Man, this year’s ESPYs* is a weird-ass show. Drake (this year’s host) made a joke about Johnny Manziel watching the show on mushrooms before blowing in Lance Stephenson’s ear. Then Drake and Stephenson blew into Paul George’s ears.
Drake and Blake Griffin had a pretty funny bit where they were supposedly feuding, although I’m not sure the Chris Brown cameo was necessary.
Oh man, that R&B singer with the crazy eyes is so SCARY! That’s hilarious, because he punches women in the face! LMAAAAAOOOOO
Richard Sherman won the ESPY for best Breakthrough Athlete — the same award Colin Kaepernick won a year ago — even though Sherman was just as good if not better in 2012. But this is just a stupid TV show, like most award shows, and ESPN chose Sherman because 1) they hoped he’d say something crazy and 2) they figured it’d be fun to show Kaepernick in the audience during his acceptance speech.
Sherman didn’t really say anything (besides asking Floyd Mayweather, the other woman-beater ESPN felt like celebrating tonight, for a follow). That didn’t stop Kaepernick from staring him down like a guy who wanted to pretend this was The 2000 Source Awards and rush the stage.
A little while later, Drake started singing about athletes who earned “Honorable Mention,” (translation: fell short of winning championships) like Kevin Durant, Danica Patrick and … Kaepernick. However, instead of ripping Kaepernick, Drake took a factually incorrect shot at Michael Crabtree.
“Colin Kaepernick, you know I love to see you flex. It’s just a damn shame that Michael Crabtree can’t catch.”
Kaepernick laughed it off, because that’s what you do when you get roasted and everyone’s watching.
No reaction from Crabtree on social media; he posted a photo of himself in workout gear with no caption besides “247365 …” but that was about 10 minutes before Drake mentioned him.
In other news: football season needs to hurry up and get here, and Marshawn Lynch doesn’t have a whole lot in common with Russell Wilson besides the team they play for.

*I recently injured my foot, an overuse injury due to walking too much around the city in worn-out sneakers. That’s my excuse for watching the ESPYs, because otherwise I’d be taking a walk or donating some clothes to Goodwill or something.
@gibomb23 That might have been true in the days of Joe Montana, Jerry Rice and even Steve Young, but since those days y'all have collectively become the Forty Whiners .... most recently whining about the ESPY's because y'all got punked - and deservedly so.
WHOSE GOT IT BETTER THEN US....." NOBODY"! Remember that you FOOLS, Seattle has to depend on there LAME 12th man to win football games at home. That tells the real story.Wow they finally pulled it off and got a ring. Pretty sad but cant expect much from those loud mouth No Class HILLBILLIES. Wont ever cetch you on the, FLIP SIDE!!! ZIKE!
@gibomb23 You are right about that - you will NEVER catch us! hahahaha. Won't say anything about your grammar or name calling. Just keep on whining .... hahahaha!
To all the Seattle Fans commenting on this Bay Area sports website...comparing Seattle Seahawks (or any Seattle sports franchise) to the 49ers is like comparing Drake to Tupac. It's ridiculous. Enjoy your one Super Bowl while it lasts. You're the "hot" team for the moment but no matter what Seattle does they cannot and will never be respected like the 49ers. Gold Blooded for life.
@GoldBlooded While it lasts? It lasts forever. At least that's what we're told by frisco fans reminding everyone that they were good once.
@thebestever You're not understanding what I'm saying. The reason the 49ers will always be greater then Seattle is not just because we have 5 Super Bowls but because of game changers. People like Eddie D, joe Montana, rice, greatest receiver to ever play, Ronnie Lott, bill Walsh and the west coast offense... The list goes on. These guys changed the game and will be recognized for that forever. Do you understand what I'm saying? Seattle can never be what the 49ers are. Get it?
No one knows seacocks are Americas team but only you bandwagoners. Seachickens "Americas bandwagon!" Dam come up with your own titles and stop trying so hard for attention! 12th man belongs to texas A&M, Americas team "DALLAS COWBOYS!" Cowboys for life,
The only thing dumber than the ESPYs is all of you having your stupid slap fight in here. Thread unsubscribed.
@Pulgas de Brent Burns hahahhaha. IF the Niners won the award would you still think the ESPYs were 'dumb'?
It's funny to read posts and comments by fans of the Forty Whiners .... Everyone knows that the Seattle Seahawks are America's Team! https://www.facebook.com/SeattleSeahawksAmericasTeam And World Champs - and the best team in sports ...
