Awaiting the ESPYs, But (Still) Missing Norm MacDonald

It's the Wednesday after the MLB All-Star Game, which means if the Triple-A All-Star Game isn't your bag, your only other "sports" programming option for the evening is the ESPYs. Seth Meyers is hosting, but don't count on the gags to be nearly as subversive as some at the WWL will have you believe. Besides, nothing Meyers is going to deliver tonight will come anywhere close to this earth-scorching performance Norm MacDonald delivered in 1998, which we're more than happy to provide again for your enjoyment.

If you're so inclined, you might want to take part in the little ESPYs contest the folks at Sports Illustrated are having on Twitter. Or talk about the ESPYs in DUAN.

We've also got links back to some of our past coverage of the ESPYs. Just because.
