Obama Gets a Shaq-Sized Shoe

Some people receive flowers, others get giant shoes: “What’s the ideal gift for a basketball-obsessed president? Try a size 23 sneaker personally autographed by Shaquille O’Neal. The Phoenix Suns center couldn’t be around himself when President Barack Obama arrived at Sky Harbor International Airport Tuesday afternoon. So when the president stepped off of Air Force One, Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon’s son Jake made the presentation at the foot of the stairs.”

    Yeah…dont they…. one is the president of the “free-world”, one is going to go down in history as possibly the most influencing person of the new millenium and one is a pretty genuine person that shares his love of basketball on the daily…. how are they not the same person is what I want to know.