And the niners - just whiners ...
Hey Dumb Ass! You're a HATER!! AT LEAST WE HAVE 5 SUPERBOWL RINGS ..& the Sea Chicken got one! Eujoy it while it last!!! 49ERS FOR LIFE ..
@TwentyHBCurlXup So, two winning seasons in the last 12...Forty niner greatness? The Niner's don't even have a winning record since the Seahawks came back to the NFC West...
@LeonardMalauulu You start your reply with "Hey dumb ass!" then call the writer "A hater". Typical Niner fan...Who is the hater? Moron!
@TwentyHBCurlXup you and all the other niner whiners can 'think' all you want - if that's what you call it ...
@LeonardMalauulu Rome once ruled all the known world...what does that mean today? The Niner's have won the NFC West twice in the last 11 years, The Seahawks have won the NFC West SEVEN times in the last 11 years.
What relevance does Super Bowl wins from 20-40 years ago have to who is best NOW?! I may hate the Steelers but at least they are not popping up here to cry "We have 6 Super Bowl wins!", nor are NE fans going on about their 3 SB wins, Dallas, etc.
Sounds like you guys are sore losers.
Yeah I can't wait for the new season to start! 'Southern Alaska vs. The Los Angeles Fill-Ins!
Grow up cry baby.
@TwentyHBCurlXup Oh yeah, just gloating big time, riling y'all up and basking in victory while we can. That said, I do expect another epic season from America's Favorite Team - especially if we can have a season relatively free from injuries and suspensions.
Good luck - I anticipate a couple of very entertaining games between two of the best in the NFL ...
Seahawks are americas team????? Lmao!! After they go back to bring nobodies for 30 more years hopefully we will never have to hear from these idiots again!!!! The sun even shines on a dogs ass(Seattle) once in awhile!!
Chill, Seattle has been tossed around from division to division, conference to conference over the years like some chumps.
They don't own shit.
Here you go: Since the Seattle Seahawks have come back into the NFC West in 2002, The Niner's have a record of 92 wins, 99 losses and one tie. The Seattle Seahawks have a record of 105 wins and 87 losses. The Niners won the division in 2002, 2011 and 2012 and earned a wild card in 2013. The Seahawks have won the division in 2004,2005,2006,2007,2010 and 2013 and earned wild cards in 2003 and 2012.
As you can see, The NCF West belongs to the Seattle Seahawks!
@TwentyHBCurlXup I agree 100%. The two best teams in the NFL...and we get to see them play at least twice.
@AdamSmith12 I'm impressed, you switched Niners for Whiners. You excited about starting 3rd grade next year?
I don't care at all that they don't play in SF, they're actually a little closer to me in SJ now.
@BA Rich You're right about that one point - America's Team Seattle Seahawks don't own shit, but they do own the 49ers and that's what makes all you Bay Area fans total Whiners!
@BA Rich @AdamSmith12 Very observant for a Niner's fan...you noted that I at least gave the Niners the respect of capitalizing their name and addressing them in a respectful manner. Then I realized that most of the people on this post are Niner's fans...who don't know the meaning of respect, who are so insecure that they cannot acknowledge the strength of an opposing team...let alone address the team with any respect using terms like Seachickens, SeaCocks and Southern Alaska's team. I started out with respectful dialog with the fans of another team in the NFC West and almost momentarily sank to the level of the common Niner fan. Look at my posts as compared to those of the Niner fans. I listed facts in contrast to the hyperbole of the Niner's fans.
By the way, Seattle joined the NFL in 1976 in the NFC West, moved to the AFC West in 1977...won several division championships while in that conference, and moved back to the NFC West to win the conference twice as many times as the Niners.
As I have stated before, The NFC West has been dominated by the Seattle Seahawks since 2002!
"We" have 5 Super Bowl rings? Must have missed your name on the roster. The Niners franchise has the rings, you don't have any.
Winning the West from '02-'10, sans a couple years when ARZ was really good, is like being the smartest kid on Down Syndrome.
Winning a title going 7-9 isn't something to be proud of.
@BA Rich You are right, they don't own shit...They own the title of champions of the NFL and a Lombardi trophy that was made in the 21st century!
And it seems to me...and most of the country...That the Seattle Seahawks own the Santa Clara Whiners.
San Francisco doesn't even have an NFL team!
@joeconnector That's clever because Niners and Whiners rhyme.
