Longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott dies at 49
Monday January 5th, 2015

ESPN anchor Stuart Scott died on Sunday and ever since the news broke, the sports media world has been flooded with tributes and remembrances, including a very clever nod to Scott's impact on sports from The Virginian-Pilot.

The paper's sports section is covered in headlines that feature some of Scott's signature phrases from his time on SportsCenter, calling Tony Romo and Andrew luck "as cool as the other side of the pillow," and titling a story about the Old Dominion basketball team "Call the Monarchs butter, 'cause they are on a roll."

Scott first joined ESPN in 1993 and became a fixture on the network's broadcasts. He was recently awarded the company's Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at the 2014 ESPY's for his battles with cancer.
