The 2013 ESPY Awards were handed out last night with Jon Hamm, the star of AMC’s “Mad Men” and a noted St. Louis Cardinals fan, hosting the 21st annual show from the Nokia Theatre in L.A.
Hamm joked it was “the world’s largest gathering of people wearing sunglasses indoors” as the cameras caught LeBron James and NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick behind shades. Check it out here: http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=espn:9486870
LeBron James and the Miami Heat stole the show by winning five 2013 ESPYS. But in our surfing world, Stephanie Gilmore scored the trophy for Best Female Action Sport Athlete. This was Steph’s second ESPY award for Best Female Action Sports Athlete. The last time she won the award was in 2010 in the same category.
