SHAQFIGHTERMore fu for you! 'SHAQFIGHTER' has been trademarked photo



This must be punishment for every unpleasant word ever uttered in response to Shaquille O'Neal's off-court ventures -- his rap career, his starring roles in Kazaam and Steel, the mind-numbing Shaq Fu. I can only imagine that Shaq's continued virtual presence after his retirement from basketball, starting with the recently released mobile game ShaqDown, is part of an extended plan to weaken our constitutions so much that we ultimately accept Shaq into our hearts and souls as the true Renaissance man that he is.

Mine O’Mine, the company that operates the 24-hour Shaq media hub Shaq.com, filed a trademark for "SHAQFIGHTER" on May 8, 2013. The trademark applies towards videogames, online games, related TV and animated tie-ins, and any other possible exploitations. Of course, this is merely to cover all the bases, as there's no guarantee that this so-called "SHAQFIGHTER" will be anything more than a simple iOS game or something. But what if it's more? More, I say!

I've tried to calm myself down by reading through the "Shaq Facts" on Shaq.com. Did you know that Shaquille means "Little Warrior" in Arabic? Or that Shaq's favorite meal is baked macaroni and fried chicken? Did you remember that there was a show a few years back called Shaq Vs., in which Shaq would compete against -- and usually lose to -- other athletes in their own sports?

Uh oh. I think the Shaqtus has taken root in my abdomen. Run, my friends! Save yourselves!

MLB 15 The Show is all about realism

If you've been on the fence about MLB 15 The Show and whether or not it truly represents the splendor and majesty of America's game, then let this video be the deciding factor in your curiosity. Just as in real life, ball boys can be tricky little bastards. If you don't keep your eye on them, then this type of shit happens.more

Now batting, Herb Guy

I'm still playing MLB 15 The Show for our review. Instead of going to my PS3, uploading my Road to the Show shortstop to the Cloud, then importing it into my PS4, I stayed put (they're in different places) and made a new pit...more

Minnesota Timberwolves go old school with Rubio Kart 64

Since Nintendo loves content creators so much, let's keep this Mario Kart 64-inspired video by the Minnesota Timberwolves on the down low. Ricky Rubio must love it, though, because it's going to be the only chance he has to actually win something meaningful. [Via Facebook]more
