Hey there, sports fans! Confession: I’ve always wanted to say that. At any rate, I do have actual sports-related news. As I’m sure you’re aware, the ESPYS are next Wednesday. If you haven’t voted yet, hit that link and do it now, I’ll wait.
You back? Good. Now, since you’re such a huge sports fan, and your weekends are empty and sad without football (25 days til preseason people, we can get through this) you probably want to get even more involved. You want to be a bigger part of the sports Oscars. I know, I understand. I’m with you. In spirit, I’m not actually with you. That would be weird and creepy. I swear I’m getting to the point.
What if I told you that you could be a part of the ESPYS this year? Well with The ESPYS Experience, you can. If you’re going to be in or around Downtown LA next Wednesday, July 16, from noon to 6:00pm, you can be a part of the ESPYS. Or, you know, if you want to drive to Downtown LA at that time. That would work to, you don’t have to already be there. So wherever you are in SoCal, get yourself to the Nokia Plaza at LA Live.
The ESPYS Experience is FREE and open to the public. Bring the kids for a fun afternoon of events, activities, and performances.

Oh, did you catch that “Surprise Superstar” performance? Yeah, don’t ask, because they won’t tell me who it is. Evidently I can’t be trusted not to blab. These are smart people.
Not in SoCal? In SoCal but busy Wednesday afternoon? Wow, sad for you.
I kid, I kid. No matter where you are, you can live tweet along with @ESPYS and #ESPYS. The best news? The ESPYS are LIVE for everyone, even the West Coast! So really, there’s no excuse not to live tweet. Come on, all the cool kids are doing it! (Disclaimer: By “cool kids”, I mean me. So do with that what you will.) See you on Wednesday!
