James Sheppard Appreciation

As for the Wild - if James Sheppard is playing in an untelevised hockey game... does he still fall?

Hope you don't mind Bob. And to answer the question, I say yes.

James Sheppard once had an unawkward moment, just to see how it felt.

That must have been an awkward moment for everyone else.

Werd. I didn't know how to react. It was like looking a donkey show and being mortified that what is taking place is actually happening but in the same light....you can't look away

Well that accounts for one of Sheppard's goals this year. Now to explain the other one - I'm going with voodoo.

Not at all. Does anybody know how he looked (sounded?) in the Nashville game? Tuesday was a step in the right direction for him, despite all his break dancing.

I'd appreciate Shepaprd a whole lot more if he was to pull a Wes Walz and disappear for unforeseeable future.

Unfortunately his break dancing doesn't translate that well onto radio. Maybe if he brought singing into the act, but I don't think Sheppard can be a two-way threat.

If James Sheppard was God, thus perfect, could he create a goal so big he couldn't miss it?

Yes, but this is under the assumption that he also uses this:

But doesn't he play the guitar?

I remember numerous Wild interviews and what not with him and for some reason they always focused on him playing it...

Never a bad thing to prepare for an alternative career path I guess. Though, I think he'd be the musician that you always hear about every so often taking a header of the stage.

He does and "Roscoe" apparently has more success with it than on the ice.

On his birthday, James Sheppard randomly selects one lucky child to be thrown into the sun.

James Sheppard is the only player to ever be out-muscled along the boards by a pile of snow.

I hear he saves them if they started to skate by age 3 and trains them in his dojo.

I wouldn't doubt if he lured them them in with his amazing ballads, just like that Peter Piper or whatever that storybook was

Human cloning is outlawed because if James Sheppard was cloned, then it would be possible for one James Sheppard to meet another James Sheppard at the puck, at which point they'd bounce off each other and fall over.

This is proof that two negatives don't always equal a positive. More importantly, physicists theorize that this contact would end the universe.

Of course both Sheppards would still miss the puck, but that's besides the point.

Peter Piper is a brand of pickles.

To shamelessly steal one from Herbie .... Sheppard is playing worse and worse every day and now he's playing like it's next month.

I will say this, he had at least TWO yes, I said TWO opportunities last night that aided in keeping the puck in the zone. But he also sucked some ass on the boards, to include kicking his own skate out from underneath himself

I personally got a kick out of him cutting down Toskalol from the blindside. I'm not sure how, but he just fell with not a soul around him and goes crashing into the net.

I seriously died when that happened. I was screaming his name out soon as I saw him going down
