ESPN Anchor Stuart Scott has Passed Away

RIP: Stuart Scott

Stuart Scott, a longtime anchor at ESPN, died Sunday morning. He was just 49-years-old.

Scott was engaged in a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer.

Throughout his battle, Scott was very open, very honest, and incredibly inspiring.

I won’t even pretend that I can capture his heartfelt honesty. Instead, I’ll urge you to watch his speech from last July’s ESPYs as he accepts the Jimmy V Perseverance Award.

I’m at a loss for words, so rather than ramble on, I’ll simply say that his impact on sports journalism is immeasurable and we’ve lost one of the greats today.

Rest in peace.
