Shaq might be the most likable guy in Boston, but I won't deny that I was miffed by his announcement that he's co-conducting a Boston Pops holiday concert next Monday. I think it's funny and Shaq-worthy and all, but I was kind of hoping that he'd do a hip-hop show of some sort before picking up the baton.
As it turns out, I'm not the only one asking him to grab a mic, as there's already a campaign to get him on stage with Wu-Tang next week at the Wilbur Theatre (there's another show on January 3, by the way). Please join the petition, and help make a small dream come true for a whole lot of rap geeks. And don't forget: His name ain't Shaq no more - call him Superman emblem.
