Norm MacDonald’s Legendary ESPY Appearance

One of my friends is always talking about Norm MacDonald’s speech at the 1998 ESPY Awards, and yesterday Deadspin happened across it and put it up. I’d never seen it, but it’s really funny — MacDonald turned the entire set into a roast, and probably pissed a lot of these sports figures off (you don’t have to know who any of them are to get it!):

Just another entry in the “Norm MacDonald is the most underrated comedian of all time” canon. (Not that he’s not rated, he’s just underrated.) (Thanks for the tip, Andrew!)
