While there is no confirmation exactly where this peculiar photo was snapped or why Bubba Watson and Shaquille O’Neal are hanging out together — both of them are oddballs, so “peas in a pod” and so on and so forth (although that would be one misshapen pea pod given the disparate size of the two athletes) — it nevertheless is an amusing photo that the NBA legend tweeted of himself picking up the 2012 Masters champ like a rag doll. Via @SHAQ: Question:  Did Bubba call Shaq a fat ass or something to provoke the big man to scoop up the 6’3″ pro golfer, much like Charles Barkley did during a recent appearance on Conan O’Brien’s show? Or was it a case of some simple hijinks perpetrated by a couple of wild and crazy guys? Chillin wit my main man @bubbawatsonand no I Dnt stink like charles #bumswing Barkley twitter.com/SHAQ/status/32… — SHAQ (@SHAQ) April 16, 2013 I just hope Bubba didn’t cry about it. As we have all learned, it doesn’t take much to get the waterworks flowing for Bubba. How about this for a theory: Maybe Bubba turned Shaq down when he asked for a ride in Watson’s golf cart hovercraft. You never know. All those questions aside, what gives with Shaq’s outfit? Those garish duds look like something a colorblind clown would wear golfing. Sheesh.
