Drew Brees just won an ESPY award for "Best Record-Breaking Performance." Congratulations to him!
Drew was up against Duke Men's Basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski, Golfer Lexi Thompson and Yankees Closer Mariano Rivera as nominees. But back in late June when nominations were announced, I called a Brees victory a slam dunk.
Brees was also up for "Best NFL Player" against Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski,Lions WR Calvin Johnson, Ravens LB Terrell Suggs and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.
Make the jump to see his acceptance speech.
