Shaq Vs: O’Neal Challenges Lance Armstrong

shaq-tmzWith Shaquille O’Neal’s reality show (Shaq Vs.) set to premier in about two weeks, the Big Diesel is looking for any challenge that he can find.  Next up on the block?  Lance Armstrong.

In his latest tweet, O’Neal apparently cleared the last week of August or the first week of September to take on Denny’s writstband supplier.  How he would “challenge” the bicyclist is beyond me, but after being shot down on his soccer challenge I think O’Neal would welcome any and all competition.

Recently, the big man challenged soccer star David Beckham to attempt scoring a goal while No. 33 tends goal.  Also via Twitter, Shaq called Beckham “lil man,” which apparently did not go over well.  Beckham attempted to fire back with a line about Kobe Bryant scoring on O’Neal.  Shaq came back with “There’s no way you’d score on me … how many goals did you score for the Galaxy?” 

The answer to that question: five.

Shaq will reportedly square off against Albert Pujols and Michael Phelps.  We’ll see if Armstrong accepts the challenge.  After all, is there anything better than a 300-pound man on a bicycle?

    How can you not love Shaq?! His twitter feed now features his pic in his #33 Cavs uniform, and lists Cleveland/other locations as his “home”.

    Man oh man it’s gonna be thunderous at the “Q” with LeBron and Shaq.

    This is not going to end well for us guys.

  • Denny

    Needs more writstbands! I’ve only got like 150 left.

    @#3… I agree… I hope Shaq is challenging to something else, not a bike race… because I see all this ending in a knee injury or something…

    I see it ending badly for the bicycle seat. Especially if its on of those little tiny ones they use on road bikes.

    I see what Denny did there – HE BROUGHT OUT THE SARCASM FONT.

    I can’t see Shaq fitting on a bike. Maybe it’s a rickshaw race.
