The ESPY Ballot – Part 1

ESPYLast Year, Earl and I went through the ESPY ballot and made our picks. This year I opened it up to the entire 7# panel.

I’m going to go in reverse order, so you can make your picks with us as you watch the show.

This section here, is more of the “technical awards” ones we really don’t care much for, but have a certain segment that cares about it. Welcome to Sound Editing – Motorcross. No disrespect to these people, but I couldn’t pick them out of a lineup, and if I saw their name on my screen, couldn’t tell you who they are or what they did. But some writers did have picks. I’ll eliminate those that didn’t care.

Let me also state I HATE the fact that Disney moved this to ABC.

Best MLS Player

Jim: None of the above, it’s Kaka.  But from this list, Robbie Keane.

Best Bowler

Jim: Jason Belmonte

Best Female Athlete with a Disability

Jim: Kendall Gretsch, Triathlon

Best Male Athlete with a Disability

Jim: Krige Schabort, Triathlon

Best Jockey

Jim: Victor Espinoza
Joe: Victor Espinoza… who else.. rode a Triple Crown winner.

Best Female College Athlete

Joe: Breanna Stewart… Dominate 3 years, so far, at UConn and in the women’s game… arguably has led the team to three straight title with a chance to back up her stated desire to win four straight.
Steve: Breanna Stewart, Connecticut Basketball- Led UCONN to yet another undefeated season and in convincing fashion.
Jim: Lauren Haeger, Florida Softball.  I hear everyone about Stewart, but really, you need to broaden your horizons.  Watch some softball and watch one woman dominate both the pitcher’s mound and the batter’s box.

Best Male College Athlete

Jim: Logan Stieber, Ohio State Wrestling
Steve: Marcus Mariota, Oregon Football- Incredible season last year, fell just short of the National title.
David: Has to be Mariota, right? ‘Cause ESPN loves football?

Best Female Tennis PlayerWimbledon 2015, Serena Williams

Jim: Serena Williams
Joe: Serena Williams… really who else? (Goat Case)
Steve: Serena Williams- She may be the second best player (on the male circuit)

Best Male Tennis Player

Joe: Novak Djokovic… if  I gotta make a pick… guess it’s Djokovic
Steve: Novak Djokovic- He is easily the best tennis player on the male circuit. 
Jim: Novak Djokovic

Best Female Golfer

Jim: Stacy Lewis

Best Male Golfer

Jim: Jordan Spieth
Joe: Jordan Spieth
Steve:
Jordan Spieth- Winner of the Masters, this kid is an up and coming superstar.

I will be back later with part one of the BIG BALLOT!

  1. You missed a couple of mine.

    Best Female College Athlete: Lauren Haeger, Florida Softball. I hear everyone about Stewart, but really, you need to broaden your horizons. Watch some softball and watch one woman dominate both the pitcher’s mound and the batter’s box.

    I forgot male tennis player, but come on: Novak Djokovic

  2. Actually…speaking just for myself… I did watch some Women’s Softball, especially the NCAA toourney… and while Lauren Haeger put up some sparkling numbers as both a hitter and a pitcher and won her fair share of accolades… I still give it to Breanna Stewart.
