Simone Biles And Shaq Kick Off Super Bowl With An Epic Photo

Simone Biles had an early contender for the best photo of Super Bowl Sunday before the game even started. 

The Olympic gymnast shared a snapshot with Shaq to Instagram ahead of the main event at NRG Stadium in Houston. In the pic, the 4-foot-9-inch gold medal winner stands next to the 7-foot-1-inch basketball star. 

The two made quite the duo. 

hey Shaq 👋🏾

Biles, who is from Houston, spent the week with players from both the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. She also got to hang with Taylor Swift, who performed a pre-Super-Bowl show Saturday night for DIRECTV.
