Thoughts, lists and other compulsive bits about baseball from comedian filmmaker television producer/Red Sox fan Paul Francis Sullivan....
feel free to call him “Sully.”
Then why did Jeter, and the entire Yankees team, pass on Mr. Sheppard's funeral yesterday? Caused a bit of a furor in the NY papers today.
That is a Good Question Q, Don LeGreca and the 1050 Afternoon Crew asked the same question and I wonder too. Maybe one of the few times He dropped the ballBut overall I agree with Sully.
Do we know all the facts, Q?Did the Sheppard family want a private funeral?I am no Yankee lover, but they do honor their legends well, so I won't condemn them for something that I don't know all the facts for
It wasn't private, Sully. Check out this column from my friend, Lisa, a dedicated Yankees fan. It will shed some more light on it: http://subwaysquawkers.blogspot.com/2010/07/should-derek-jeter-have-gone-to-bob.html
