Cancer claims another victim. Stuart Scott, anchor of SportsCenter, died Sunday morning after a seven year battle with cancer.
Scott’s most famous catchphrases — “Booyah!” and “As cool as the other side of the pillow” – are part of our culture today.
ESPN and everyone in the sports world have lost a true friend and a uniquely inspirational figure in Stuart Scott,” ESPN president John Skipper said in a statement. “Who engages in mixed martial arts training in the midst of chemotherapy treatments? Who leaves a hospital procedure to return to the set? His energetic and unwavering devotion to his family and to his work while fighting the battle of his life left us in awe, and he leaves a void that can never be replaced.”
