Media giant ESPN hosted their 20th annual ESPY Awards last night. Among “awards” such as Best Upset or Best Moment, ESPN also does tradition awards like Best NBA Player or Best MLB Player.
For Best NFL Player, the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers brought home the hardware. I’ll wait while you recover from the complete shock that just overtook your body.
Seriously though, was there any other award that was so blatantly obvious as Best NFL Player? Couldn’t ESPN have announced this award at about Week 12 of the 2011 season and simply dropped it from the program?
Anyways, kudos to Rodgers on another trophy to add to his growing case of hardware. I’m sure this one will sit right next to his MVP and Super Bowl MVP trophies.Follow @MatthewJStein
