JAKE GETS EVEN SPORTIER

He's getting ready to mingle with real life athletes. Read the whole article HERE.

"Presenters already confirmed to attend The 2006 ESPYS include Will Ferrell, Dwyane Wade, Mariah Carey, LeBron James, Ben Stiller, Ashley Judd, Greg Kinnear, Venus Williams, Jimmy Kimmel, Kiefer Sutherland, Terrell Owens, Carmen Electra and Jake Gyllenhaal."

I'm not even going to pretend I know what the ESPY's are. Thanks for finding this, miffed!

I think that article says when they're going to broadcast, too. No idea what award Jake is presenting but hey....I don't even care, as long as we get to see him!

You can check out the 2006 ESPYs here.

Jake seems a good fit for presenting at the ESPYs - and, heck, any chance to see him on TV is good, right?!

Did you know that Jake is rumored to be in contention for the possible Joker role in the Batman Sequel?

So I've googled..and the ESPYs are:

Mr Gyllenhaal is serious about sports I see.Maybe he gives up acting and joins a sport..what could it be?maybe..chess?

Prophecy Girl said...

I guess this means I'm going to be watching ESPN for the first time in my life. Anything for Jake! Damn, miffed. You're a Gyllenhaal news machine! Good research. :)

Did they mention a broadcast date?

holly said...

Broadcast date:

July 16. 9pm

cina said...

I guess I'm going to have to rely on IHJ for this... I highly doubt it will be broadcasted on any channel here on my side of the world. Btw I've never heard of the SEPYs!

cina said...

ESPY's of course....

The Bearded Lady said...

ESPN is a sports cable network ...what ESPY stands for I guess would need some more research...I rarely tune in to it. I have heard of the awards tho.

winterbird said...

Isn't that ESPN's "sportmen of the year" or something similiar? think Jake also said he's a big fan of Lance Armstrong as well, that explains the bike gear...

The Bearded Lady said...

All those hot sweaty men chasing after their balls doesn't interest me...when my dog does it tho I'm impressed!...Really, Miss Bearded Lady would much perfer to watch the Knitting News Network or KNN...new strides in synthetic yarns are comming at a rapid pace.

Simon Agent 002 said...

ESPY...it's not the E spy awards?...I think we should be nominated?...Do we not have the best spys?....

holly said...

Oh man.

Do we think it just a coincidence that Jake is presenting and one of the categories (not saying that Jake is presenting in THIS category) is Best Sports Movie...where one of the nominees is "Glory Road".

Oy.

Jordan said...

Espys are like the Oscars of the sports world with a little MTV awards type humor.

msdonniedarko said...

its funny that all of us girls in here are gonna watch it just because of jake! i think thats great

cina said...

LOL Simon!! You're damn right.

The Bearded Lady said...

Well I see here there will be a conflict with the schedules.... July 16 9pm is the same exact time of the World Wide Knitting Championships...oh dear,..is it watch Jake give one ESPY, or see team Italy?...oh those Italians are soo hot this year! there hands fly like they are on Ritalin!....no no ,they are all drug tested prior to entry .....just joking... Will Jake be shaving for these awards?....is he gonna tuck in he shirt?... Eva won't be there right?

Hey, Gretchen Blieler the snowboarder is up fro best female athelete! Hee!!!

Anonymous said...

I don't find that funny for some reason?

Anonymous said...

holly,

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!

Since Jake is a fan and admirer of Lance Armstrong and he is hosting as well as being nominated for athelete of the yar, I wouldn't be surprised if Jake presented that award if he won.

GRETCHEN BLIERER, THE SNOWBOARDER!!!

nice anonymous said...

I want Jake to appear on network TV, not on these cable stations. Preferably, he would be the host of "Saturday Night Live" or something like that.

Anonymous said...

11:20 I agree. The Espy's, meh. The MTV Awards were fine but i miss Jakey doing the rounds on talk shows promoting his movies. And it looks like it will be an eternity until Zodiac opens. And he will be on screen for exactly 2 seconds presenting.Sigh. There is a lot of partying and stuff afterwards and there are usually pictures and stuff and of course the arrivals, but lately Jake has been skipping arrivals and the after party stuff. He was no where to be seen at the MTV awards party, although there were some backstage photos. Why do I think that Jake really doesn't like doing stuff like that anymore.

