For some reason, ESPN Asia aired the 2008 ESPYS on TV yesterday. Since I didn't see it the first time, I watched it. As usual, it was a great show. I think Justin Timberlake was a decent host. He had good jokes and his little sports study was funny. That's just my opinion though.
Anyways, I thought to myself "If I ever got asked to host the ESPYS I would want some demands met." Yes, my inspiration was Will Ferrell and John C. Riley, but hey, I can dream.
Demand No. 12: I want my face on a Wheaties box.
Demand No. 11: I want an ESPY award called "The Best Sports Blunder" where the best sports blooper or mistake is awarded. I also want an award for the best sports movie of the year.
Demand No. 10: I want Carrie Underwood as my co-host.
Demand No. 9: I want Shoeless Joe Jackson inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Demand No. 8: I want NASA to send me to the moon so I can play golf. Then I'll feel good about my swing and distance.
Demand No. 7: I want Jesse Owens resurrected so he can race Usain Bolt and Michael Johnson.
Demand No. 6: I want the Vince Lombardi Trophy to be renamed the Bill Belichick Trophy.
Demand No. 5: I want to play tennis against Rafeal Nadal and win.
Demand No. 4: I want the Olympic competing age lowered to 14.
Demand No. 3: I want dodgeball to become an Olympic sport.
Demand No. 2: I want my own weekly TV show on ESPN called Leemon's Weekly Sports Roast, where I can roast a coach, manager, or player each week.
Demand No. 1: I want $20 million for life from ESPN so that my demands don't have to be met.
If anyone from ESPN reads this, I'm dead serious. No not really :P. It's only a dream.
