Catchphrases used by Stuart Scott[edit]

  • "Booyah!"
  • "Mojo!"
  • "Hater in the House!" (usually after an american football interception or other great defensive play.)
  • "Playa please!"
  • " *"Holla at a playa when ya' see him on the street." (home run or a nice play)
  • "Can I get a witness from the congregation?"
  • "T.O. plays nice like Tookie after the drip"
  • "He shoots hot like a brother at a police convention."
  • "As cool as the other side of the pillow." (he may have popularised this saying but I've just seen it in the 1969 film "Guns of the Magnificent Seven").

In the 1960s, I heard Ray Scott (no relation), the Packers TV announcer, use this phrase ('Cool / Pillow') to describe Bart Starr. It may have been in the Ice Bowl, but I am not sure about that. Jrgilb (talk) 05:20, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

  • "Ever Berman could holla at Artest, playa you cry as much as Anna Benson with Stephen A. Scott"
  • "That run was as fat as Oprah laying down in flour."
  • "Call him butter, 'cause he was on a roll."
  • "Yo, he smacked that ball like Mike Irvin with a eight ball and a best header"
  • "He steals the rock like Jesse at a fundraiser"
  • " Yo, playa, pass the reef, holla at him"
  • "Call him Bus (reference to Jerome Bettis) 'cause he took them to school" and "If you need a token for that bus, here I am"
  • "Talks smack like Whitney and Bobby after gettin down with a pipe and some wack crack"
  • "And the Lord said, 'You got to rise up!'" (à la a Southern Baptist preacher, "Lord" pronounced with an extra-long open-mid back rounded vowel and with an alveolar flap instead of an alveolar approximant)
  • "I ain't gonna be sayin' nothin', but that ain't right!"
  • "You know he can score if the white ladies are tuggin at his shorts, Boohyah!!!"
  • "[He] takes/brings it to the house." (when an American football player scores a rushing touchdown)
  • "He don made all his kinfolk proud...Pookie, Moesha, Shanene"
  • "Badookadunk"
  • "Shaq likes to dominate the paint like Berman with a leather skirt"
  • "Lemme know"
  • "Bananas!"
The above list was becoming so large that it was becoming less of an article and more of a list of difficult to verify catchphrases. I have moved them to the talk page so that the ones that can be verified (and deemed noteworthy enough for inclusion) may be moved back into the article, if so desired. Alternatively, these could and probably should be migrated to Wikiquote instead. Merry Christmas, Can't sleep, clown will eat me 18:10, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

stu scott[edit]

whats his middle name


It's the same as his grandfather's & the name of a city where he worked @ one time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Daoudmv (talkcontribs) 15:26, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

His eye[edit]

Why isn't there info about his crazy eye and how he got hit upside the head with a football?

He thought he was a bad ass at the Jets minicamp and tried to catch a football out of a juggs machine and the ball came to fast for him and hit him square in the left eye.

This should definitely be in the article, when I came here I was surprised it wasn't. Although maybe you can leave out the part about him thinking he was a bad ass, unless we can get a source for that. Aaron Bowen 00:08, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

If you really want to know about the challenges S. Scott has had with his eye(s) outside of the singular Jets event, look up: Keratoconus. He's had mutiple surgeries throughout his life - since his teenage years - due to this progressive eye disease.

I don't think Stuart Scott has a glass eye. The part about the difference in appearance between the two eyes is consistant with a corneal transplant in one of them. The iris is lighter and appears to always be dilated. Ectophensis (talk) 06:09, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Unsourced as it is, this cannot be part of the article. --Seba5618 (talk) 04:23, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Not sure if this is accurate[edit]

"In 1993, he left NBC affiliate WESH in Orlando, FL to join the cast of SportsCenter,".. as I recall, Scott started on ESPN2, which does not have Sportscenter (they had a similar program called SportsNight.. Suzy Kolber was also an anchor.. see the ESPN2 article and his ESPN bio..)

I went to Milton E. Olive middle school in Wyandanch. We had a guy named Stuart Scott who got a fish hook in the eye. Maybe this is the real story. A girl named Kwamike Sanders hooked this kids eye while casting. The eye actually fell in the water and was eaten by some trout. This happened at the Cold Spring Harbor fish Hatchery. They cut open several hundred fish looking for this kids eye. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sjm831 (talkcontribs) 02:52, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

In regards to the previous paragraph... my bullshit detector is in the red. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.215.98.79 (talk) 05:22, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I also went to Milton E. Olive middle school in Wyandanch. We did have a guy named Stuart Scott who got a fish hook in the eye. Maybe this is the real story. A girl named Kwamike Sanders hooked this kids eye while casting. The eye actually fell in the water and was eaten by some trout. This happened at the Cold Spring Harbor fish Hatchery. They cut open several hundred fish looking for this kids eye. They found the eye and shoved it back in. It was very delightful. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.200.187.42 (talk) 22:21, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

changes[edit]

Hi guys, I just made some changes to the introduction of the article. I didn't add or remove any information, but I just tried to tweak it so it would be easier to read. Feel free to change it back if you guys liked it before; I just thought I'd try to help the article flow a bit easier for the reader. Great work on the article; I learned a lot, especially about his eye, which I had always wondered about. Username9238432 (talk) 21:40, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 4 January 2015[edit]

