For those of you who didn’t know tonight was the 25th ESPYs, Peyton Manning was hosting.
Say what you want about the ESPYs, but for the most part, they are pretty entertaining. Mannings’performance was good and had a great monologue. He took a shot at Super Bowl 51,naturally.

Manning continued on that trend of winning teams and decided to go after Golden State Warrior and NBA Champion Durant, who was in attendance. The joke that he dropped, hilarious! Give Manning full marks. However, Durant was less than impressed. Manning then proceeded to ask what Russell Westbrook thought, the camera panned, and Russell acted weirded out. Peyton quickly moved onto the next joke.

Like any good sport, Peyton Manning took his shots as well, New England Patriots’ Julian Edelman had the best of the night.
Julian Edelman absolutely roasts Peyton Manning. Does this guy write his own stuff? pic.twitter.com/bCd4D8jqfW
