I know that many of you here (at the worst page on the internet) are not fans of ESPN. Back in the day, I was a huge fan of Sports Center and loved to catch my highlights either late at night, or early in the morning. No need to do that anymore…with the volumes of information available on the internet.
But, back then it was different. We first had Sports Center and then came ESPN News (the 30 minute format that ran on ad nauseam). Back to Sports Center for a minute. There were great anchors of that show Bob Ley, Dan Patrick, Kenny Mayne, Keith Olbermann, etc. But one of them was in a class all his own. Of course, the man that I’m speaking of is none other than Stuart Scott. His passion, vibe and delivery were undeniable! The man was spectacular in his role. He “brought it” every single time and he didn’t conform to the machine.
Today is a sad day, as we witness the passing of an impressive sports anchor. Stuart Scott is dead at the age of 49. RIP Stu! You were “cooler than the other side of the pillow”! Later, Jimmy D.
