So the crowd at the Granite Links Golf Club that had been waiting all afternoon for Shaquille O'Neal to show up sees a helicopter swoop in over the course and land near the driving range and immediately assume it's the 7-foot megastar.

They run across the parking lot with microphones, cameras and cellphones trying to get a shot.

Only it's not him. It's "just" some couple.

Some couple rich enough to avoid rush-hour traffic by hopping in the helicopter to have dinner at the Tavern.

O'Neal shows up shortly thereafter. How big was his entrance?

He pulls up driving a simple red van.

His first words?

"Got you with the old helicopter trick, huh?"
