Stuart Scott knew what his audience needed -- and he provided it by being himself, Scoop Jackson writes. But they are only one aspect of his legacy. When he passed away, he left behind so much more.
He inspired his colleagues with his sheer talent, his work ethic and his devotion to his daughters, Taelor, 19, and Sydni, He defied convention and criticism to help bring this network into a new century.
He spoke to the very athletes he was talking about with a flair and a style that ESPN president John Skipper says, "changed everything. 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," the president said.
Moments of silence were held at sporting events around the United States on Sunday, including the NFL wild-card games between the Cincinnati Bengals vs. Indianapolis Colts and Detroit Lions vs. Scott saved his best for his last year on the air.
At the ESPYS on July 16, shortly before his 49th birthday and following another round of cancer surgery, Stuart accepted the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance with strength, humor, grace and these eloquent words: You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.
He was as popular on campus as he was in the airports he passed through and on the sidelines he worked over the last 22 years. He brought so much to the party, and he will continue to do so, through the people he inspired, and the language that he liberated, and the audience that will remember him.
And to his credit, he brought something special every night he was on. You're having trouble sleeping.
But then you think to turn the pillow over, and, wow, it's cool, and it feels so good. He is 'the other side of pillow,' the man who made sportscasting cool. God bless whoever it was who thought to rearrange the bedding at ESPN. Stuart went to R. He says that's where he first came up with the pillow metaphor.
I just liked it. Says Ramsey, "You knew the second he walked in the door that it was a pit stop, and that he was gonna be this big star somewhere someday. I followed up and found out that Stuart's contract was up soon. He sent me a tape, and even then, he had an amazing presence -- I felt the viewer would sit up and take notice when he was on the air.
Fortunately, some of us lasted longer than ESPN2 did. Even I encouraged him to maybe take a more traditional approach, but he had a strong conviction about who he wanted to be, and the voice he wanted to project, and clearly, he was right, and we were wrong.
It didn't hit me until that moment that this guy was making an impact. He received a lot of hate mail, most of it anonymous. If the senders did leave a name and address, Stuart would answer and ask them to tell him what the problem really was. · Celebrated and beloved Age journalist Michael Gordon dies aged 62 he called "the family business" at the age of at rival newspaper The Age.
