Shoeshine Man on Duty

Does anybody know what ever happened to Shoeshine Man from State? I can remember when he would bust up in our suite my freshman year looking for some 'Lammas' and talking a bunch of nonsense.

On one occasion in particular I remember he came in Eric T's room while we were sitting there bs'ing with our normal routine. Eric was playing a game of pool on his computer and I'm sure we were watching Jeopardy or Springer. Shine was asking Eric about that 'crazy' looking game he was playing and Eric offered to let him play.

It was pretty damn funny. When Shine tried to pull the cue stick back he ended up shifting the view to be upside down and underneath the table. Eric quickly corrected this for him and then Shine ended up upside down again. I think Shine was convinced there was some sort of major skill involved with the game and quickly became frustrated before finally giving up.

Anyway, I occasionally think of Shine and wonder what happened to him. If you have any info please share, or feel free to post your favorite Shoeshine Man story.
