If you think the only thing that happened at the EPSYs was Bruce, errrrrr, Caitlyn Jenner getting an award for fake “courage,” you’re not alone. Based on the media coverage of the event, that IS the only thing that happened. Except, it wasn’t.
Also of note, Peyton Manning received an award for breaking Brett Favre’s all time touchdown record. And Brett Favre is just the guy you might not have heard about at the EPSYs… but who probably gave THE most entertaining performance of the night.
As the New York Post reported, “Before taking a seat inside Nokia Theater in LA, Favre presented the award for “Best NFL Player” to Aaron Rodgers. But instead of handing the trophy over gracefully to his Packers quarterback successor — with whom he has maintained a somewhat tense relationship — Favre nearly wipes out while trying to collect the prize from the ground.”
Check it out:
But when ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner takes the stage, it gets so much better. While the audience cheers for Jenner, Favre clearly just doesn’t know what to make of the situation. It’s a genuine, but perfectly awkward reaction from a real man.
This is a backwoods, country-boy, Wrangler wearing, tobacco-chewing football legend… he doesn’t even have a chip in his brain to process this carnival ride.
