I think where Stu may have gotten this from is the Guy songs of the late '80s (Guy was a R&B group). Teddy Riley would say "Yup Yup". Teddy Riley may have done this in a few Blackstreet songs too (he was a member of both groups).
Sometimes, when the highlight is a double between outfielders, he says, "Gap, gap."
Definitely a nod to Teddy Riley of Guy and Blackstreet fame, usually a positive affirmation applied to a team on the offensive...
