When Rich Eisen arrived at ESPN in 1996, his first on-air partner was Stuart Scott, who passed away Sunday morning after a long battle with cancer. Eisen and Scott were one of the most entertaining duos in the network’s history, and during NFL Gameday on the NFL Network, Eisen said goodbye to his dear friend.
“I loved this man. I still love this man, and the fact that he has passed away is absolutely mind-boggling, and a travesty. He battled cancer as bravely as anybody else, and I know there are many people out there who are battling cancer right now… Stuart would want you to know to keep fighting, and that he didn’t lose his battle with cancer. He fought it as bravely as he possibly could. And as you go to bed tonight, flip your pillow over to the cool side, and before you go to sleep — as Stuart would say, when you hit your knees tonight — and pray to the big man for his beautiful daughters who he loved, Taelor and Sydni.”
