If you’ve ever said “Boo-Yah!,” you owe it to one man. According to the ESPN report, “Among the features of the new ESPN studio in Bristol is a wall of catchphrases made famous by on-air talent over the years. An amazing nine of them belong to one man — from his signature “Boo-Yah!” to “As cool as the other side of the pillow” to “He must be the bus driver cuz he was takin’ him to school.””
It is clear from their web site that those at ESPN will miss Stuart Scott and all that he brought to the sports world. Those who enjoy watching sports will surely feel the loss today as well.
