Morning Links: This Guy Slept With Shaq And Really Wants You To Know About It

Here’s the explanation for why a guy would get “I SLEPT WITH SHAQ” tattooed across his face, in case you don’t know about “gonzo journalism”.

[The] tattoo across his forehead truly seals his gonzo credentials. Removing his Raiders cap, he displays it, sprawled in oddly formal cursive: “I Slept With Shaq.” He got the ink during a contest for Lakers NBA Finals tickets in 2001, a challenge presented by Power morning-show DJ Big Boy. Gonzalez showed the handiwork to Shaq — who was impressed — and Big Boy soon gave him a job at the station.

First bit of advice: don’t try to get a job from anyone named “DJ Big Boy”. (via The Basketball Jones)
