Okay, so this post is more than likely going to only target our male audience, unless there are females out there who are like me, dedicated to fashion AND sports. It’s hard to find in a woman, but if this pertains to you, you, my friend, are a well-rounded, wholesome individual. Today I’m going to give a full overview of what took place at the ESPY Award Show last Wednesday night.
