Stuart Scott died Sunday at the age of 49, and appropriately for such a big personality, tributes have poured in from a variety of sources.

One of the most touching moments came when ESPN’s Hannah Storm became visibly choked up while live reporting Scott’s death on Sportscenter. “Today we choose not to say that Stuart lost to cancer at the age of 49,” she said. “Instead, we’ll simply say we all lost Stuart.”

Robin Roberts – no stranger to battling cancer – posted a lengthy, emotional tribute to Scott on Facebook Sunday night.

Rich Eisen also shared his thoughts on Scott in a heartfelt segment Sunday evening on the NFL Network. “Stuart was one of the most joyful, full-of-life individuals I have come across I love this man. I still love this man.”

Sportscenter‘s Scott Van Pelt spoke with Eisen at length about working with Scott later Sunday.

And Eisen continued his tribute, filling his segment on the highlights of the Bengals-Colts playoff with Scott’s catchphrases.
