During NFL GameDay Morning, Rich Eisen paid tribute to his friend, Stuart Scott, who passed away this morning at the age of 49. Eisen who co-anchored SportsCenter with Scott in the 1990’s fought back the tears as he was talking about his good friend. Eisen mentioned that him, a Jewish kid from Staten Island became friends with a black man from Chicago by way of North Carolina. It’s quite powerful.
Last year, Eisen told us that his Walk and Talk at the end of Thursday Night Football was his way of saying hi to his friend.
