Shaq tries, fails to get into WH

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
Despite the myriad of sports starts seen traipsing through the White House, today it apparently turned away a big one -- Shaq

. According to Shaq's Tweets, per Politico:

Tweet #1: "Question, I'm n dc, think if I walk up to the white house, they let me in, I kno the answer, let me kno wht u think, o yea I'm wearin shrts."

Tweet #2: "The white house wouldn't let me in, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy."

Today, President Obama meets with the WNBA champions as well as the head of soccer's world governing body (FIFA) about soccer in the U.S. Also, remember that Dwyane Wade, a former teammate of Shaq's when he was on the Miami Heat, was at the White House for a Father's Day event.
