Horrible news to wake up to, RIP.
"I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition (Christianity) one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology.
Wow, didn't expect something like this this morning, RIP
RIP, seemed like a good dude
Why couldn't it have been Stephen A Smith or Chris Berman instead?
Shitty. Wasn't a huge fan but this kind of thing sucks.
RIP. Made Sportscenter part of what it became. Cool as the other side of the pillow.
Stuart Scott was a Carolina guy. He had MC'd the midnight session at the beginning of basketball practice for several years, even when he was really too sick to be on top of his game. He didn't MC this year because he was just not able to.
R I P
Rest in R.I.P. Sweet prince
really crappy news, anyone know what kind of cancer it was
The eye issue was due to his cancer I thought. As a parent of two daughters the part that hits the most is how he'll never see what his girls will become. Aside from them going first it's probably the worst thing that you could think of as a parent. Whatever you thought of him as a Sportscenter character, definitely much respect for the fight he showed.

Super sucks, I grew up watching him (when Sportscenter was good!). Fucking cancer.
Currently playing HotS and Overwatch
I haven't watched Sportscenter in years but I really did enjoy him and Rich Eisen together. I'm more bummed than I thought I would be hearing this news.
As a cancer survivor myself this statement that he made is inspirational as fuck for me. It's so hard not to freak out just thinking about the fact you need to have chemo or radiation or *insert really shitty treatment here* but he took it a step further and conquered his fear and lived his life. I coped with my chemo side effects with medical marijuana. What'd he do to cope with his? He did MMA and high intensity training. That is hardcore. Walking up a flight of stairs is enough to make me need a nap. I respect that immensely and wish I had that in me also.ďI never ask what stage Iím in,Ē he said recently over lunch. ďI havenít wanted to know. It wonít change anything to me. All I know is that it would cause more worry and a higher degree of freakout. Stage 1, 2 or 8, it doesnít matter. Iím trying to fight it the best I can.Ē
ESPN Anchorís Private Battle With Cancer Becomes a Public One
Shitty. One of the few ESPN personalities I really liked. There clearly isn't a god because Skip Bayless is still breathing.
It happened while he was with ESPN. I've heard Dan Patrick talk about it several times. He was participating in the workout though. What I didn't know what that he was struck in his other eye with a basketball back in the 80's and had a detached retina, which is why his vision overall was bad.
May 29, 2002 - Stuart Scott, an Orlando sportscaster alum who has "boo-yahed" his way to ESPN popularity, comes back to SportsCenter after a gut-wrenching two-month layoff. Next week he'll cover the NBA Finals and seem -- to use another of his catchphrases -- "as cool as the other side of the pillow."
Scott returns humbled after nearly losing a dear friend who has seen him through the last 36 years.
His left eye.
Reading a bill for a pizza he had ordered on Tuesday was still difficult. He has no idea what following the rolling words on a teleprompter will be like.
On April 3, Scott saw his life as a sportscaster flash before his eye.
One minute he was working out with some New York Jets. The next he was dazed, frightened and hearing the team ophthalmologist say that he needed emergency surgery.
Scott was preparing a three-part series on what it would be like to go through an NFL minicamp.
"It was no joke, not a George Plimpton thing," he said, referring to the writer who authored a daffy first-person account of playing quarterback with the Detroit Lions in the mid-'60s.
Scott, 36, is no pancaked pretty boy. He's a former prep football star and semi-pro player. He caught passes, ran a 4.6 40 and performed agility drills with the Jets. He then lined up with Laveranues Coles, Curtis Martin and other players in front of a high-powered machine that flings footballs.
Scott doesn't remember how it happened. But the point of a launched football struck him in the left eye, splitting his cornea and lens.
An exceptional man. He will be missed.
Here lies the man who invented the word Booya. He is a little treasure of our culture.
I haven't really watched him in several years, but Stuart Scott is directly responsible for everything my buddies and I did in the mid-90's being described as "Straight Buttah".
