He used to be our local sports anchor so I've seen him on TV a lot longer than most. Seemed like a good dude, cancer claims another victim. :(

His speech at the ESPY's last year was absolutely fantastic.

“When you die it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.”

Only 49 as well. Way too soon.

Way to be a di*k and disrespectful. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back for starting the new year right.
Boo hoo. You were the one being a baby. The man was an innovator and a well-respected sports reporter. A couple days of Boo Yah! Isn't going to hurt you.

Funny how someone in a position of power (cough, cough) claims we are a 'post-racial' country, but here they are talking about Scott because of his... ethnicity.

I wonder if John Saunders feels respected these days...

I feel bad for the kids - had a bunch of cousins lose their fathers that young - has to be tough. But let's not make the guy out to be some super genius. While I don't want to go back to the days of the Sports at 11:17PM on the late news from some guy wearing a plaid blazer, the sportscasters self-promoting has gone too far. This is one place I like how the Brits do it - they call them Presenters and Newsreaders.
