Just in time to celebrate Germany’s win over Argentina in the World Cup, one of the biggest events in sports, the 2014 ESPY Awards aired Wednesday night, honoring sports, teams, and athletes alike. Rapper Drake hosted the event, combining musical performances with quick humor to keep the audience entertained. Winners at the award show included The Seattle Seahawks, who took home the award for Best Team, UFC fighter, Rhonda Rousey, who took home the award for Best Female Athlete, and Oklahoma City Thunder player, Kevin Durant, who took home the award for Best Male Athlete. Slopestyle Snowboarders Jamie Anderson and Sage Kotsenburg took home the awards for Best Female and Male Olympic Athletes, and the U.S. win over Ghana in the World Cup won the award for the Best Sports Moment. To check out a full list of winners, head over to ESPN. Speaking of winners, it was announced this week that the first ever female firefighter will appear in New York City Fire Department’s infamous Calendar of Heroes. Danae Mines, an 11-year veteran of FDNY, will appear in the calendar as Miss March next to her male coworkers, representing females every where and proving that girls can do anything boys can do. After seeing an announcement for an open casting call for the calendar, Mines decided to show up the men and audition, refusing to let anyone tell her she “couldn’t do what [she] wanted to do.” Her determination paid off, and despite being the only female in the calendar, she sure stands for the 40 other female firefighters in New York. You go girl!

Just after announcing that Disney’s Frozen would be coming to their show, “Once Upon A Time,” ABC seems to be looking to add a more permanent spot for the new characters, teasing fans with a possible Frozen spin-off of the show. ABC’s first attempt at a “Once Upon A Time” spin-off, “Once Upon A Time in Wonderland,” failed last season, but it seems that a Frozen spin-off may be a bit more appealing to fans. ABC president Paul Lee says the plans for a Frozen spin-off aren’t immediate, but he knows that producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis are extremely inventive, and may have something up their sleeves for the future. We can’t wait to see what happens.
