Colin Kaepernick

49ers at the ESPYs: Colin Kaepernick stares down Richard Sherman, Drake slanders Michael Crabtree

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.

I’m looking forward to Crabtree torching Sherman on Thanksgiving, like the turkey he is. GO 9ers.

Man that was a painful 5 minutes to watch. Would rather see home run derby on an endless loop with Berman screaming “Back, Back” than another moment of craptastic Drake.

Talk about creating a controversy… CK just sits there but he’s ‘staring him down’?  Makes for a good headline and catches eyeballs.

Man, aren’t foot injuries the worst. I messed up my foot 2-3 months ago and I still can’t walk without looking like I’m 80.

@HawksawJimDuggen AdrianReynolds It could happen because Sherman has gotten too full of himself and Crabtree is hungry and motivated. And, I already have a bro (3 of them).

Good post.

Yes unfortunately the ESPYS has turned into a program to showcase hoodlums in professional sports.

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 …

STUPID SEACOCK CUNTS. THE NINERS ARE THE GREATEST TEAM OF ALL TIME. THE SEACOCKS ARE A ONE YEAR WONDER! THEY TALK ABOUT “OWNING THE NFC WEST” WHEN THE NFC WEST WAS SHIT! A BUNCH OF IDIOTS! SINCE 1981-2002 THE NINERS HAD 20 WINNING SEASONS AND 5 CHAMPIONSHIPS WHICH NO OTHER TEAM HAS ACCOMPLISHED! SO FUCK OFF SEACOCKS AND GO SUCK RICHARD SHERMANS DICK!

Ryan C Richmond   Is that your metric for judging a player’s skill?  What he was traded for?  Sounds about right for the typical ingenue Hawk fan.

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.

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 …

@TwentyHBCurlXup, not quite sure what your trying to say with ingenue? Might want to know what a word means before you try looking smart. Obviously I’m not judging Johnson on what he was traded for, but a lot of Niners fans seem to think he’s gonna tear it up. If Buffalo thought he was so good he’d still be there. He’s not clutch at all and is definitely declining.

Absolutely! The games will be epic. The NFC West will bd a meat grinder.

TwentyHBCurlXup AdamSmith12  I stand corrected! The Niner’s have had 4 winning seasons since the Seahawks have come back into the NFC West.
In 2002 they were 10-6, in 2011 they were 13-3, in 2012 they were 11-4-1 and in 2013 they were 12-4.
I was wrong, and I admit it.
