Another hole that cannot and will not be filled; our friend Larry Merchant, the always poetic and occasionally combustible analyst for HBO, announced that after 35 years, he was walking away from the cabler's color chair. Indeed, he did provide color, as when he and Floyd Mayweather got into it after Floyd beat Victor Ortiz.
If Larry were 50 years younger, we'd get to enjoy 50 more years of his top shelf work. Thanks for the entertainment, and insight, Larry. And thank you readers, for being so loyal to TSS. We wish you a happy new, healthy, peaceful 2013.
