Former Boston Celtic Shaquille O’Neal has a presence that’s pretty hard to miss, so when he went to a CVS in Leominster, Mass., on Monday, he had everyone in the area talking.

Chris Camire of the Sentinel & Enterprise reported that he saw Shaq browsing the toy aisle for a surprise birthday party.
He was later spotted at Chuck E. Cheese’s in Leominster with a woman identified as Latricia Rolle, a graduate of Worcester Academy who attended Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Fla., on a basketball scholarship. Shaq has been spotted with Rolle recently at Wimbledon and in Paris.
The best part of the story is that Camire later called the CVS to ask questions about Shaq’s visit. The employee wasn’t allowed to disclose any information per company policy, but she did say she asked Shaq how tall he was without knowing who the five-time NBA champion was.
Shaq told her he was 7-foot-4 — three inches taller than he really is.
He likely has been asked that question an infinite amount of times, so he probably pokes people’s ribs when he’s asked that question now.
