Before Ricky Gervais made waves by roasting the Golden Globes, Norm MacDonald absolutely lit up the sports world at the 1998 ESPYS. There are innumerable great blasts on Jerry Jones, the XFL, Charles Barkley, The WNBA, MJ, and the unintentional comedy of repeatedly showing Senator Bill Bradley who had to wonder who talked him into showing up. Enjoy:
Great retrospective on Charles Woodson’s goatee and maybe the most smoothly delivered OJ joke ever. Thank you Norm, thank you.
Is it too soon for a #NormMacdonald2011ESPYs campaign?
