But League Two leaders Northampton Town, featuring good English blokes like Zander Diamond and Alfie Potter, who almost ceased to exist four months ago? There can’t be many Cobblers fans in America ... though apparently Shaquille O’Neal—who released this extremely surreal video today—is one.

Adebayo Akinfenwa, the biggest dude in the world, spent five seasons playing for Northampton Town, and now all I can do is picture him and Shaq playing up top together and terrorizing defenses.
