May-September romances in the world of sports tend to involve beautiful young women and august veteran ballers with deep pockets and long resumes.

Of course, Shaquille O'Neal has always made a concerted effort to blaze his own trail. According to a video he posted on his Twitter account, he was hoping that his trail would lead right into 89-years-young Betty White's heart.

Alas, the behemoth once dubbed the Big Cactus found his marriage proposal met with a prickly response.

To the apparent surprise of the 39-year-old Shaq, the resurgent White believes that she can find herself a much younger suitor. It's also possible that the 5-foot-4 comedienne heard how incongruous most women seem when standing next to one of the largest players in NBA history.
