Rich Eisen Drops Stuart Scott Catchphrases in His Honor During Bengals-Colts Recap (Video)
Rich Eisen took to his shift on the NFL Network and dropped a few Stuart Scott catchphrases tonight in a tribute to the recently deceased ESPN personality.
Scott’s death was announced Sunday morning after his most recent battle with cancer. Two decades on the air left sports fans with no shortage of Stuart Scott catchphrases, and while Rich Eisen wasn’t able to get them all in, it was a nice stroll down memory lane—and made all the more impressive by the fact that they were all done during the highlight package for the Colts-Bengals game.
Rather than recount the heartfelt, fitting tribute from one funny anchor to another, let’s just give you the video:

It’s pretty cool that another network gave Eisen a forum, but not surprising. Stuart Scott was a pretty big personality not just on ESPN, but throughout the world of sports. And we all know about the connection shared between Eisen and Scott from their days together on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
Booyah, indeed. There’s a lot of good, serious work that Stuart Scott did in bringing us the sports news for so long, but the sadness surrounding his death is no reason to forget the comedy he also brought. And thanks to Rich Eisen for reminding us of that.
