Highlights From Last Nights ESPY's!

July 11, 2019

Tracy Morgan hosted ESPN's 'ESPYs' last night, which of course is a celebration of the previous year in sports and everything was eligible, even the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team's big win just a few days ago.

Here are five highlights that come from USA Today:

1.  The Women's National Soccer Team won Best Team.  And Megan Rapinoe said, quote, "I've dropped the F-bomb on every stage I've been on for the last three days.  So we'll just spare you that.  Thanks for having us." 

2.  Alex Morgan from the women's soccer team won Best Female Athlete, and she joked, quote, "Sorry, but this is probably the second-best trophy we won this week." 

3.  Tracy Morgan did a bit about becoming "Monday Night Football's" next new commentator, and he also asked players to pay $20,000 for a box of fruit snacks for charity. 

4.  Hockey's St. Louis Blues won Best Comeback.  They went from last in the league in early January to winning the franchise's first championship in their 52-year history last month.  The Blues gave their superfan Laila Anderson a shout-out.  She's battling a life-threatening autoimmune disease. 

5.  The Pat Tillman Award for Service went to U.S. Marine Sergeant Kirstie Ennis, who was badly injured in a helicopter crash serving in Afghanistan in 2012.  

And because it's me, Adam, reporting these to you, I add the best award of the night in MY opinion:

6. Drew Brees, quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, was awarded the award for Best Record-Breaking Performance!  FYI Drew Brees is sitting only 19 touchdown throws away from surpassing Peyton Manning (539) on the all-time list!!
