ESPY Awards 2014: The Fame and the Glory

The ESPY Awards 2014 took place yesterday at Nokia Theater, Los Angeles, California that went live on ESPN. Among the winners of the awards was an aged gentleman named Stuart Scott

He was in such a frail state that he was having difficulty standing on the stage. He remarked that when you are too tired to carry on someone else has to be handed the baton. His award was for perseverance. 

Then there was Michael Sam. He received an award for coming out of the closet as a gay. The Paralympic Josh Sweeney was handed an award for aiding veterans in overcoming their disabilities as far as sports were concerned. 

The Seahawks won one for being the best overall sports team. As for the host of the show it was none other than Drake. The number of extraordinary people present among the audience was proof of the fact that exceptional things can be done provided one puts one mind or body to it. 

Stuart Scott did the ESPN2 “The Deuce” once upon a time. He once asked a co-host whether he ought to keep things in low key. GQ magazine has awarded him with the accolade of being the gentleman who put the beat in sports news casting. 

The fact that Stu has fought a long and weary battle with cancer proves once and for all that he is a fighter and survivor of the highest order. 

As for real life fighters, the winner of an ESPY was none other than Ronda Rousey. She turned out to be the best overall female athlete. And she was one amongst many. Ronda has been a pugilist and provocateur since her days as a kid who carried a chip on her shoulder.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
