When Perry was a kid, he dreamed of making a mark as a tennis pro and was good enough to be a nationally-ranked junior in his home country of Canada.
However, he says reality sunk in and he realized he had already reached the top of his game.
So Perry is flexing some different muscles as the host of the 13th Annual ESPY Awards this Sunday (Jul. 17) on ESPN and insists hes involved in all aspects of the show.
In fact, he jokes that hes looked at the seating chart and is worried that weve placed all the jockeys behind the basketball players.
Perry isnt revealing what hell do as host but admits he tends to act geeky when hes around his sports heroes and says hes especially excited about meeting Indianapolis Colts quarterback Payton Manning, tennis star Maria Sherapova and, he adds, of course, the jockeys.
