It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, sports are hot. ESPN’s ESPY Awards are going to be even hotter this year since a certain Mad Man is going to be hosting the live awards show/celebrity worship mash-up this July 17 at the Nokia Theatre in high density Los Angeles. Given Jon Hamm’s popularity on AMC’s runaway hit show, he should provide the perfect blend of “Sports are cool” and “TV’s cool too.” After all, the ESPYs are the coolest awards show going, and “Mad Men” has to be one of the coolest programs to ever captivate the nation. Ever the fashionisto, Hamm wondered what kind of cleats he should wear with his tuxedo.
The ESPYs are turning 21 this year. For over two decades the awards show has enjoyed adulating the best athletes in the world and ESPN’s own efforts along the way.
At the ESPYs you’re as likely to see the latest “It” girl as last year’s number one pick in the NFL draft. In fact, you’re sure to see them both! VIP Concierge has tickets for the ESPYs that will put you behind center for all the excitement. Why ride the pine and watch the show at home when you can take it all in as it happens at the Nokia?
Maybe a few of Jon Hamm’s friends from “Mad Men” will make an appearance, like Christina Hendrix or Elisabeth Moss. That’s what makes the ESPYs so unique. You never know who will be doing what with whom and when they’ll be doing it. One thing’s for sure, there will be plenty of good times and A-list entertainers, athletes, models and artisans. When ESPN throws a party, it’s ain’t nothing but a good time.
You can be part of the good time. We’ve been to many ESPY Awards, and they are always more fun than tackle football in the mud on an autumn day. There’s no other show with this much dazzle and hoopla. No other awards show is certain to surprise and excite as the ESPYs. ESPN’s awards show celebrates the upset, the best and worst performances and the most ridiculous athletic achievements. Along the way, the self-deprecating hosts deliver more sports than we can possibly digest.
That’s the way the ESPYs are. They’re wild. They’re exciting. They’re unpredictable. And there are tickets waiting for you and your crew right here at VIP Concierge.