@BA Rich WOW, do you realize that the great and powerful Niners were in the division at that time...or does your absolute denial of the truth keep you from seeing this? During that time, the Niners didn't even have a winning record! You are a very advanced Niner fan...you not only make excuses for the Niners, you also can deny the truth when it is in your face.
As for the 7-9 season, they demolished the World Champion Saints in the first round of the playoffs.
Ya, no shit the Niners were in the division and they were terrible. The whole division was weak. So that's what I was getting at by saying winning a weak ass division isn't really anything to boast about. Try to keep up. I can't keep spelling things out for you, slow guy.
@AdamSmith12 @BA Rich what? . . . 3 division titles in 25 years in the AFC . . . impressive. Seattle caught on with the NFCW at just the right time . . . at the end of the 49ers 20+ year run of dominance when some bills game due and major organization changes took place. The eight seasons between Mooch and Harbaugh were the worst.
@TwentyHBCurlXup @AdamSmith12 @BA Rich Look at the competition in the two divisions. The NFC West had only 3 other teams, and they sucked...Atlanta, the New Orleans 'Aints, the Rams who were marginal at best...and don't forget the expansion Panthers...a pathetic division. All the teams besides the Niners were, on average, below .500 for the 80's and 90's. The AFC West consisted of the Denver Broncos, well above .500, the Raiders when they were great, The San Diego Chargers, and the Kansas City Chiefs. If you care to look up the records, the NFC West was the worst division in the NFL, and the AFC West was the best.
"Seahawks caught on with the NFCW at just the right time..." It was not a coincidence, the Seahawks ended the Niners 20+ years of dominating a pathetic division simply by moving it to the division.
Yes, you are right, the Niner's dominated the NFC West...until the Seattle Seahawks came back...The Niners finally had an above .500 team in the division to compete with...and their dominance ended.
But who needs facts when you are a Niner fan?
@BA Rich "Slow guy"...I like that! If you don't have the ability to make valid points, start name-calling...I hear it is an automatic victory on the grade-school playground... This is, after a Niner page, so there is really no difference.
The point that I am making is that the NFC West was a weak, pathetic division when the Niners dominated it, but that they could no longer dominate after the Seahawks came back into it, and the Cardinals joined it.
The Niners could no longer come out of the weakest division in football and automatically make it to the playoffs... with a first-round bye...they finally had some competition in the division.
@AdamSmith12 @TwentyHBCurlXup @BA Rich It doesn't surprise me that a Seahawk fan would have an inflated view of their impact on the end of the 49ers first dynasty. I know it will surprise you to know that of the 49ers 13 division titles from 81-2001, nine times the NFCW sent a second team to the playoffs and seven of those teams were 10+ win teams. Conversely, in the 12 seasons since realignment the NFCW has sent two teams to the playoffs only four times . . . and that includes that last two. Tell me again how much tougher the division got? Of course it's a different story today but from 04-10 the division was historically pathetic
And the Hawks & Cards entrance into the division had nothing to do with our newb owner firing Mooch, hiring idiots and gutting the roster. To believe anything other than that was the cause of the franchise regression is pretty silly.
Please make another snarky comment about facts. It really sells the point. NOT!
@TwentyHBCurlXup @AdamSmith12 @BA Rich This is a moot point. You talk all you want about how great the Niners were and are (You and I are in complete agreement about that, actually. I don't like the current breed of Niners, but they are a great team) and I will talk about how great the Seahawks are... and we could go around and around every day. I enjoy the back and forth...but what will actually mean something is the games they play, against the league and against each other. I will save this thread and we "get at" each other during the regular season...win or lose. The Seahawks came into the league when I was in high school, and I have been a fan ever since, I am accustomed to defending my team...win or lose.
Respectfully, Adam Smith12
@AdamSmith12 @TwentyHBCurlXup @BA Rich You got it Adam. It's going to be fun. I don't like the new breed of NFL athletes in general, but I still love the game and the 49ers. I too have been a fan for quite a while . . . I was a HS frosh when the 49ers won SB #16 so I've been pretty blessed as a fan. Always Faithful!!
@BA Rich Yo man. Try google search or wikipedia before you post something. It'll do you some good and not make you sound so stupid. The Seahawks were in the NFC West in their beginning. The 1976 season was the team's only season in the NFC until the league realigned divisions before the 2002 season, at which point the Seahawks were once again placed in the NFC West. NFC West division for 1976 and 2002 to present. AFC West from 1977 - 2002.
Get it? Damn!
