FAQ


What's the deal with "Affirmation, Baby?" I mean, it's humorous and all, but what was the genesis of the term?


Affirmation, Baby!

Affirmation, Baby came from none other that good old Schtu, Stuart Scott, famous ESPN SportsCenter Level 1 Head and University of North Carolina grad. You see, Scott played with Jornad in a charity basketball event. The following is from an article on Armchair QB.

"This 'Sportscenter' co-host, like Jordan a North Carolina graduate, has many great MJ memories, both on and off the court.

"On the 2 a.m. show with Davis, he said his top remembrance about Jordan is from a celebrity basketball game when Scott fed MJ for a dunk and gazed until Jordan thanked him for the pass with an extended finger. 'Affirmation,' Scott said."

Well, this caught Mr. Tony's and at the time producter Denis Horgan Jr.'s fancy, and a slew of "Affirmation, Baby" e-mails followed.

But honestly, he WAITED for the affirmation. That doesn't seem right…
