The ESPY Edition.

Sports.
Athletes.
The Best One in the World.

Think about it. Those words "There is no one better than me" becoming literal. It's just motivating when you see the best, Be the best.

Well, without further a due:

2005 ESPY AWARDS CATEGORIES

Kansas losing was enough ;)
Best Comeback -- Mark Fields, Carolina Panthers
Congrats

Stupid injury, which he tried to play through, or else they woulda gotten the title. MVP Player in the making.

Excellent flick. Right call.

Didn't she retire? and hasn't the DC United won a championship like 4 times? You'd think a male athlete might win this one. (No, I'm not sexist if that's what you think)

Daily Sports Notes:

Tiger. Nicklaus. Rediculous. While I don't love golf, I can appreciate a 'perfect' stroke.

lead by 2:46 Lance watch

Sorry Sox. 17-1 doesn't mean shit when ya can't back it up. This is not the time for putting away your bats. I mean really, it wasn't your bats that made the 9th inning interesting. It was NY's errors, but that's technical talk that people reading this prolly could give a shit about.

(we missed our chinese food sunday night dinner. Pool, horses and beer took over.) Welcome Scott and Jason. =)
