Merril Hoge’s “Bye Week” Heart Surgery a Success
Always great to report great news like this.
NFL analyst Merril Hoge took what he called a “bye week” from ESPN’s football coverage this weekend, in preparation to undergo heart surgery to prepare a vessel. The surgery was deemed a success, something I am sure Steelers Nation/World is happy to hear.
Hoge’s surgery was scheduled for Monday morning, and his ESPN colleagues announced on Twitter that the procedure was a success.
