ESPN announced on Tuesday that Peyton Manning will serve as host of the 2017 ESPYs.
“It’s an honor to be asked to host the ESPYS, and it’s even more meaningful that it’s the 25th year for this incredible event,” Manning said in a statement, via ESPN. “The ESPYS have been a part of my life during my entire career. I can still remember attending my very first show back in 1998 before my rookie season in the NFL.”
I am not sure Peyton Manning will be a funny host, but do you remember those Youtube videos of Manning picking on the little kids playing backyard football? Those were hilarious, so who knows. This could be great.
