He obtained his Masters from Columbia University;

At St John's University, both in Brooklyn and in Queens, he taught Speech. He even taught one John Franco, he from the Mets Bullpen;

Godspeed MR Sheppard!

This is a great sports blog that you have here. I have a couple of sports blogs myself which I hope will be a useful place on the web for sports fans to find useful commentary and discussion. I was wondering if we could exchange links and help spread some traffic around for both of us. Please let me know if this is possible.
