pretty funny.

shaq can run smack with the best of em, but ben is holding his own and getting some good digs in.

he told shaq he didnt want any girl scout cookies when shaq arrived at this house. :chuckle:

pretty cool to see him let his guard down and cut loose. props to the producers for showing some beautiful shots of pittsburgh and including charlie batch in on the show.

We all know that this episode was filmed just a few days after The Lawsuit was filed. Watching Ben doing the staged "press conference" where he introduced his posse of Batch, Keisel and Essex, probably just minutes after he read his statement to the press, wearing that very same brown suit (Ben, what is WITH the pinstripes? Seriously, get a girlfriend and let her pick out your clothes), was interesting and a little uncomfortable to see.

I liked the segment filmed at Ben's house. He seemed really relaxed, and he's a pretty funny guy. Nice house, too.

and ben wins his 3rd championship ring! :tt02:

granted its an nba ring and he only gets to wear it for a week but who cares.

lets see peyton or brady do that!

never really liked shaq on the court (despite his dominance) but he's a good guy off of it.

this show was his idea and he was the executive producer. props to him for showcasing pittsburgh and the steelers and proclaiming ben as the best in the game for the debut of his show.

this was also great PR for ben around the same day that his lawyers expose andrea mcnutjob for the flakey fraud she is.

on with ring #4.

I thought this show might suck as much as the production that was done for the 'Superstars', but beyond the commentators, I actually enjoyed it. It's awesome to see Ben's competitiveness, and the smack talk that he dished out to Shaq. Ben's persona seemed a lot more "raw" (probably due to the smack talk).

All in good fun though, I'm glad they chose Ben instead of, some patsy QB. Will probably tune in to more episodes, if not just for next week at least to see Misty May and and Kerri Walsh ;)

i thought the show was great...probably mostly because ben was in it...he's funnier than i thought...i loved when shaq sat in his chair and just as quickly as shaq sat down he picked his big ass right back outta that chair and was like " yeah not happenin, thats my chair" HAHA

It was pretty funny all around. I liked the part when Shaq went to Ben's place and hit the intercom to get in, Ben asked "Shaq who?"
The rest of the show followed that same kind of scenario as they both cracked jokes on each other.

Ben was into it, when he got down 14-7, you could see the competitiveness that we all have seen on Sundays come out.
You should have seen the look on Ben's face when Shaq said that if he won, he'd get to wear Ben's SB ring for a week....Ben said yes grudgingly, but only if he got to wear Shaq's NBA championship ring if he won. Never got to see if that bet was enforced as the show ended when Ben won the comptition.

I thought it was a great opener for the show but doubt that I'd watch it in the future. I only watched it to see him take on Ben.

It was definitely a fun show to watch. Especially when Shaq showed up at his house and the following conversation took place:

Ben: I don't want any girl scout cookies
Shaq: You calling me a girl scout
Ben: No but I heard you throw like one

I found the premise of the show to be pretty dumb. I also only watched it because Ben was featured. Although I like Shaq, I don't see myself watching it again.

LOL!! I'm constantly amazed at how a guy who makes many millions of dollars a year always looks like he needs a decent suit and a good haircut. I know Ben isn't Tom Brady and isn't ever going to look like a GQ model, but he could spend some money on really high quality suits and have them perfectly tailored (and he's TOO BIG for pinstripes - they look horrible on him). If he'd wear charcoal or navy, he'd look great.

And don't even get me started on his hair...he always looks like he either did it himself or went to SuperCuts or something.

Love you dearly, Ben, but someone needs to dress and groom you beyond the college jock look. :wink02:

Anytime you want to hatch a plan to kid nap the 6'5 franchise QB and take him shopping, I'm all ears!:chuckle::chuckle:
We don't need to turn him into Tom Brady, we can just polish him up and make him see the light beyond pinstripes!

The format of the show made the competition seem staged (his TD passes looks as if the defenders just let the guys get open/catch the ball), especially when Shaq jumped in there for an illegal pick-6.

Granted, it was great entertainment just to watch two grown men act and play around like kids and put on a good show for the fans (and even interact with them).

Ben is always so guarded around the media and with the public, you hardly ever see him just crack up or be silly. To me, that was the best part of the episode - getting to see the "goofy big kid," as he described himself in that recent GQ interview. He's a really likable guy with lots of personality and a great sense of humor, and it was fun to see that side of him, especially since most of the show was filmed on or around the day of the Press Conference in the Brown Pin-Stripe Suit.

Three things:

• When Shaq had on the black “home” #7 and said he had it on because he stole Ben’s Super Bowl jersey. Um, I know he was trying to be funny but it’s not like the home and away jerseys look alike. It just made him look stupid and scripted.

• Ben threw a pic-6 to Shaq? Also scripted but great for the crowd.

• Playing HORSE with Shaq. Shaq made one from on top of a rock, way off the court. Ben was down to his last shot, game on the line. And what does he do? Nothing but net! Ben goes on to beat Shaq at his own sport. Big Ben is totally a clutch player.