Taelo should be Taelor in the list of stuart scotts children on the right panel. 128.61.126.146 (talk) 22:01, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

It's been fixed. Sam Walton (talk) 22:38, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Type of cancer[edit]

Type of cancer he died from has not been released and he has specifically avoided naming it. There are just as many sources speculating stomach cancer in 2007 as appendiceal cancer. Neither are listed in 2014. Please stop adding specific cancers as the cause of death when every release on his death simply says 'cancer' according to his wishes. --DHeyward (talk) 05:25, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Yet, I have a source that specifically states he has Appendiceal cancer. User talk:dghavens 05:42, 5 January 2015 (UTC) Moreover, I don't think his wishes are a relevant part of Wikipedia. Please respond.

See NY Times So far, Scott said, his cancer has not spread beyond where it was found. But he would not give a doctor permission to speak about his condition or provide further details.[1]. It's speculation and that interview was last year. Here it says "Stomach cancer"[2]. The point is that 2007 is not 2015. Until someone says he died of a specific cancer, (and they haven't), we shouldn't guess. And yes, we respect his wishes when there is no reason not . --DHeyward (talk) 05:53, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

He says in the specific interview that he was initially diagnosed with Appendix Cancer. I am changing it to initially diagnosed to appendix cancer but I will leave cause of death at Cancer. You need to correct my edits regarding the early stages of cancer diagnosis. User talk:dghavens 06:01, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

You are confusing timeframes and making imprecise edits. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dghavens (talkcontribs) 06:02, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Which interview are you claiming he says appendiceal cancer? The NY Times didn't say it. No reliable says has said what cancer caused his death. --DHeyward (talk) 06:12, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
See huffington post for initial cancer diagnosis that surely included appendix cancer. I do not have a source for COD. Thanks for your insight. good point on cause of death. I was wrong on that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dghavens (talkcontribs) 06:16, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
There's one other thing about cancer that is nuanced. His appendix may have been cancerous when removed (everything removed is biopsied) but reading our article on Appendix cancer, other cancers can metastasize to the appendix. I don't know if there is a difference in saying he had "appendix cancer" in 2007 or if his "appendix was cancerous" in 2007 or if they are different. --DHeyward (talk) 14:38, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Cancer Return[edit]

Did Scott's cancer return in 2010 or 2011? I am seeing conflicting news on it.User talk:dghavens 06:44, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Not certain, I replaced 2011 (which was sourced to a dead AOL news story) with 2010 which I read in a newer article. But when doing that I wasn't sure it was correct. Note that the AOL story seemed to be written in January 2011 (from the URL) and referred to the treatment, so it might be the case that he was diagnosed at the end of 2010 and treated early 2011. Sam Walton (talk) 08:48, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

His cancer was diagnosed in November 2007 and first recurred in 2011 according to the article cited. However, they neglected to put it in the wikipedia article. It needs to be added where it says "After leaving Connecticut on a Sunday morning for Monday Night Football in Pittsburgh,..." because one immediately wonders "When was that?" From reference 30: "But the drugs have not fully arrested the cancer that struck first in 2007, when his appendix was removed. It returned four years later.

Comments[edit]

Early life
  • Overall, this is good. I'd link WR and DB, if you can, so readers who don't know about football can learn what those positions mean.
Done. Ikhtiar H (talk) 14:40, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
ESPN
  • The first part here is good, but the last sentence is confusing. First, if it's going to just be one sentence, it should be combined with another paragraph instead of just hanging out there by itself. But more importantly, you should explain the significance of being "selected to co-host the first SportsCenter to originate from DC-2 (Digital Center 2) at 11 p.m." I watch ESPN all the time, and even I don't know why this is a fact worth reporting.
Done. Removed as an insignificant work. Browsed everywhere but found nothing worth. Ikhtiar H (talk) 15:55, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
Catchphrases
  • The one without a citation should be removed unless you can find a citation for it.
Done. Ikhtiar H (talk) 15:00, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
Personal life
  • Is there anything in the source material about how he and his wife met, or why they got divorced?
NNot Done. Coemgenus, it is already mentioned that he was in a relationship with Kristin Spodobalski both in the reference and in this section. But it is not clear that it was the cause of their divorce. Therefore, it should be kept in the way it is written. Ikhtiar H (talk) 15:24, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
If it's not there, it's not there. We can't do more that the sources provide. --Coemgenus (talk) 16:07, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
Tributes
  • Those one-sentence paragraphs should be combined and made into a cohesive paragraph.
Done. Ikhtiar H (talk) 15:27, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
Television
  • If you can't find a citation for the two shows that don't have them, take them out.
Done. Ikhtiar H (talk) 15:43, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

That's all for now. There's not much that the article needs, and I look forward to your fixes. --Coemgenus (talk) 15:09, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Coemgenus, all done. Ikhtiar H (talk) 15:55, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
This looks fine, I'll pass it right away. Nice work! --Coemgenus (talk) 16:09, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
