Tracy Morgan, a fan of Lifelong Giants, host of Wednesday's ESPY, talked a lot about her beloved football team at the awards ceremony.
Many people were not happy with Morgan's performance at the presentation of his film, criticizing his first comedy program, but the few bursts of laughter he had were at the expense of the Giants.
Morgan preceded his first shot of the night by explaining that he does not like team changes.
"Anthony Davis went to the Lakers. Kawhi went to the Clippers', said Morgan. "And Odell Beckham Jr. went from my giants to the Browns. And Odell is sitting there as if it was as if it was a good idea. The only reason people leave New York for Cleveland is because they protect their witnesses. "
Beckham, who was traded in March against the Browns' first and third round picks and safety Jabrill Peppers, barely reacted with a smirk and some pointing to the camera while sporting his orange Browns watch. As Morgan finished the joke, the cameras surprised Odell by saying, "I was lucky.
Later in the evening, Morgan offered another opportunity to compete against the Giants after finding spotlight Saquon Barkley, winner of the ESPY Award for Best Breakthrough Athlete, in the front row.
"I heard that you could lift 600 pounds," Morgan said. "It's good because you're going to have to carry the giants this year."
The second year half took the joke, laughing despite the veracity of this statement with the disappearance of Beckham. Barkley was brilliant despite the Giants' 5-11 record last season, winning the offensive rookie of the year with 1,307 rushing yards, 11 touchdowns and 721 receiving yards.
And despite Morgan's efforts to make the Giants' strike line, Barkley's message was positive.
"I want to congratulate all the candidates. I respect you guys. You are all excellent athletes, "said Barkley in his thank you speech. "I want to thank the organization of the Giants for writing and taking risks. I would not be able to play the sport I love without you, guys too. "
