ESPNs Stuart Scott was emotional and poignant last night as he accepted the ESPY honoring his battle with cancer, the Jimmy V Award.
Scott thanked his family, girlfriend, his daughters and his ESPN friends and colleagues. Scott told the ESPY audience that he had just gotten out of the hospital, another 9-day stay in his battle with cancer. “I wasn’t even sure if I would be able to be here tonight,” Scott said as he stood on the stage.
Stuart was introduced by actor Keifer Sutherland, who plays Jack Bauer, on Stuart’s favorite television show, 24.
