Spotted during the telecast of tonight's St. Louis Cardinals game, the poor guy who gets the seat behind the seven-foot-one-inch tall Shaquille O'Neal
O'Neal is in St. Louis for the next few days, where he will film a
home run derby against Albert Pujols
, for a new reality TV show where
(is that name still relevant, what with all his entertaining
?) takes on pro athletes at their own game.
According to one blogger
, the NBA star will take on Pujols Thursday at T.R. Hughes
Stadium in O'Fallon, Missouri. The show will premiere at 8 p.m. on August 18 and be called Shaq VS.
The fellow behind O'Neal is Jerry Clinton
, known for leading Grey Eagle Distributors, Inc., which distributed Anheuser-Busch products.
Check back here tomorrow for coverage from O'Neal's press conference with Pujols.
