    I don't often watch TV award shows, but tonight we happened to land on the ESPYS when Kirstie Ennis was being awarded the Pat Tillman Award.
    Very touching presentation of her accomplishments and her speech.
    If you have a chance to watch a replay of this, you should.
    Her closing statement resonates:
    "...rest a moment less, endure a fraction more and try to make peace with whatever your pain may be,"

    *Now Lindsey Vonn is on stage with Gronk and Dwyane Wade, accepting achievement awards as retiring athletes.

    ** Mikaela Shiffrin was up for Best Female Athlete but Alex Morgan got it.
    Started her speech with,"Sorry but this is only the second best trophy we won this week."

    I heard something about this on the sports news this morning. The golfer Henderson from Canada got something too.

    Espys- if you had any doubt professional sports was just entertainment.
