The ESPY Awards are tonight in Los Angeles, and athletes and stars alike are already preparing for the big show.
As this writer has mentioned, the ski and snowboard community will be stocked full of representatives from our sports tonight, as several were nominated for awards with some even serving as presenters. Besides the honor of being recognized as a nominee or a presenter, there are some serious perks for those involved. ESPY parties are memorable affairs with venues such as The Playboy Mansion, as well as top Hollywood clubs. However, some of the perks are a bit more tangible, like the ESPY VIP Gift Bag given to nominees and presenters.
If you thought you were jealous of Lindsey Vonn’s downhill ski technique, Shaun White’s double mctwist 1260, or Bobby Brown’s switch double misty 1440, prepare to turn even more green with envy as you check out the goods these athletes will be receiving compliments of ESPN:
