Along with Hollywood celebs, they were strutting and sweating down a blistering red carpet for the 18th annual /*ESPY Awards*/.
"This is amazing," said eight-time Olympic medalist /*Apolo Ohno*/. "I was telling someone earlier, you know, this is our /*Oscar*/ night. You see a lot of great athletes come to one place at one time."
This year's host was comedian /*Seth Meyers*/.
"The /*Los Angeles Lakers*/ will now try a three-peat and I have it on good authority that if they do, (Lakers player) Paul Gasol is going to shave his neck beard," Meyers joked. "What's with that thing? Is he afraid we're all going to forget he's European?"
The Lakers were up for best team of the year, but that award went to the /*New Orleans Saints*/.
