R.I.P. Stuart Scott, ESPN Anchor who died today, who's continuously battled with cancer for quite a few years now.

 

Inspiring individual, who never let his battle keep him down. He was charismatic and full of life, his broadcasts were always a bit different from the rest. It is a sad day in the sports world, but I think he'd prefer if remember the life he brought to the rest of the world, other than the tragedy which is cancer. Honestly this terrifies me as I wait for my mother to get her test results back to determine wether or not her skin cysts are malignant/cancerous.

 

 

share your condolences here.

Although he was the inspiration for a whole generation of laid back slang speaking and annoyingly casual sports reporters, he was one of the few guys at ESPN who didn't sh*t on hockey.

 

Maybe I hate the guys who he inspired because they don't treat hockey the same way he did, which was with professionalism, instead of just rattling off the score sheet and butchering every name along the way. sh*t, I hate ESPN. But I digress. He will be missed.

I thought they was just doing a repeat of his story on ESPN but then I heard him say, "if losing the battle is passing away... then I have lost" or something similar and then the 1965-2015 screen came on. Was very shocked, I figured he beaten cancer's ass but no, unfortunately. :(

 

 

Rip mr. Scott

yeah your beef should be with ESPN and the Disney corporation, not Mr Scott.

their hands are tied when it comes to what kind of exposure to give different sports.

 

the networks always go Football, Baseball, Basketball, Hockey in order of "importance."

sometimes Golf even takes precedent over Hockey which drives me crazy. but it's a network thing, not an anchor thing.

 

this is super sh/tty news. I really thought he would hang in there longer.

this sucks :( RIP Stu...

I don't blame him one bit, like I said, he was one of the only people at ESPN that didn't treat hockey like it's the equivalent to bowling (no offense bowlers).

 

ESPN notoriously hates hockey. When the 2011-12 lockout ended, they had a round table of five people, and none of them even liked hockey, and basically sh*t on the sport for five minutes, all the while claiming, "The NHL will never recover from this lockout." and "Their ratings are worse than the NBA." (which isn't true). I think they were "The Sports Reporters", but you'll never find video of that segment, because it's seemed to have disappeared. I suspect even the ESPN execs thought it was a sh*tty thing to do. But I digress, once again.

I Love Anna Kournikova

He was my favorite sports center anchor back in the day. He made it fun.

 

This one is a sad one. RIP Stuart.

 

BooYah.

Yep.

 

I had ESPN on during and after the NFL games yesterday. Everything was about Stu, the NFL games and some basketball games. Didn't see anything about the hockey games that went on but that's what happens when it has 5% of people saying it's their favorite sport http://www.harrisinteractive.com/NewsRoom/HarrisPolls/tabid/447/mid/1508/articleId/1365/ctl/ReadCustom%20Default/Default.aspx

 

 

Stu will always be as cool as the other side of the pillow. Which is always nice to flip your pillow and feel the coolness from the otherside.

Didn't really watch his sports casts, but I watched the ESPYs last summer, and that hit me really hard. RIP

The way ESPN glorifies College Football is beyond reason and every year I get sick of it. I also agree, ever since NHL games stopped appearing on ESPN, they really stopped caring.

 

Either way, I was very shocked when I woke up and saw this. He was an inspiration and he looked very underweight at the ESPYs but I expected him to get back on ESPN someday like what Craig Sager is planning to do with TNT down the road. Huge loss.
