Finally ESPN gets Something Right

Well here is a pleasant ESPY awards spoiler for you fellow Vols to chew on.
Candace Parker was selected overall female athlete of the year and female college athlete of the year. She led our beloved Tennessee Vols to a second consecutive NCAA national championship and then went on to become the WNBA’s No. 1 draft pick and going to the Los Angeles Sparks.
“I’m just excited I got to meet David Beckham,” said Parker, who received her trophy from the English superstar. “I grew up playing soccer, so I love David Beckham. I was thinking, ‘Don’t trip, don’t trip.’ He’s truly an inspiration.”
Coaching legend Pat Summitt, who won her eighth NCAA championship as coach of our beloved Lady Vols, was named coach-manager of the year. She beat out Terry Francona of my beloved Boston Red Sox, Tom Coughlin of the New York Giants and Doc Rivers of the Boston Celtics thus proving she can take on the professional coaches.
The Lady Vols also won an ESPY for top women’s collegiate team.
Of course this whole retarded event will not be aired until this Sunday at 9:00 PM EST. I’ll be watching the Deadliest Catch.
GO VOLS! 🙂
