Did you watch “Shaq Vs.” last night? I did! As I’m sure you all know by now, this was the season premiere for the show that pits Shaquille O’Neal against the best sports stars outside of Shaq’s basketball comfort zone. He’s gone up against swimmer Michael Phelps, pro beach volleyball stars Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings and now NASCAR’s own Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Dale Jr. won, of course (duh). I think it was more fun to watch Shaq interact with Dale Jr, Tony Eury Sr. and Jr. I loved how they all had to look straight up just to talk to 7-foot-tall Shaq, who made them all look like they were 2 feet tall. I wondered if they all had crooks in their necks from having to look up so much. So funny.
Overall though this was a great opportunity for the world to see that NASCAR is more than just turning left. Shaq is undoubtedly one of the best athletes we have and he gave huge props to NASCAR drivers.
So here’s a piece useless information that I can’t help but share. One of the co-hosts of the “Shaq Vs.” show is Kit Hoover. Kit was on the very first season of MTV’s reality show “Road Rules” way back in 1995. That’s when “Road Rules” was actually interesting and wasn’t just a bunch of drunk people hooking up every five seconds. Yes, people hooked up back then but that wasn’t their main motivation for being on the show (at least it wasn’t obvious). Anyway, it’s nice to know that Kit is still working. She was also on ESPN’s “Cold Pizza” for a while, too.
