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.
