It’s that time of the year again to with Rasheed Wallace a Happy Birthday. I was 34 years ago today that Sheed came into this word to spread cheer, threes and technical fouls for all to enjoy. We may have not been invited to the party, but that doesn’t mean we can’t wish him well.
Thank you Sheed for all the excitement, entertainment, passion and the pride you display every time you step on the hardwood. Thank you for being a team player and helping the Pistons become the elite team they once were. Thank you for all the Guaransheeds whether they come through or not, it just means we know you are going bust your ass to get us the win. Thank you for all the charity work you do even though you don’t like to publicize it. Thank you for adding comic relief to a sport that can be at times a bit too serious. Thank you for wearing the throwback “short shorts” after you were fined by the league for wearing yours too long, (I can’t tell you how hilarious that was). Thank you for calling people out no matter what the consequences. Thank you for This… This and most of all THIS!
I like to pay homage to the man in my own way. Some say it’s an obsession, but if you know me I’m just a fan of the man, his skills and his passion. I wish him a happy, injury free, Championship Year (as long as he’s still with Detroit come February).
