Tom Brady & Randy Moss

    Best NFL Player
    Tom Brady
    Randy Moss

    It's a pretty prestigious event, Justin Timberlake is hosting.

    And when I think sports I think NSync.

    Seriously who cares about the espys? I mean what determines the winner, fan voting? Sports writers? The whole show is just an excuse to sell ads and show some over edited high light reels.

    Beyond that, boiling the achievement of winning a championship or breaking a record down to a 30 second collection of clips and voice over totally cheapens the accomplishment. It took Brady and Moss so much work to be able to break that record, not just during game time, but all the preparation. Its not fair to the Giants to reduce all the work they put in to a shot of Brady getting sacked, the miracle head catch, and Plaxico in the end zone. Greatness is anything but easy to achieve, and to make it seem so commonplace and cheap is the complete opposite of showing appreciation for the accomplishments of the athletes they are trying to honor.

    I think the funniest part about the espys is how they usually do a bit about how we need to help in the fight against poverty, or AIDS in Africa, or something to that effect, when if the hundreds of pro athletes pooled together a little bit of their respective mountains of cash they could put an end to such problems in no time. Of course nothing is said about this except when they point out how someone like Dikembe Mutombo has spent so much time and money doing amazing things to help people, which is great but it should be what we expect of people who are lucky enough to lead such privileged lives.

    Instead we get a shot of Lebron wiping away a tear after the moving story segment, and then the host yelling out "After the break, the award for best "in yo face!" slam dunk!" followed by a commercial for mountain dew.

    Sadly, it seems everything in this country is "about the show". Whether it's sports, politics or freakn' dancing, there's a show about it!

    I can't believe the Super Bowl is probably going to win the "Game of the year" award. As hard as it is to believe, I'm seriously not being bitter. I'd give the game to the Super Bowl if there was an award for "Greatest Final 5 Minutes Of A Game Award"

    i hate espn and have always felt that the espy awards were by far the biggest waste of time the network airs. what really did it for me was the next day dan patrick spending most of his show talking about the show. the BS they did about the pats after SB 36 on their trash mag was what got me hating on espn. the pats had just beat the rams in the super bowl making it one of the biggest upstets in the history of sports, not just the nfl. the next issue that comes out has a nascar driver on the cover, and in the corner said "super patriots." i was still living with my parnets at the time andmy mother almost disowned me because of the nasty things I said about the mag when I saw the cover. I also am hoping that none of the pats players show up. f--- the f------ a-------

    The only thing good that came out of the ESPYs for me is getting to see Bill showing off those rings like a true pimp.:D
