In the midst of the summer, it is time to look back and reflect on all the outstanding achievements made in athletics with the annual ESPYs. This year, it is hosted by former Nascar and Formula One driver Danica Patrick. Patrick will open up the award show, like all previous hosts, with a monologue teasing fellow athletes in attendance. Although no one truly knows how she will do as a host, I just hope that she does not crash and burn like her stock cars did during her racing career.
On a sadder note, one award that will be given out with no nominees is the “Jimmy V Award” which will be given to former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly. As many people know, Kelly has been battling cancer for several years now and will be honored for his fight against this life-threatening disease. This past week, it was reported that Kelly will need to see a physician for an “unexpected” checkup. Let us hope that he will be able to overcome this ordeal and be granted with a clean bill of health in the near future.
Overall, it does not really matter who wins any given award. The event is focused on highlighting all of the fantastic moments that sports fans around the world had the pleasure of witnessing. Just kick back and relax while the nostalgia does the rest of the work.
