ESPN ANCHOR EXPECTED TO RETURN TO AIR FOR FRIDAY NIGHT NBA: ESPN viewers may have been wondering where Stuart Scott has been for the past few weeks. Well, it turns out the booyah braggadocio has been recovering from intestinal cancer.
The Worldwide Leader reports that Scott is expected to be back on the air Friday night, almost a month after falling off the schedule for falling ill.
Stuart underwent an emergency appendectomy in November, after getting sick right before a Steelers-Dolphins Monday Night game. (Watching Miami this season usually produces some kind of discomfort.)
However, during the surgery, doctors discovered some malignant tissue around Stuart’s appendix. So, Scott went back under the knife to get rid of the troublesome tissue. Although the docs believe they got all the bad stuff out, Stuart will be undergoing chemotherapy as a cautious measure.
Scott called the cancer news a “shocker”, but finds comfort in all the concern he’s received: “I can’t find the words to express how much I appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers.”
Can’t find the words? Stuart Scott? We find that a little hard to believe.
But we wish Stu well, and hope his recovery stays as cool as the other side of the pillow.
