Good Sports


Marchon scored the winning touchdown, walk off homerun, goal and basket combined as this year’s official eyewear sponsor for ESPN’s 2007 ESPY Awards held in Hollywood. Some of America’s most prominent and beloved sports heroes were fitted with frame styles. Among them were Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and head coach Tony Dungy. Peyton, in Nike Nix, took home the prize for Best Championship Performance, while Dungy, sporting Sean Jean style SJ107S, won the Best Coach Award. Others included Olympic gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps in Nautica Destination; wide receiver Terrell Owens in Nike with Flexon style 4125; jockey Calvin Borel, who rode this year’s Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, in Nike with Flexon style 4124; and Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor in Calvin Klein 849S.
