Thursday marked three years since the passing of Stuart Scott. The longtime ESPN host, best known for his use of brilliant catchphrases such as “cool as the other side of the pillow,” “holla at a playa when you see him in the street,” and, of course, “booyah,” died of appendix cancer in 2015 at the age of 49. But although he’s gone, Scott will never be forgotten, especially by the fans who grew up watching him on ESPN. And when it comes to remembering Scott, nothing stands out more than his hilariously irreverent appearances in SportsCenter commercials.
On the third anniversary of his passing, SportsCenter paid homage to Scott with a collection of his best bits from those memorable commercials. And while the video is just a series of clips, it’s like Proust’s madeleine for old ESPN fans, who will suddenly find themselves overcome with memories of each and every one of those iconic ads. Booyah!
