This is no joke. There's a thread "over there" dedicated to him and a reliable poster has indicated that he has passed on.

Halloween RIP To one of the best Tiger posters.

Stunned

I have talked to Scott on the phone before and after he had to have surgery to amputate his legs because of diabetes and he has been on kidney dialysis a long time, but I am totally shocked about this turn of events! Things had gone downhill fast after his mom died (they lived together). OMG is all I can feel right now. I will try calling his apt. and see if I can get any family member who can fill us in on what happened.

I thought I would post a pic of Scott here (from his myspace website)

I pray you are Resting in Peace, in the Lord's arms, Scott (TigerSaint). No more pain, no more dialysis, you can run, see and sing again. I am sure you are helping lead the Angelic choir in some Shakapela and other harmony!

This is the Pic Scott sent, of himself, to me last year. It is his Teacher of the year photo.

I am sure your students are really missing you!

You said it; I am just so upset right now; Even though; I never met him; you felt like you knew him[ I feel the same way about a lot of people on these boards] And the ones I have been lucky enough to meet; Like Catbox; [ I talk with him for 20 minutes; felt like I have known the guy for years] it is amazing how well I get along with when I meet them

Tigersaint wrote this when we had the Poetry Thread "over there."

"Ode to the Tigers"

Grandy is dandy, and Anderson's fast
Santiago and Everett, I hope they can last

With Justin's fine pitching, and help from the pen
we might keep on winning, again and again

But Carlos and Marcus they haven't been playing
that they come back healthy, is what we've been praying

Magglio, Polly, and GLaird, and Inge
will make contributions and go on a binge

Porcello and Perry, our young guns are good
but Nates a disaster we'd trade if we could

Zach Miner's our swingman and Jacksons a stud
Armando was fine till he fell with a thud

Cabrera's a monster, the pride of this poster
and 'Nando, well gee he's our new rollercoaster

We cheer them from Lansing, from Canton and Zeeland
we badger the old guy who's name is Jim Leyland

We jeer at Dombrowski and cheer for Rick Knapp
for putting our pitching staff back on the map

So come Tiger fans let us cheer for our team
the pennant or bust is our mid-summer's dream

I was so fortunate to have met him in person and had dinner with him at Spring Training last year.
Unbelievable...but just think not only his mom he's with now but all Tigers that have passed on

I read that poem and teared up...

He always encouraged me to sing my heart out and learn how to read music. And I will never forget how much he joked with me about Chad.

You will be missed Scott..to say the very least.

OMG.....I came here after reading about it "over there"! It can't be!!! Sad Sad

Scott was the kindest man I know. We have lost one of the best friends we could ever have.

The wife and I have been planning on taking the kids to Cedar Point tonight, so when I go...I'm going to stop in at the Red Garter Saloon and have a beer in his honor. That may not sound like much...but for those of you that didn't know....Scott worked there many years ago. He was one of the performers (back in the mid/early 80's if I remember correctly).

Rest in Peace my dear friend...Rest in Peace.
