He’s baaaaaaaaack.

By now the jiving and thriving of the Detroit Pistons’ dancing usher, Shannon Sailes, aka ‘The Dancing Usher’, are well known. Be it the jerking and working he did high atop the stairwell to first gain notoriety or the beautiful breakdown he provided on late night TV, the moves of the the most famous ticket-taker at The Palace at Auburn Hills are well worth a view.
