Stuart Scott says his cancer has returned

Longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott announced on Twitter Monday night that he is once again battling cancer.

Stuart-Scott-cancerScott, who is now 47 years old, was originally diagnosed with appendiceal cancer back in 2007 after undergoing an emergency appendectomy. He has had an off-and-on fight with cancer over the past several years, also needing chemotherapy in 2011.

Unsurprisingly, the always-upbeat Scott said he is going to do everything he can to work around his treatments and not allow them to affect his schedule with ESPN.

Scott also retweeted and thanked a number of people who have shown him support, including superstars like Robert Griffin III, Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul, among many others. He appeared on the 11 p.m. edition of SportsCenter after making the announcement on Twitter and seemed to be the same old Stuart.

Our thoughts and support are with Stuart as he once again tries to overcome one of the most difficult obstacles life can put in your way.

Stuart Scott Drops an Accidental F-Bomb in Referencing Derek Anderson (Video)

Derek Anderson can thank Stuart Scott for making sure he wasn’t the only one dropping curse words on live television after the Cardinals embarrassing loss to the 49ers on Monday night.  Last night, we showed you Anderson’s rant after a reporter asked him why he was laughing during the game when his team was getting spanked.  As a Deadspin reader pointed out, our man Stu wanted to make sure the Cardinals’ QB was in good company, so he took it upon himself to warm up ESPN’s “bleep fucktion” — as he so gracefully put it.  Check out the Stuart Scott f-bomb video, courtesy of YouTube user weaksauc321:
