Danica Patrick Roasts LeBron James, J.R. Smith In 2018 ESPYs Monologue

Danica Patrick and Aaron Rodgers arrive at the 2018 ESPYs, marking their official red carpet debut! The newly retired racecar driver was the first woman to host the annual show honoring the past year's best athletes and moments. In fact, his shocked look became a meme on social media.

Brady, a three-time nominee, will be up against first-time nominees Jose Altuve of the World Series champion Houston Astros, James Harden of the Houston Rockets and Alexander Ovechkin of the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals in male athlete nods announced Wednesday.

ESPY stands for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly, making the awards show more than just who caught the most passes or scored the most points, though they do take that into account.

During the late-night appearance, Patrick said she will "absolutely not" make fun of her beau, despite Kimmel's jokes.


Patrick fared better in a taped spoof of the movie "I, Tonya", renamed "I, Danica". Patrick said, listening to his advice.

"Danica learned to drive when she was nine, because that's when I got my fifth DUI", the mother character tells the camera.

Browns rookie Baker Mayfield won the award for the Best College Athlete. The former professional racer was so excited to host the 2018 ESPYS but her monologue bombed hard, as did her pre-taped "comedic" skits.
