I watch it every year and I don't know why.

The Bill Murray / David Ross thing was painful.
I am  
pjcas18 : 7/12/2017 9:42 pm : link
nothing else on.

the story about Israel Del Toro winning the Pat Tillman award and the kid Jarius "JJ" Robertson winning the Jimmy V award for perserverance were worth it.

Plus Peyton is a natural in this role.

The Bill Murray thing was weird and awkward, but otherwise nothing else on, only day of the year with no other major sports events.

Peyton on Durant and Durant's reaction.. priceless

Julian Edelman's rip on Peyton.. again, awesome.
Durant

If he isn't, he's a damn good actor. How do you not laugh? The whole place was laughing!!!

Same here. Hate the network. Other than games they are painful to watch. cant imagine it's not an atrocity. Netflix Hulu and Amazon Prime. No reason to watch unless you secretly hate yourself

I had never watched before  
pjcas18 : 7/13/2017 9:51 am : link
last night, and the espys are on ABC, not ESPN (or maybe both, not sure). but I watched on ABC.

I really watched because my wife was watching ABC before the espy's came on, and left the channel and Peyton Manning hosted.

He was good, like I said before he's a natural in a role like this. I am not a fan of award shows or reality shows, but this was not bad at all.

I didn't agree with many of the winners, but the speeches were all brief except one annoyingly long speech from Eunice Kennedy Shriver's son Tim, she won a posthumous Arthur Ashe award for courage for founding the Special Olympics.

the two awards given out that I enjoyed the most were (as I mentioned) the Pat Tillman award for service and the Jimmy V award for perserverance.

Like ESPN, hate ESPN, like ABC, hate ABC you're soulless if you don't enjoy hearing inspirational stories like those two recipients.

and I don't even put ESPN on my TV unless there is a game on the network that I'm interested in, and haters can hate (hating ESPN is the "in" thing) and I don't mean to seem defensive or offended, I'm neither, simply trying to educate the "i'll never watch that ever , not one time in my life" for some reason pride that for some strange reasons exists.

I just watched peyton's opener. Durant was not happy at all. Aaron Rodgers wasn't all that happy about his name being dropped either.

you doth protest too much. we all get it, your the perfect modern PC man of whom we can all be proud. jeez.
Peyton Manning  
spike : 7/13/2017 10:13 am : link
should have his own talk show
I left it on ESPN..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 7/13/2017 10:18 am : link
and watched Norman Chad announce live poker until 9PM and then watched the soccer game.

I really think I came out ahead.
I watched Manning's opening dialogue  
mavric : 7/13/2017 10:21 am : link
and laughed my ass off, right down to his plugging for Nationwide and the Aflac duck sitting in the front row. Hilarious! Peyton should do comedy full time now that he's retired
The Mannings would be a great tv show

How my posts on this topic have anything to do with being PC  
pjcas18 : 7/13/2017 10:37 am : link
is a real quiz. Watching the ESPY's is now somehow a PC thing to do?

Victor, you have some strange comments, but that is one of your stranger comments.

My only point, not protest, was that despite the hatred of the network, and I get it, ESPN was once a staple for fans and has turned into a mere shell of it's former self, the show last night was not as bad as some might have expected and there were a few especially compelling segments.

probably available on youtube for those interested.

In fact one is below. If you watch this clip of Israel del Toro receiving the Pat Tillman award for service after being burned and disabled by an IED in Afghanistan. When he talks about being nervous when he saw his son for the first time after being disfigured and his son would be scared of his appearance that was real, raw emotion and I felt for the guy and was proud for him and if you think that I only like this because I'm being PC then like I said you're soulless. I'd rather be PC then I guess.

your point was a whiny, I'm the most open minded person on the planet soliloquoy. Glad you enjoyed it, but jeez, save the pontificating.
Vioctor if you read my posts  
pjcas18 : 7/13/2017 11:20 am : link
and could comprehend English, which I know you struggle with, so I'll talk loud and slowly and explain....

I only even watched it because the channel was left on, so if your own insecurities or mere stupidity force you to construe something that's not there I will not apologize.

Sorry not sorry, your inferences and conjecture are on you, so go on living with your miserable self. I weep for any offspring you have and/or any unfortunate spouse/significant other who have settled for you.

I wasn't particularly all that pressed to watch it myself but ended up being glad I did. Peyton did a great job and I think the show was pretty good overall.
I don't listen to much sports talk anymore.  
idinkido : 7/14/2017 5:26 am : link
Find whether it's ESPN or other network sport panels to be more showmanship than informative. My ears do perk up and I pay attention to Greg Cosell, Jon Gruen's QB camp, Harold Reynolds and Paul O'Neil.
