Lovin' that Shaq

kw: popular culture

I had the chance this Summer to watch all the episodes of Shaq Versus. Great fun! Just more silliness therapy for me. Tonight was more about heartwarming than about serious competition. The "victims" were Jimmy Kimmel and Justin Bieber. With Kimmel, the Diesel traded 5-minute trash-talk monologues. Both were hilarious. Then with Bieber, it was a collaboration rather than a competition. I am not much of a fan of pop, but it is clear why Justin Bieber is so popular. He is a great performer, and Shaq showed he could keep up as well as any man who is pushing fifty. So what if everything is over-hyped? It was plenty of fun, all season, but particularly tonight.
