Jon Hamm Will Host the ESPYs

 Actor Jon Hamm attends The Paley Center For Media Presents: "Mad Men" Season 5 at The Paley Center for Media on April 23, 2013 in New York City.

Jon Hamm will host the ESPYs this summer, ESPN announced today. Even among meaningless awards, ESPYs are ultra-meaningless — sports has its own system of awards known as winning — but the ceremony is occasionally tolerable, if only for all of the athletes attempting to look mildly surprised despite not being surprised at all. Hmmm, let's see: Jon Hamm is funny, he seems like a good sport, he's not totally unfortunate-looking, ladies like him, fellas like him ... maybe it's time to just declare Jon Hamm the host of everything.
