Shaq vs Albert Pujols

 

Shaq will be facing off against Albert Pujols in a Home Run Derby of sorts on Thursday night at 8:30 for his reality show, Shaq Vs.  I am absolutely thrilled to say that this event will take place at TR Hughes Park in my hometown of O'Fallon, Missouri and that I will be one of the lucky 6000 in attendance. 

St. Louis, a city that normally does not even acknowledge the existence of the NBA, has been pretty Shaq crazy the last couple days.  He threw out the opening pitch at Busch Stadium for the Cardinals game on Tuesday night.  Did a pretty good job, too.  Not to get political, but Shaq's pitch ranked better than Obama's but not quite as good as Bush's back in 01 or 02.

I'm super pumped so just thought I would share with you all.  Oh, by the way, its pretty funny to see how the reactions in St. Louis to Albert Pujols participating in this event were just like the reactions on here to Shaq participating in this show.  Everyone is worried about their team's superstar athletes getting hurt doing just a short amount more of physical activity, regardless of the sport.
