McDonald ripping into OJ...

“After grisly photos of the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson were shown in court, O.J. turned his head away and wept. It was at that moment that he realized he would never be able to kill her again.”

“In a sworn deposition this week, O.J. Simpson claimed that he never beat, choked, or hit his ex-wife with a closed or open fist. Luckily for O.J., lawyers forgot to ask if he had ever cut her head off.”

And of course there was his opening the line on the first show back after the verdict came in: “Well, it’s official: Murder is now legal in the state of California.”

The ESPY’s are typical ESPN- self serving fluff, no depth, corny, boring shit. It’s an awful presentation. I never thought anything could be worse then the Oscars, Emmys, and all that bullshit that I never understood, but they are at least legitimate historical award shows. Plus someone tell ESPN that they already give the real sports awards out so they can skip th dog and pony show. I guess it’s that important for the losers like “Bouggie” and SVP that they are cool even amongst athletes. Maybe SVP wears his beats and talk hip hop with some 20 year old rookie. Also, do we need to see another 6’5” WNBA player trying to fit into a gown and heels? No

Spot on, and

The ESPYs represent everything bad about sports: Ego, self-aggrandizing, false nobility, dwelling on the trivial, and the subjective re-judging of things already decided objectively.


There’s an ESPY for “best NHL player.” I prefer the league’s Hart Trophy.

There’s an ESPY for “best NFL player.” Isn’t there an NFL MVP award?

The overlap is stupefying. The big difference: Nobody remembers who won an ESPY, except when Caitlyn Jenner won the ESPYs’ “Courage Award” in 2015.

After that, rightly or wrongly, lots of people remembered to not watch ESPN.

Only one thing is worse than the ESPYs: The relentless barrage of promotion leading up to the ESPYs.

The ESPYs did have one shining moment: When comedian Norm Macdonald hosted in 1998.

Macdonald puts sports in its place, and nearly everybody in the building wanted to kill him. As Macdonald said later, the jocks don’t like being made fun of, and that goes back to high school. Witness his brilliance below.

Don’t watch the ESPYs. Let the whore of sports media diddle itself in private.
