Shaquille O'Neal was born in Newark, New Jersey, so it was only a matter of time until he showed up at a Devils game. The NBA's crown prince of goofiness was in top form on Saturday.
The sight of him dropping the puck before the game in an Alexei Ponikarovsky jersey raises so many questions.
1. First of all, could they not find a bigger jersey for the poor guy? He's not exactly in playing shape. He might suffocate.
2. Of all the great players that played for the Devils, they could only find a Ponikarovsky jersey? No Scott Stevens? No Scott Niedermayer? No MARTIN BRODEUR?
3. How quickly do you think he took that jersey off once the game started?
Of course, he also rode the Zamboni before the game (and will again during intermission). So you know who to blame when the ice gets choppy.
