The Big Aristotle headed out to Harvard Square today and...stood still. For some reason. He announced his plans on Twitter, of course, and crowds soon engulfed the struggling actor and sometime law enforcement official.

Shaq has ingratiated himself well with the Boston community, even being bestowed with the nickname Shamroq since, well, since it's Boston. Good on him. I hope everyone got the kooky new Facebook picture they were after.
