    In an ironic juxtaposition to the "People you wish would just go away" thread, Shaquille O'Neal announced his retirement form the NBA today.

    Even though I don't follow or even really like NBA basketball, Shaq was the kind of consummate pro that should be the norm rather than the exception.

    Worked hard....Played the game well....No drama....Made time for the fans (the sitting in the square like a statue bit was priceless)....An enduring genuine smile of a truly happy guy.

    I wish that he and guys like him would never go away.
