The annual ESPY award show finishes the year out in sports. Teams and fans gather to accept their award or to cheer on their fellow athletes. With the red carpets complete and stars seated the show aired live at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles last night (July 16).
Too bad the entertainment wasn’t coming from the TV screen but our computer screens. Neither the Drake “sidepiece” song or Michael Sam speech had everyone buzzing as much as the Twitter jokes did. The buffoonery taken place that social medium turned out to be more entertaining then Drake’s SNL-inspired hosting gig.
And even thought the show concluded at the Nokia Theatre, the comedy was still ensuing online and #NewEspyCategories was created. Dissatisfied with the exhausted categories, sports fans but the ESPY’s in their own hands. With a humorous and slandering angle, fans began tweeting and creating memes to illustrate exactly what categories and who their first nominee would be.
