The ESPYs are bittersweet. It’s an amazing time to celebrate sports, pop-culture and entertainment but the annual awards show also signifies the depressing start of the summer sports dry season. No football, no basketball, no life. But I digress.
This year I was fortunate enough to attend and cover the ESPYs for SLAM Magazine. I interviewed a few NBA players on the red carpet of the ESPN Body Party (you can watch the video here). The next day, it was time for the real show. I thought it was interesting to see the production in person since I was so used to seeing it from my couch. Here are ten things you missed during the live show:
I mean I can understand why… This half field goal by Carli Lloyd was beyond ridiculous.
It looks like there was a big crowd because they started moving everyone to the front and using seat fillers.
Maybe I’m biased, but I thought Drake was way funnier as a host last year.
What a great time to throw it back to the most awkward ESYPs Kiss Cam of all time.
But we were in LA, and we all know what happened there…
This also did not go over well.

It seems like I wasn’t the only one who noticed.
This is LA aka the magical land of Oz.
This is them casually coming in with an army. I was half expecting to see James Harden tbh.
