Tyra Banks in 1998. Videos below.
If you ever had any doubts about how big a sports fan Peyton Manning is, they were erased at last night's ESPY awards. PM was named Best NFL Player and honored for Best Record-Setting Performance, and in accepting the latter, he said receiving the bauble from Miami Dolphins legend Dan Marino and Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant topped the moment when he was given the Best College Player ESPY by supermodel Tyra Banks in 1998.
Who would you prefer to hand you a trophy -- Marino and Durant or Banks in her mid-twenties? To help you decide, we've juxtaposed a clip of last night's acceptance speech with 1998 footage of Banks issued in conjunction with that year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. Enjoy making the comparison below.
