During a great sports weekend ESPN broke awful news this morning, that longtime host and SportsCenter anchor Stuart Scott had passed away at the age of 49 after a long battle with cancer. Stuart Scott had kept his cancer battle quiet, but word had spread over the past few weeks that he had taken a turn for the worse, and he lost that battle this morning. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this time, we will remember Stuart Scott as a sports broadcasting legend, who made watching sports more entertaining with his catch phrases and charisma. Rest In Peace, Stuart Scott, you will be missed.
I grew up on those amazing Stuart Scott and Rich Eisen’s SportsCenters, here is his colleague, friend and longtime broadcast partner Rich Eisen’s emotional tribute to Stuart Scott:
