Stuart Scott's last few months passed quietly. After his emotional speech at the ESPYs in July, Scott balanced both his work at ESPN and his physical battle with cancer. The longtime sportscaster refused to call for pity, and his passing, although foreshadowed over the summer, took many by surprise on Sunday.
His work was anything but quiet. For two decades, Scott provided sports fans with his diverse catchphrases and unique character. Scott's life is over, but his legacy has only begun.
One day after his passing, a Norfolk, Va. newspaper, The Virginian-Pilot, displayed a tribute to Scott on its sports page. Along with an article on Scott, the page's four other headlines featured Scott catchphrases.
Here is the image as displayed on The Virginian-Pilot's sports editor Tom White's Twitter page:
Scott was 49. He is survived by his two daughters, Taelor and Sydni, his ex-wife, Kimberly Scott, and his girlfriend, Kristin Spodobalski.
