Default Stuart Scott 1965-2015

Famed sports broadcaster Stuart Scott has passed on after a battle with cancer.

Many found his broadcasting style a bit trite and cliche dependent (tho I personally didnt mind it and loved it as a kid), but by all accounts he was a really good guy to be around and a great father.


Very, very sad news. 49 is way too young.


Rest in peace, Stu.

Dude was a big part of my childhood. Easily my favorite anchor growing up.

Shed some tears this morning, he was quite the guy.

RIP

Who's Number 1? You are Stuart.

"When you die, it does not mean you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by HOW you live, WHY you live & the manner in which you live." - Stuart Scott.


Great words. RIP man.

Powerful inspirational words. I remember watching that speech live.. Speeches like that truly show how powerful the human spirit is.

Rest in peace, Mr Scott.
