Something Funny Happened At The ESPYs?

The scene is an ESPN board room. A group of men in suits sit around a giant table. The tension in the room is palpable, as a deadline races closer and closer.

Director: We've got a problem. There is literally nothing to air Wednesday night. No MLB, no NBA, not even a World's Strongest Man episode.

Producer: Can't we just show a WNBA game? The Liberty are playing.

Director: Get out.

The producer leaves, ashamed.

Director: Now, where were we?

Workplace D-Bag: I've got an idea! What if we made an award show, for sports!

Director: That sounds miserable. But it's the best we've got.

And thus, the ESPYs were born.

But hey, it can't be all bad if you include Paul Rudd and Steve Carell.
