When Shaq challenges you to a race on the Charles, there’s only one way to respond: “Game on.”
The basketball star expressed his intentions to race against Harvard’s top rowers in a four with Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce.
My first thought was “Really, Shaq? Are you sure you don’t want a coxswain?” The Charles is pretty tricky. Perhaps Shaq should recruit a coxswain who knows the river. But knowing O’Neal, he’ll probably just throw Rajon Rondo or Nate Robinson in the bow and hope for the best. (Good luck on the Weeks turn.)
A race between the Celtics and the Crimson has the potential to be one of the most fantastically entertaining events this river has ever seen.
Who could resist a showdown between the city’s two most successful teams?
If there's a bad coxswain joke, I haven't heard it.
Basically… if someone's doing something competitive out there… Shaq will challenge you. I'm still waiting for Shaq to challenge me in a blogging contest.
Whaddya say, Shaq… wit vs. wit…. keyboard vs. keyboard… some…. other thing…. vs. ummm…
I dunno where I was going with that.
