Shaq Shows Up At The Belmont Stakes Dressed Like A Jockey

Saturday, June 07, 2008


Shaq always makes me laugh for some reason. The guy just doesn't care and his appearance on ESPN today at the Belmont Stakes was no different. I believe he was doing a promotion for vitamin water, but Shaq decided to give some of the jockeys some tips....



That Diplomatic Immunity line is too funny, and I also love how Hank Goldberg just doesn't care that Kenny Mayne is trying to get a joke in and steps all over him to get that coach question in. Good times.

I think you mean Hank Goldberg - pretty sure Greenberg hasn't been with us for a while.

Shaq's appearance was much cooler than the Rick Reiley piece, which was supposed to be light and funny. Instead, it came off cheesy self-serving.

Well, that sure was BIG Brown, wasn't it? Are u sure Geraldo wasn't on the telecast?

Seriously...great choice to ignore the winner and focus 100% on BB for 10 minutes after. Kudos to Brent for bringing up the breeding component. Kudos to all who immediately brought up the lack of steroids component.

As good as it gets for reax, imo.

Shaq is just highly intelligent and sophisticated and able to think fast.
