Stuart Scott became one of the most well-known and well-liked figures in the sports broadcasting industry during his 21 year career at ESPN. Coining catchphrases such as, “Like gravy on a biscuit, it’s all good!” and “As cool as the other side of the pillow,” Scott changed the dynamics of sports broadcasting forever. Diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in 2007, Scott made the most of everyday, living by his own words of wisdom, “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.” Unfortunately, after seven years of fighting, Scott passed away on January 4th at the age of 49. Although Scott may be gone, his lasting legacy and inspiration that we should never give up and never lose hope will live on forever. Rest in Peace, Stuart Scott.

Needless to say, this quieted the guys pretty quickly.

With Kelly and Michael.” While seeing him sing in a onesie was a big surprise, I think the bigger surprise was that he actually isn’t a horrible singer.
Christmas Eve is the perfect time to curl up on the couch and watch a few Christmas movies. If you're stuck on which ones to watch, here are 10 that have all the holiday spirit you'll need!
