Good morning, gang!   It’s Davey Mac here and we’ve got another action-packed and fun-filled Sports Report for ya on a Friday!   We’ve got the basketball!   The hockey!   And, of course, the football!   But first!

We have some controversy on the set of Inside The NBA on TNT.   Shaquille O’Neal predicted that TCU would win the National Championship and if Georgia won…Shaq would eat a frog.   Georgia won 65 to 7.

Here’s where things get complicated.   Shaq had breaded frogs legs made for him.   Now, Charles Barkley seems to think that this is cheating.   Shaq, meanwhile, says he never ate a frog…raw or cooked.   See the footage below!



So…what do you think?   Did Shaq cheat?   Are breaded frogs legs against the rules in this situation?   Should Shaq have eaten a live frog?   Or at least a dead one that wasn’t cooked?   It’s controversy, baby!   That’s what it is!
