Norm Macdonald passed away Tuesday (Sept. 14) at 61. Pretty much everyone I know is bummed about it.

Macdonald fans will remember his famed opening monologue at the 1998 ESPY Awards, where he made fun of some pro athletes that just didn’t expect it. They didn’t care for it much, either. Watch the monologue below.

After that, producers didn’t seem to want a comedian to host the show again. It took them years to finally book another comedian!
