RIP Stu

You won't need me to tell you what kind of sports anchor Stuart Scott was or what effect he had on his chosen profession...ESPN has that covered in spades.  Instead I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to see for the first time or see again his acceptance speech at the ESPYs this summer, having been given the perseverance reward by the Jimmy V Foundation.
Stuart Scott last his long battle with cancer this morning at the age of 49.  Think of the two young daughters he left behind and live your life like there is no tomorrow because it is certainly possible.

This speech in my opinion is right up there with Jim Valvano's legendary speech:

RIP Stuart Scott. SportsCenter used to be very enjoyable to watch. Stuart, Dan Patrick, Keith Olbermann and Kenny Mayne were worth watching every night.

Those were the days.

Tom Mees, Craig Kilborn to name two other anchors on Sportscenter that were great. Sad to hear about Stuart.
