Very sad to hear about Stuart Scott yesterday. I met him a few times at the Jimmy V golf tournament, since the tourney was in August one year I got to talk a little good natured junk about State vs UNC football (probably back in the Rivers era) and he had some fun with it. In retrospect that’s a pretty cool moment.
Before the tourney they would have a reverse raffle for a new BMW. Towards the end people would make offers to buy up the final tickets. Stuart would be one of the MCs and when the price got a little too steep he would chip in hundreds of dollars out of his own pocket to sweeten the pot and keep things moving and a little more interesting. I will definitely remember that generosity.
If you haven’t seen Rich Eisen do the Colts/Bengals highlights with all of Stuart’s catchphrases, it’s pretty cool
