The 25th annual ESPY Awards were last night, and as usual, it was a three-and-a-half hour cry fest with some sports highlights mixed in between.
During the three-hour telecast, the former First Lady took the stage in Los Angeles to award the Arthur Ashe courage to Eunice Kennedy Shrive, the founder of the Special Olympics.
‘I am here tonight to honor a remarkable woman, a woman who believed everyone has something to contribute, and everyone deserves the chance to push themselves and find out what they are made of and to compete and win,’ Michelle said.
‘She knew when we gave others the greatest chance to fulfill their potential, we all win. So nearly 50 years ago, she created the Special Olympics, and over the course of her life she turned that visionary idea into a worldwide movement with competitions across the globe.’
And while Eunice Shrive no doubt deserves all the praise in the world, we’re here for one reason and one reason only: to talk about how damn fine Michelle was looking.
