Clearly the secret was having the engine slightly warm. I quickly gave up the idea of using a box end although in hindsight, had I tried it with the engine slightly warm, it might have worked. At any rate, I bought the split socket made for oxygen sensors($16), sprayed the sensor threads down with PB Blaster, let it sit for 30 minutes or so and was done in a few minutes.
Thanks for the tip, Archon.

Being exhaust related...a quick couple seconds of running will heat up the area and make it easy. Only thing to remember is that it'lll be hot as well.

Glad to hear it went smoothly.

$60 from gmpartsdirect but you have to add roughly 25% shipping and handling.
I had tried with the engine cold to get it out and absolutely no go, even after soaking it. A short spin around the block did the trick.
I had to laugh at the instructions with the new sensor because they said to use a torque wrench to do the reinstallation. Given the tight quarters where it is located, I'd love to see whoever wrote that try to use a torque wrench and have it accurate since you don't have a straight shot at it.
