So Shaquille O'Neal has this new show where he challenges athletes from sports other than basketball to some friendly competition.  It's kind of like "Pros versus Joes," except it's Pro versus Pro, and one of the Pros is a professional Joe.  Follow that?  Good.

Shaq recently began calling out David Beckham to appear on his show.  He wants to meet on a soccer pitch for a little one on one.  Shaq will play in the goal, while Beckham blasts the ball at him.  He's been posting on Twitter telling Beckham that he could never score on Diesel.  Here's some of Shaq's twitter shenanigans:

"Dear david beckham, I kno u heard about my shaq vs show, anyway u will never score a goal on me, I challenge you lil man"

"David beckham I kno u hear me, dnt be scared, dnt make me call u out, u will never score a goal on me"

"Dear david beckham, dnt make me tweet to 2 million people that yur scared of shaq, u betta respnd, if u scared get a dog"

Beckham, who is a well known Laker fan, and a friend of Kobe Bryant, has yet to reply to the challenge.
