The ESPYS for sports are what the Oscars are for the movie industry. A woke and virtue-signing segment on TV where progressive values and wealthy celebrities are celebrated.
There were moments when I was completely unaware of my surroundings, but three particular moments are particularly nauseating.
Moment #1: Stephen Curry mocks his children while onstage
The Golden State Warriors point guard was being braggadocious about his objectively great season in which he broke the NBA’s all-time three point makes record, defeated the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals and got series MVP. But after his self-glorifying monologue, Curry took the time on national television to joke that he didn’t enjoy being around his kids during the offseason.
Curry intended for it to be a funny joke. However, this was in terrible taste with Curry’s daughters present. Being a pro-athlete can be hard, especially when it is at Curry’s level. However, to claim that three weeks in offseason is a hassle to be a father and celebrate birthdays with your daughters shows you may be less self-aware than you think. To be a loving, present dad is one of the greatest things you can do for your family. It’s not a bad thing to laugh about being a burden on your girls.
Moment #2: Eileen Gu wins the “Best Athlete, Women’s Action Sports” Award
Gu is simply a globalist. Although she was born in America, Gu skied in China at the Winter Olympics. Citizenship. Gu talked openly about her use of sport in pushing globalism during a TIME 100 Summit interview.
“I think that’s this beautiful example of globalism and of the capacity that we can use skiing and we can use sport and we can use winter sport to connect people,” she said. “Salt Lake specifically wants to become a global destination for athletes everywhere to come train there and they want to incorporate 15 new countries into the Winter Olympics. I think that’s something that’s really beautiful and I’ve always stood for that and so I’m really honored to be a part of the whole thing.”
The ESPYS made a statement when she was presented with her award. They were affirming her commitment to spreading globalism (which is another term for worldwide communism).
Oh, and Gu also took time to say that equality in women’s sports was something that needed to continuously fought for, despite the fact that no one knows what that looks like or means because the definition of female is constantly changing (according to progressives at least).
Moment #3: Seven female athletes whine about “equality” problem
Seven prominent female athletes, including everyone’s favorite anti-American lesbian Megan Rapinoe, called for women to be respected and treated equally in sports.
While all of that is a load of nonsense and a bunch of woke word salad, Rapinoe’s words are the most confusing and laughably nonsensible.
“It’s exhausting trying to convince the world of our ability…of our humanity…of our worth. We’re not your charity, we’re not your measuring stick for whatever level of masculinity, and we are certainly not the shield you use to deny college athletes equal pay, or trans kids equal rights.”

How does this even translate?
There is no doubt that women are talented athletes and that they have the potential to be great human beings. Just because you may feel that’s the case, that doesn’t mean it’s true. Also, if you’re for women having equal rights in sports, then why are you in the same breath advocating for the rights of trans children, who so often ruin women’s sports when they are given “equality?”
Choose a side, and keep it Rapinoe. Better yet, don’t say anything at all.
