‘Vote or Die’ In This Year’s ESPY Awards

It’s BAAAAACK! That’s right it’s time for you, the fans, to decide who will win this year’s coveted ESPY Award. Taking place at the fabulous NOKIA Theater in LA, this show is sure to bring out the best, the brightest, the funniest, the best-looking, the best-dressed, the best of everything that the sports world has to offer. This year’s nominees were officially announced on June 24th, so be sure to watch envelops fly open live at the 18th  Annual ESPY Awards ceremony to air on ESPN on Wednesday, July 14, 2010 at 9PM ET and see who will walk away with sports’ top honor. Now I did do my part as a Jersey Girl and voted in all 35 categories, I do have to say that some categories where easier than others.  Personally, I was just excited to vote LeBron in the ‘Best Male Athlete’ and the ‘Best NBA Player’ categories. As the voting continues, I’ll keep you updated on who’s leading and who’s getting snubbed. So check out the list below to see who’s nominated for what, and cast your vote. As Diddy, Puffy, Diddy Dirty Money, or whatever his name is this week, said ‘Vote or Die’. Your J.G.F., Marcelle     2010 ESPY Award Nominees

  1. I wish Favre would just come out and say, “Look. I want to play. I don’t want to go through training camp. I don’t want to play in all the preseason games. Just let me know when the season starts.” I’d have a lot more respect for him instead of all the BS he pulls every year.
