Derrick Salberg loses out on ESPY, then rips Tim Tebow
You remember Derrick Salberg? He’s the community college outfielder that made this incredible catch. Salberg was nominated for “Best Play” at the ESPYs but lost to Christian Watford whose buzzer-beater helped Indiana hand national champion Kentucky its first loss of the season.
Apparently Salberg was pretty salty about losing out on the ESPY, because he sent the following tweet after Tim Tebow won the very next ESPY for “Best Moment”:
God damnit..now I gotta listen to tebow talk

Don’t worry Salberg, you’re not alone.
UPDATE – As Jimmy Traina pointed out in Hot Clicks, Colts punter Pat McAfee wasn’t thrilled with Tebow either:
#PatsESPYsTwittaThon All right Tebow shut up already.
