September 15, 2009 – Loyola University, Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Shaq vs. Michael Phelps. Shaqmu, the Killer Whale vs. the Baltimore Bullet. 4-time NBA Champion Shaquille O’Neal challenges 14-time Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps! It’s the War in the Water, ABC’s Shaq Vs. season finale.
See the 325-pound Diesel train – dryland style and in-the-pool with Coach Bob Bowman. Then, Shaqalonius the Great takes on Michael in three races, including anchoring a 200 individual medley relay featuring Olympians Dana Vollmer, Rebecca Soni, and Ariana Kukors. Boom, bang, boom.
Great fun, and great for swimming. Give the show a BIG clap for swimming, a standing O. Although, I’m left wondering why the newly, self-admitted black Milorad Cavic (“I celebrated too early. I had it, and I couldn’t finish.”) dons a swim cap. Give Shaq the GOLF clap for that line. :o). So, who else wants an “I Beat Michael Phelps” tattoo?
