Shaquille O'Neal Crashes Boston Wedding, Fails to Deliver Best Man Toast

Shaq_1 If Shaquille O'Neal wants to crash your wedding, he's going to crash your wedding.

And chances are, he's not going to be too coy about doing it.

After all, he'll be that 7-foot bald guy in jeans and a T-shirt.

On Friday, Aug. 27, that's just what happened as Shaq wandered into the wedding ceremony of Kristen and Wes Schifone at the Four Seasons in downtown Boston, much to the delight of the newlyweds. Shaq didn't show off his epic moves on the dance floor, nor did he spit out some serious rhymes with the band, but it was a memorable visit to say the least.

"Considering it was someone of his stature, he was a total gentleman and just acted like one of the guys," the groom said from his Hawaiian honeymoon. "He accepted everyone's photo request and even remembered our names the next day and asked that we come down for a photo shoot with him for the [Boston] Globe."

Perhaps the future Hall of Famer was doing some homework for wedding tips for his own nuptials?

The Big Crasher even showed up at brunch the following morning, after a night of posing for some photos with the couple and bridesmaids, as seen below.

Personally, I'm getting tired of Shaq being in the news every other day. His ego is out of control.

I was thinking that this was some "Shaq Vs. The Best Man at a Wedding" skit or something.

I'd admit that if he showed up at my Wedding, as long as he wasn't drunk, being an @ss or demanding things and he was totally being normal...I'd be okay with that.

I love Shaq off the basketball court. He's personable and likable in real life. On the court, he's never been a favorite of mine but I love his Shaq Vs show and the way he interacts with the fans is really cool.
