OK, vacation is almost over. (sigh) Before the family and myself embark for home today, I wanted to point out that Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald are up for multiple ESPY awards. That show will take place July 15 (wonder if the bosses will let me go cover it? ...) and be televised on ESPN July 19. Anyway, both players are up for the "Best NFL Player" award. Fitz is also up for the "Best Record Breaking Performance" award, after his stunning playoff run (and this category goes across sports. It's not just football). Warner won Best Breakthrough Athlete and Best NFL Player at the 2000 ESPYs, and, not surprisingly, a Cardinal has never won an ESPY.
In the record-breaking category, Fitz is up against Olympians Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps, along with Lakers head coach Phil Jackson. In the best NFL player category, the other possibilities are James Harrison, Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson. Who wins? Well, it's a popular vote. So you can go here to vote for Kurt and Fitz. Voting lasts through July 11.
In the meantime, I'll catch up to everyone on Monday, when it's time to go back to work.
