The ESPYS, the annual awards show where ESPN recognizes the biggest names in the sports world as well as the jaw-dropping moments that had us screaming at our television screens took place last night in Los Angeles. With Tracy Morgan handling hosting duties for the 2019 edition of the ESPN owned awards show, it was another night full of memorable moments.

Before the awards were handed out, Morgan kicked things off with a monologue that was met with mixed reviews for the most part on Twitter. While using his comedic prowess to break down the year in sports, Morgan also found time to make light of his near-death experience after being involved in a deadly crash.

If you didn’t change the channel, you would have caught the most significant moment of the night. Fresh off from celebrating their World Cup victory with a ticker-tape parade in NYC, the USWNT arrived fashionably late to pick up their ESPY hardware. Orlando Pride forward, Alex Morgan took home Female Athlete of the Year honors joking with the crowd: “Sorry, but this is the second best trophy we won this week.” Her team was honored later that night winning Best Team beating out other notable franchises The Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, and Toronto Raptors. Drake was probably somewhere upset but based on the ladies winning on a global stage, it is understandable why they gave Team USA the ESPY.

Other winners include the Greek Freak, Giannis Antetokounmpo taking home Best Male Athlete, New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley winning Best Breakthrough Athlete, Bill Russell honored with the Arthur Ashe award and Rob Mendez, a football coach who was born with no legs and arms receiving this year’s Jimmy V Award.
