Rich Eisen Pays Heartfelt Tribute to Stuart Scott

This morning on The NFL Network’s GameDay, Rich Eisen began by turning the clock back to 1996 and the moment when, as a “Jewish kid from New York City,” he walked on to the ESPN set to work alongside Stuart Scott, who passed away this morning after a long battle with cancer.

The above two and a half minutes are raw, eloquent and everything you need to know about the kind of impact Scott made on those who got to work with him.

As Rich Sandomir notes in his New York Times obit, at the 2014 ESPYS, Scott reminded everyone that “When you die, that doesn’t mean you lose to cancer.” RIP. #BooYa.
