In Memoriam: Stuart Scott (1965-2015)

ESPN's Stuart Scott is gone.

The cause of his death will be recorded as cancer, but that would be selling his struggle over the last seven years short.  It's been a very public and very visible struggle with a tough form of the devastating disease.

Thankfully, this past July, Scott somehow found the strength to leave us with this amazing speech at the ESPY Awards.  It was defiant.  It was strong.  It was memorable.  It was inspiring.

At the end of the day, we saw a man be strong and vulnerable and loving in the face of the fight of his life.  In the end, by his definition, he won his battle.  Stuart Scott will always be remembered for how he lived.  Even if It was all too short.

Stuart Scott exits this life at 49.
