Unstoppable Charm Factory Jon Hamm Seduces Even The Most Resistant Crowd With His Fantastic ESPYS Opener

By Joanna Robinson | Videos | July 18, 2013 | Comments ()

It’s well-established that I don’t do sports. I really don’t. But even I enjoyed the hell out of Jon Hamm’s bashfully charming opening monologue at the ESPYS tonight. Armed with an arsenal of corny jokes and nursing what seems to be a shot voice, Hamm grinned his way into our hearts. Full marks for making fun of Ryan Lochte. Points deducted for taking it easy on Ray Lewis. Then again. Wouldn’t you?

P.S. VĂ¡monos, Gigantes. Stay classy, LA.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • Eoin Daly

    Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Neil Patrick Harris and Jon Hamm to host every award show.

  • Dave Dorris

    Nope. Sorry, but when you have to fall back on the easy Detroit bashing jokes you lose points. It's OK Jon. You don't have to come back.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Johnny Football was the LEAST douchiest guy there? Oh pro sports you slay me.

  • APOCooter

    What's the over/under on the amount of people in that audience that have no sense of humor? I'd set it around 50%.

  • e jerry powell

    Easily 70%.

  • Wigamer

    It's well-established that I don't do Jon Hamm. I really don't. But I would enjoy the hell out of it.

  • SugarSmak

    Were there jokes? Was there talking? God, that is one dazzling man.

  • I no longer pay attention to pro sports, but I so love that the Lakers are so low. Hamm did a nice job, but I'm convinced there's now a troupe of writers that go from award show to award show penning the opening, striking that balance between fawning self-congratulation to the crowd to the friendly jibe that just might be on the edge of discomfort. They're like Golliards.

  • e jerry powell

    Usually Bruce Vilanch, in fact.

  • kirbyjay

    I just don't feel the HammLove anymore ever since he got all pissy about the CockBlog. Throw some undies on or grow a sense of humor.

  • koko temur

    I couldnt agree more. Still pretty and still talented.
    buuuuut; pissy = no sploosh.

  • yocean

    Look at all those humore-less jocks.

  • He just haaad to remind us of that Leafs/Bruins game. A loss so stunning that even I, a Torontonian who long ago gave up caring about the Leafs, nearly broke down crying in disbelief.

  • lowercase_see

    The team that knocked out the Pens vs Marian Hossa? Why couldn't they both lose.

  • You got a little revenge there when the Blackhawks beat the Bruins for the Cup then, didn't you? I wanted the Ravens to win the Super Bowl for the same reason. Not because I'm a Ravens fan, but because the 'Niners beat the Packers in the playoffs.

  • Wake me up when your city hasn't won the cup in 46 years.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I have a theory that if the Leafs ever win then Down Goes Brown will cease to be funny. Nobody wants that.
