The ESPYs may not be must watch television, but its always enjoyable watching the emcee, usually a comedian, drop some low blows on big time athletes during the opening monologue. Last night, host Rob Riggle did not disappoint.


No one was out of bounds for Riggle as he opened the show. He mocked national sensations Tim Tebow and Jeremy Lin, and ruthlessly attacked Anthony Davis’ “facial hair.” Eli Manning was called out for doing the exact same thing he did in the Super Bowl the last time, and the corrupt sport of boxing got put on blast. All in all Riggle’s performance was stellar, not quite as sharp as Seth Meyers’ 2011 opener, but certainly better than Samuel L. Jackson’s effort the year before.
