We lost a beloved brother today. And a loss, in life and in sports, is a hard thing to get over, especially and more importantly, in life.
We lost a great teammate and a great team player today. ESPN was better with him, and ESPN will be at a loss without him. Many of us never met him, but we felt like we knew him. That’s how powerful of a presence he was. We fully knew his chuckle on the set, but did not fully know of his trouble with cancer off the set.
We lost a sports specialist today. Stuart Scott was not just good, he was the best of the best. Rich Eisen said that he was a “groundbreaking” sportscaster in the world of sports. If you love sports, then you love SportsCenter©, and if you love SportsCenter©, then you loved Stuart Scott.
Farewell, dear brother.
