Stuart Scott, one of ESPN’s most well-known and beloved sports anchors, died Sunday morning at the age of 49.
Scott had publicly battled cancer since first being diagnosed in 2007.
After initially joining ESPN in 1993, Scott became one of the network’s biggest stars for his memorable catchphrases like “boo-yah” and “as cool as the other side of the pillow,” as well as the unique way he could mesh with any other SportsCenter personality they paired him with.
Although Stuart worked well with just about everyone at the "Worldwide Leader In Sports", there was one man with whom he had incomparable chemistry: Rich Eisen. The two began working the 1:00 a.m. SportsCenter together and somehow turned it into must-watch television.
On Sunday, after learning of his good friend’s death, Eisen delivered this impromptu eulogy in the middle of an NFL preview show:
Scott is survived by his 19-year-old and 15-year-old daughters, his girlfriend, his parents and his three siblings.
