OT: Stuart Scott question

Postby Y`s Guy » Mon Mar 22, 2004 10:19 am

I know, I know. It's not baseball but...

what in blazes is wrong with Stuart Scott's left eye? Is it just lazy? Or an accident with a BB gun? What?

I have to know. Thanks.

Well since you asked:

Stuart Scott's wife, Kimberly, winces when their 7-year-old daughter, Taelor, says, "Daddy, I'm glad you're home, but you still have to play football."

Scott, the popular ESPN SportsCenter host, has been home in Farmington, Conn., for nearly two months because of an injury to his left eye when he was struck by a football April 3. Scott, 36, was working out with the New York Jets in preparation for his ESPN piece on going through a minicamp.

The blow damaged the cornea, and Scott has been treated by several specialists as he strives to regain sufficient sight in his left eye to return to work. He'll soon be seen at Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore by Walter Stark, father of ABC Monday Night Football reporter Melissa Stark.

The process has been complicated because of previous problems with both eyes, including a right detached retina. Jerome Kramer is working on a contact lens for Scott's right eye before the injured left eye is able to handle a contact lens in another two to three months.

"Dr. Kramer's a genius," Scott says. "I just got a contact lens from him, and it's very close to being the right one. My left eye was my sight before. Now my brain has to tell me that my right eye will be the dominant eye. I believe I'll be able to return (as a reporter for) the NBA Finals, and (in) another two, three weeks I should be able to read a teleprompter on SportsCenter."

I don't have ESPN SportsCenter, I have TSN SportsCentre, so I guess this is like something happening to Darren Dutchyshen. Who cares? James Duthie can work overtime.

I don't mind Stuart Scott - but he's not half as hip as he thinks he is.

Mook, you watch ESPN instead of TSN? Why have you disowned Canada? I guess I can't blame you though, if I could afford sat TV I'd have it too........but nothing beats Canadian SportsCentre. I'd only have ESPN for the other stuff, I don't need to see biased American opinions in my sports reports. I have enough of that on the other channels. Not to mention the lack of hockey coverage on ESPN.

I used to watch ESPN all the time but I got rid of my dish and got digital cable - now I only get the crappy Canadian stations.

ESPN kicks Canadian sports shows.

The only Canadian sports programming worht watching is Hockey Night in Canada and Jodi Vance on Sportsnet news (Dutch and Duthie are ok - but not enough cleavage, seriously, anyone can read the news and when you have somebody as ugly as Stuart Scott sometimes you just end up reading the ticker on the bottom of the screen).

Thank God I still get PTI - but I miss Around the Horn and the ESPN 2-minute Drill. We don't even get the ESPN Dream Job!!

Stu-Yah is a joke. He's the worst. I'll switch to fox sports if he's on. His writing is so cheesy and "street".
