Danica Patrick Parodies 'I, Tonya' at ESPYS with 'Me, Danica'

Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick making their red carpet debut. A woman tweeted, "Am I the only one who thinks Danica Patrick is super awkward as host?"

A fake Vanity Fair review says "Me, Danica" is "as entertaining as it is inaccurate".

The two even appeared in a parody of I, Tonya called "Me, Danica", with Patrick playing the titular role and Rodgers as her boyfriend.

Actors, actresses and musicians might get most the awards shows, but the athletes are finally getting their night in the spotlight as well at the 26th annual ESPY Awards taking place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. Much of her opening monologue wasn't well received by the audience in the room or on Twitter.

While Patrick didn't receive glowing reviews for her delivery of the award show's monologue, plenty of people have been saying her sketch was spot on.

"I mean, who doesn't love LeBron James?", she said. One solid laugh came when she appeared in a Game of Thrones costume and said that the skit had to be cut for time, which the camera then panned to National Basketball Association legend Kareem Abdul Jabbar in the audience wearing GOT gear acting pissed off.

"We kept in touch a little bit, and there were some years we didn't talk to each other, and then some every now and again, but it wasn't until recently that we actually had phone numbers", the star said.

Browns rookie Baker Mayfield won the award for the Best College Athlete.
