Drake hosted the 2014 ESPY Awards on Wednesday night and he did pretty well all things considered. The opening monologue was a little shaky and got off to a rough start but when he started doing some skits things picked up for Drake.
Arguably the best part of the night for him was when Drake started singing, performing a song called “Honorable Mention” and “Side Pieces.” Basically it was joke telling in a medium that Drake was more comfortable in, music. It went over so well it made you wonder why he didn’t do his opening monologue like that.
In the song “Honorable Mentions” he honors those who come up short and routinely finish in second place, the “Dan Marinos” of the world Drake said. During this song he singled out San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He didn’t diss Kaepernick saying he like him flexing, and that it wasn’t his fault that Michael Crabtree can’t catch.
Seems like an odd comment to make considering Crabtree’s reinvigorated the 49ers’ passing offense in 2013 when he returned from injury. Drake is probably referring to the famous play in the Super Bowl when Crabtree was just out of reach of a game-winning touchdown pass or the final play of the NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks when Richard Sherman tipped away a pass.
