    One of the great characters of AP Sports in New York in the late '70s and '80s. He was huge on the radio side but I knew him as the night supervisor in sports when I started there in 1981. I was just 23. I loved Marv. He was smart and funny and quick and most of all professional. He had tremendous news judgement as a supervisor and was respected by a crazy bunch of national writers with huge egos. He always had a cigar in his mouth. I have trouble picturing him without one. As he left the department at the end of a shift, he would almost invariably turn to those of us still there and say, "Maybe we'll get it right tomorrow." I often use that line as I'm leaving my office these days. RIP Marv.

    One of my favorite people during my short time in New York Sports. Just a great guy all the way around.

    RIP Marv.

    Overlapped with him at AP -- who didn't? -- and remember him to be a fun and friendly voice over the phone whenever I called him or he called me.
