It’s on! In Episode 2 of “Shaq vs.”, Shaquille O’Neal takes on 2-Time Olympic Gold Medalists Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh in a game of Beach Volleyball. The rules were 3 games to 11 points with rally scoring using a Women’s regulation Volleyball net. The height of the net in a women’s regulation game is 7’3″. Shaq is 7’1″ so when he challenged Misty and Kerri, he said that he didn’t need any handicaps (seeing as that he had the height advantage) unlike the premiere episode with Ben Roethlisberger where Shaq asked for a distance handicap. The stakes are if Shaq loses, he has to wear a pink speedo that says “Shaq” on the rear and parade them around so to speak (basically he has to take a walk on the beach with them on). Before this match, it was mentioned that Kerri & Misty had won 108 consecutive matches. So who will win this “battle of the sexes” match?

Last night, August 18, 2009, was the premiere of “Shaq vs.” on ABC. This show is exactly like that Gatorade commercial with Michael Jordan and Mia Hamm. In a game of “anything you can do, I can do better”, NBA player Shaquille O’Neal challenges other professional athletes at their own sport. The series premiere pitted Shaq against Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in order to determine the better quarterback. The series premiere of “Shaq vs.” was quite hilarious! There is no question that Shaq is a big guy standing at 7’1″ so I think this will be quite an interesting show to watch. With egos and reputations on the line, it is amazing how the competitive nature of these athletes are unleashed.
