ESPY nominees play first

Hefner plays host for honorees

Hugh Hefner‘s Playboy Mansion got a little bit ESPY Tuesday, as a slew of pro athletes turned up to pre-party before Wednesday’s ESPY Awards.

Fete was hosted by Male Tennis Player of the Year nominee Andy Roddick, who was caught up in a beer-chugging contest shortly before sunset. Live boxing matches televised by ESPN were shot in the outdoor ring as a crowd littered with bunnies in boxing attire watched ringside.

ESPY nominees included Peyton Manning, Donovan McNabb and tennis pro Maria Sharapova.
