A memo from the editors ( says he'll take a larger role at ESPN. He had been with the paper for almost 32 years.

As a former newspaper guy, I recognize the departure is a blow to the paper, but he's clearly an engaging TV presence, and his NBA work on ABC is solid. This makes sense.

Also, if he could work a regular column like Sports Guy, he could compete as that network's online basketball guy.

I'm shocked that he was still with the paper. He and Tony have been doing local TV for about 15-20 years already with The Redskins report and whatever they call the Wizards show.

I assumed he already took one of the many buyouts that the Post has offered over the years.

Well, he was already an ESPN employee first and a WAPO employee second for a few years now. This just makes it official.

Adios, Mayor McCheese.

You will not be missed from the Post (anyway).

Ask and ye shall receive. While I haven't kept up because of an intense schedule at THQ, I managed to catch up with all the previous issues. But since a post recapping EVERYTHING would be insane, I can provide a few bulletpoints. Week 15:
