Of course the web is buzzing about Shaq's new Memoir "Shaq Uncut: My Story" I love the Huffington Post and their commenters go hard in the paint. The obvious hilarity of him believing there is a "respectable way" to cheat is what every body is talking about. LOL However, as I was scanning the comments, I came across a guy who referenced a past interview from Shaq's that had me rolling! I mean I could.not.stop. laughing!
Evidently Shaq had just returned from an overseas trip to Greece.....
REPORTER: Did you get a chance to visit the Parthenon ?
SHAQ: I can't really remember the names of all the clubs that we went to.
The HuffPo commenter was basically saying that Shaq's logic about cheating should come as no surprise since the thought the Parthenon was a club ! LOL
After laughing my A%$ off, I needed to find out of it was true, so I actually googled it & found several links to this quote from the interview. Now first let me clarify. I am a nerd. I was very bookish as a child and into adulthood. I was actually the Valedictorian of my class. So it may be presumptuous of me to think that everyone should know what the Parthenon is. But I promise you when I think of Greece it is the FIRST thing that comes to mind.
I actually like Shaq & don't really think negatively of him but, this really tickled me today.
Happy Friday ! Enjoy your weekend.
