Race auto driver Danica Patrick not only hosted the 2018 ESPY Awards, she also got to show off her acting chops in an "I, Tonya" parody.

"I'm the biggest Packers fan", Patrick revealed Monday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live". It also received mixed reviews on social media. She became the first snowboarder to ever win an overall category by winning Best Female Athlete, and also took home the trophies for Best U.S. Female Olympian and Best Female Action Sports Athlete.

Patrick said on "The Jenny McCarthy Show" in May that she first met Rodgers at the 2012 ESPY Awards, where they exchanged e-mail addresses.

Patrick fared better in a taped spoof of the movie "I, Tonya", renamed "I, Danica". I am excited to be able to help celebrate, laugh and cry about the past year in sports with everyone.
