“When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.”
– Stuart Scott
The other day we lost yet another great person to the battle against cancer. Stuart Scott was only 49 years old and for the past 20 years he has shared his love of sports with us as a broadcaster with ESPN. For the past 7 years he has ferociously battled against cancer, even beating it twice. His work ethic, approach to life and devotion to his daughters were an inspiration to cancer survivors and people everywhere. It was reported that Scott would undergo chemotherapy and then immediately head out to do grueling workouts that would include MMA and P90X training. He was determined to do whatever he could to fight the disease and live his life on his terms.
Scott’s vernacular has permeated sports culture with signature catch phases that include:
– “As cool as the other side of the pillow.”
– “Call him carwash cuz he’s automatic.”
– “You ain’t got to go home, but you got to get the heck up outta here.”
– “Just call him butter cuz he’s on a roll.”
– “Like gravy on a biscuit, it’s all good!”
and of course…
– “Boo-Yah !”
Robert Bruno has completed a tribute to Scott that captures his stoic nature perfectly. Here is what Robert had to say about the image over on his BEHANCE PAGE.
