As the first female host of the ESPY Awards, Danica Patrick did not disappoint. She roasted athletes for their mistakes, referenced the Kardashians, and even gave viewers an inside look at her relationship with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (well, sort of). In a hilarious skit and mock-movie titled Me, Danica, the 36-year-old race car driver and her boyfriend take on the plot of I, Tonya, with a blond wig and a serious mustache (respectively, of course).
“I’m the best driver my sport’s ever seen,” Danica says in the trailer. “I drove a double axle better than anyone else. But the friggin’ judges were always against me.” The best appearance has to be from Danica’s whiskey-bottle-toting mom, with a bird on her shoulder and an oxygen tank to her side.
Danica and Aaron exchange some sweet compliments and have a makeout session before the plot takes a dark turn to discuss “the friggin’ incident.” Honestly, all satire aside, this movie looks excellent and we’d totally watch it. Watch the clip above to see what happened when “pipe-wielding thugs” wreck Danica’s competition car, and then check out the most empowering moment from Wednesday night’s show: 141 survivors of Larry Nassar’s abuse receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
