Shaquille O’Neal surprises Florida teens, officer with game of basketball
Video and related videos are a MUST SEE!
A former NBA superstar surprised a Florida police officer and a group of teenagers days after the officer was captured on video responding to a call of children playing basketball too loudly in the street and instead of breaking up the game, the officer joined them.
NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, touched by Gainesville Police Department Officer Bobby White’s gesture, showed up to the neighborhood where White was called to and played a game of basketball with the children and the officer.
According to Action News 30, O’Neal wanted to keep the event as low-key as possible. He called the Gainesville public information officer Ben Tobias requesting the event to be kept under wraps for the sake of the children.
“I became a cop to help people, and these kids will never forget the day Shaq rolled up to their neighborhood and played basketball with them,” Tobias said.
“Without my choice to keep it a secret, I’m not sure this day would have transpired like it did,” he added.
White had been dispatched to deal with a complaint about the teens playing too loudly at about 5 p.m. on Jan. 15, police said. The officer is seen on dashboard video playing with the teens and even throwing down a slam dunk.

Partially blind Texas man adopts puppy with 1 eye
Thanks to what doctors call “a miracle surgery,” an Australian toddler is on the mend after enduring a near-death car accident that caused his head to detach from his body.
The Sun reported that 16-month-old Jackson Taylor was riding in the car with his mother and 9-year-old sister when they collided with another vehicle driven by an 18-year-old man at about 70 mph. The crash caused an internal decapitation, in which Jackson’s head became removed from his neck.
Jackson was airlifted from the site of the crash to a hospital in Brisbane, Queensland, on the eastern coast of Australia, where surgeons began a six-hour procedure to save the toddler’s life.
Dr. Geoff Askin, known as Australia’s “godfather of spinal surgery,” led the operation, which involved attaching a halo device to Jackson’s skull, holding him completely still while reattaching his vertebrae using a tiny piece of wire, and then taking a piece of Jackson’s rib to graft the two vertebrae together.
“A lot of children wouldn’t survive that injury in the first place,” Askin told 7 News Melbourne, “and if they did and they were resuscitated, they may never move or breathe again.”
Askin told the news station that Jackson’s condition was the worst injury of its kind that he’d seen.
Damn Good Onya’ Mates!
Hope the lad grows and lives a normal healthy life..
..And all of the synonyms for the word. Woke this morning to find one of my “man’s best friends” had passed overnight, Devon. Notcho was my pet name for him. Notcho was a tri-color Smooth Collie male that was born with a slight tear on his left ear, thus, the pet name of Notcho.
Friendly to all that were deemed “friends”, cross that line and Notcho made sure that he or they who did cross that line know that he/they DID, in fact, cross that line.
Keep looking at this beautiful little one and my first thought was upon seeing that still shot WAS You? Surely You Jest..
They Had No Idea How Bad Her Eyesight Was Until She Started Wearing Glasses
We often take how newborns see the world for granted, but what would happen if you found out that an infant couldn’t see anything? This would be hard to discover, since they can’t properly communicate that they need glasses and they’ve never seen you. How does one get past this major obstacle?
For one mother, the answer was to rush out and buy her child glasses ASAP. What happened next is incredible. This kid is just too cute when she starts to see everything.
It Takes A Super Dad To Make Wearing An Eye Patch This Much Fun
Redditor Gfgrubb‘s daughter Layla was born with a small cataract in her right eye. To ensure that the eye develops correctly, she must wear an eye patch over her left eye for two hours a day. Initially, Layla hated wearing the patch. Luckily for her, she has a super dad who came up with a way to make wearing it a lot easier. With her dad’s doodles to make things more fun, wearing the patch for Layla is more like wearing a neat sticker than a boring ol’ corrective adhesive.
