INTERCEPTED: 2009 ESPY AWARDS!

The Oscar & Grammay Awards for athletes are here! The 2009 ESPY Awards are set to air Sunday, July 19th at 9pm, with Samuel L. Jackson as host (Am I the only one who'll miss Justin Timberland?) This years awards have an overwhelming 37 categories with Michael Phelps leading the way with 4 nominations of his own. (Guess weed-gate is the thing of the past)
