    Very, very sad.

    Hopefully, the Yanks can give him a nice official send-off and he is healthy enough to attend.

    On a lighter note, here is a psycho named Chris Pavia who does a pretty good impersonation from his home.

    Video sucks, but its still fun if you are a Sheppard fan.

    I was the PA announcer at a little league game a few years back, and I gave one of the hitters the "Sheppard treatment" when I announced his at bat...the kid looked into the sky starstruck with his mouth hanging open, thought he was at Yankee stadium lol.
