here's yet another example of shaquille o'neal being an exemplary human being. according to the story, shaq found out that his third grade teacher was having a rough time and arranged for her and her family to spend the weekend with him, and got them great seats at a miami heat game. eighth row. i've never even sniffed the eighth row. you can say that he's getting fat and old, but you can't say that he's not a nice guy. i simply can't understand why people hate him when he does stuff like this. i've said it once and i'll say it again, shaq's personality does not warrant the vitriol that is usually directed his way.
