ESPN Anchor Stuart Scott Dies of Cancer at Age 49

Celebs we lost in 2014
Longtime commentator for ESPN’s “Sportscenter”, Stuart Scott, has passed away from his battle with cancer.

The 49-year-old has been heavily remembered in the Twitter-sphere from friends and celebs alike, as a devoted father to his two daughters, trailblazing sports anchor, and for his slew of many catchphrases like “boo-yah!”, “call him butter, he’s on a roll”, and “as cool as the other side of the pillow”.

Rich Eisen, Scott’s longtime friend and colleague, also gave an emotional speech about his “TV wife”, holding back tears.










President Obama was also amongst those to issue a statement, saying:

I will miss Stuart Scott. Twenty years ago, Stu helped usher in a new way to talk about our favorite teams and the day’s best plays. For much of those twenty years, public service and campaigns have kept me from my family – but wherever I went, I could flip on the TV and Stu and his colleagues on SportsCenter were there. Over the years, he entertained us, and in the end, he inspired us – with courage and love. Michelle and I offer our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, and colleagues.

R.I.P. Stuart Scott, and our thoughts and prayers go out to his two daughters and family.
