Shaq Is Gonna Play Football Against Ben Roethlisberger

I find it odd that this news comes out on the day I feature a mini horse named Shaq.

The NBA big man has a new reality show coming out in which he takes on some huge sports stars at their respective games. ABC has scheduled Shaq Vs., and it’s as greenlit as possible.

“Filming begins Wednesday in Pittsburgh, where Shaq takes on Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in football. Future hour-long episodes will pit him against Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya, St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols, tennis pro Serena Williams and beach volleyball Olympians Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh.

O’Neal, 37, says he also hopes to book pal Lance Armstrong for a cycling competition once the Tour de France ends.

I might actually tune in. Shaq’s last reality show was when he helped fat kids do something, so there was no real reason for me to watch. Hell, the only thing that really came out of it was the above image, which might be the only picture online of Shaq and a football.

Trust me, I looked…pretty much as hard as the last 20 seconds would allow me. And Big Ben is pretty much a fat kid, so I guess this picture is even more perfect than I originally thought.
