Last night marked one of the most emotional nights in all of sports, with the annual ESPY awards being handed out. It will now also forever mark a night of one of the most iconic speeches in sports when Stuart Scott took the mic.
When it came time to hand out the Jimmy V Perseverance Award, Keifer Sutherland gave everyone in the room, and everyone watching at home chills with his introduction of ESPN anchor Stuart Scott noting his very public struggle with cancer.
Trying to sum up Scott’s message once he took over the mic would do it a major injustice, so listen for yourself as he talks about living life to the fullest while you’re still lucky enough to be alive, and the importance of leaning on others during struggles instead of battling alone.
Hang in there until the end, becuase how he wraps up his time on stage is the personificiation of who Scott is as a human, and it may just be enough to choke up even the most hardcore audience.
