The thorough bred against a clamor,
or rather,
the porsche vs. a pickup truck.
–Larry Merchant, HBO Sports

And an era comes to a close. Longtime HBO color commentator, Larry Merchant, has either hung up the spikes, or finally bit the bullet. Last night during the return of Roy Jones Jr., Max Kellerman filled in for the greatest mind in the history of boxing. He did a passable job, but Merchant was something special.

Take note of the fan’s soliloquy being cut short. “He was robbed, he was URK!”

My favorite part here is the chuckle after the comment…Merchant is certainly drunk at this point of the evening.

Where can I find this hat!?
