Washington Redskins players and fans may be the only group tight about rapper Drake's opening monologue on the 2014 ESPYS that aired on Wed., July 16. Not everybody can handle the truth, but the rest of his monologue was a hysterical hit.

These were the top six best moments of Drake at the ESPYS.

6. Skylar Diggins kisses Drake: Normally this obsession with the WNBA player would be all kinds of awkward, but the mouthwash and chapstick part of this skit made it bearable to watch.

5. Fashion Police skepticism: How Drake managed to get away with calling somebody else's fashion choices terrible even though he has a collection of horrendous sweaters is anybody's guess. But he's Drake so he'd still woo a woman with a Cosby sweater on. And Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook even grinned when he heard the punchline.

4. ESPN's Body Issues cover: Drake couldn't keep a straight face looking at Texas Rangers' Prince Semien Fielder on the cover of ESPN magazine, but he was even funnier when he clicked into the camera and shamed rapper Rick Ross for starting this movement.

3. Richard Sherman vs Whole Foods: In Drake's words, "Richard Sherman pissed off more white people this year than a crowded parking lot at Whole Foods. You know they hate when they can't get their almond milk." (Confession: This vegetarian's reaction is the same.)

2. Blake & Drake: The Instagram photo of Drake and Chris Brown was a trending topic for days, but to see them in action during the Drake & Blake skit was even better. "YOLO mother-----" Click here to see the video.

1. Double Lance Cam: Lance Stephenson was a good enough sport to not only let Drake blow in his ear the same way he did to former Miami Heats championship player Lebron James, but he double teamed a second blow for Indiana Pacers' forward Paul George.