Anonymous said...

The show tapes on 7/12 and airs on the 16th so we probably will know all the winners before it airs like the MTV awards.

Anonymous said...

anonymous 10:54, i agree. I don't care for this Gretchen person being too close to our Jakey. It must be snowing SOMEWHERE! South America, maybe? Bye, Bye, Gretchen!

The Bearded Lady said...

Okay, let's examine the flow chart for a moment here.....We worship Jacob Gyllenhall.... He worships Lance Armstrong...Therefore Lance Armstrong is our Leader...it's pure logic....And I just finished setting the darn shine up!....Where am I going to find a Lance doll at this time of day...Geezz

nica ^_^ said...

the bearded lady LOOL your so funny, i dont have half of your witt (know what i mean?) but i try, i do try.. lool

The Bearded Lady said...

Oh, you make my wrinkly skin blush...like a school girl

dani said...

I remember that silly story about this Gretchen person moving to Los Angeles to be near Jake. But I guess I must have missed something before that. How is he suppose to know her? And I don't recall ever seeing one picture of them together let alone enough to mean they couldn't stand to live so far apart. In any case, not too thrilled she will be at the ESPY awards because the tabloids might try to make something out of it. Thanks
miffed for giving us the news. I'm not a big sports fan but I know enough to know who's who. And of course the main attraction will be Jake.

The Bearded Lady said...

I think they were snowbound together at the artic circle....Jake fashioned a igloo from snow and saved her life....they spent three weeks together waiting for the blizzard to pass...I guess that's a bonding experience...

I was walking through the city yesterday and I saw trailers on the street around this place called the 40/40 club. I thought maybe they were filming a movie but there was a sign on the door mentioning the ESPY's and that there was no photography allowed.
Maybe that's for an aftershow thing?
I did get to see Peter on Sunday but alas, Jake was not with him at the time. Damn*

Smurfeyshmoo said...

Am I the only one who thinks Jake on ESPN is incredibly hot? I love me some athletic Jake. And I actually was going to watch the ESPYs anyway...but now I got Jakey, too? My heart may give out.

squallcloud said...

So yeah, now I'm gonna have to tape these fucking things for a glimpse of the Gyllenhaal. I don't watch any sport whatsoever so Jake better be just as ... nay twice as adorable as he was on MTV movie awards to make it worth my DVR's while.

How does one erase? I put this on the lovely poetry entry and it seems wrong and crass to leave it there.

The Bearded Lady said...

@Squallcloud, sorry to tell you but you can't erase unless you register with blogger...it's a feature that comes with signing up and getting an offcial user name....it really not hard to sign up, and if you don't want a personal blog you just ignore that part. It will still sign you in....then if you get really into it you can add a picture (avatar) to your name but that's optional too.

britpopbaby said...

I wonder if Jake will wear his tight lycra cycling outfit to this event?

@ ripley...

The ESPYs are taking place in the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Seems I am the only one who picked up on the Glory Road reference, holly ... crossing my fingers.

I have no interest whatsoever in sports. Except in watching Jake doing activities related to sports. Any activity that makes his muscles & veins bulge & his skin take on a nice sweaty sheen would be fine with me. ;-) Anything that directly results in enhancement of Jake's appearance is great. Particularly if, during the heat & humidity of summer, such exertions lead Jake to pull his shirt up over his head & then drop it onto the ground, just temporarily, for purposes of ventilation -- well, that's fine, Jake, you go right ahead. But this awards show sounds like something he'll have to dress up for & keep his shirt on. (That's fine, I'll take him anyway I can get him.) Anyway, it's a good move. Jake's visibility before young males -- basically, the ESPN audience, no? -- could use a little bolstering, to my way of thinking.

Frank Sinatra said...

This "Crispy" award...what the hell is it?.... Just what the world's been lacking. Yet another tedious awards show.... How hard up must you actually be to watch these things?

nice anonymous said...

How many times thus far during 2006 has Jake G. gone to the Kodak Theatre to attend an awards show, as either presenter or recipient? To him, that place must feel like the gymnasium where all the assemblies are held when you're getting through high school.

Frank Sinatra said...

Look call me old fashion, but that disney-que Kodak joint... it's like bad karma. Move'm back to the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion where they belong. Turn that whole Kodak theater area into the amusement park it truly is.
