Shaq to conduct the Boston Pops

1 Comment

Boston loves Shaquille O’Neal. They flock to see the guy when he decides to be a statue for an hour.

Now he’s decided to be Arthur Fiedler.

Shaq will be conducting the Boston Pops, the Associated Press reports.

Next Monday the legendary orchestra will continue its annual holiday concert series at Symphony Hall and Shaq will come out and conduct Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride.” All 7’1” of him. We have to assume in a tux with tails. Conducting the orchestra once led by John Williams. Lakers fans just got queasy.

Actually, based on the last week, we hope Shaq’s calf is healed enough for him to go. He is officially a concert-time decision.

I kind of like this. He should be the best guest conductor Bugs Bunny conducted opera.
