Saturday Night Live‘s Seth Meyers will host the 18th annual ESPY Awards, which will be broadcast live for the first time since 2003. Meyers co-presented last year, with “Brett Favre,” but he’ll be the master of ceremonies of this year’s event, scheduled for July 14. Meyers is a passionate sports fan, judging by his frequent guest stints on ESPN’s popular podcast, The B.S. Report, but in my mind, he clinched the right to host the show with one classic “Weekend Update” zinger: “Last Friday, Tiger Woods hit a tree, and a bunch of ladies fell out.”

Does Meyers make you want to watch the show, especially since it will be live television?
