Peyton Manning has been out of the spotlight for a while, but on Wednesday night the former Broncos quarterback jumped back into the limelight as host of the annual ESPY Awards.

Afterwards, Manning took a seat next to Von Miller in the crowd and asked him for his thoughts. In a sarcastic tone, he said actually telling the jokes, while painful, were the only orders he was given. Turning to him with a smile, she adds: "Did you win five Superbowls too?"

But Manning also poked fun at himself - quite often. The Golden State Warriors won the Best Team award. Watch Edelman's delivery of his joke in the video below.

Russell Westbrook, seated in the front row, had the best reaction.

Other categories tonight will include the Best Play, Best NBA Player, Best NFL Player, Best MLB Player, Best NHL Player, Best Driver, Best Upset, Best Record-Breaking Performance, and Best Breakthrough Athlete. For that reason alone it made perfect sense to have him host the award show. The ESPYS remind us there are greater challenges and achievements beyond the box scores and the championship games.

The zinger coupled with the unrelenting stone face response from Durant, set social media ablaze, spawning meme after meme. He iterated that no matter what one may believe, you don't turn down an invitation to play with the leader of the free world. The vibe was that he didn't enjoy the joke, but it's clear that everyone else in the building did. These major cities include Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham, and San Francisco.

No doubt we'll see some sharp looks from Michael Phelps, Russell Westrbook, Sidney Crosby and Kris Bryant, who are nominees in the Best Male Athlete category.

The 2017 ESPYs was a show that seamlessly danced the line between humor and touching moments. Denver went on to win the Super Bowl.

And despite the title, the jokes haven't finished - at least not for Manning.
