Miami Heat forward Shane Battier was clearly not meant to be a singer. Still, Battier didn't let that small fact get in the way of him completely murdering the theme to 1970s and 80s classic camp TV show The Love Boat. The logical question of course is why in the world is Battier torturing our ears like this?
It's actually for a good reason, but I'm not sure that makes it okay. It's Battier's way of promoting his second annual 'South Beach Battioke' celebrity karaoke fundraiser. The money raised benefits the Shane Battier Take Charge foundation. I can't be the only one not surprised that a Duke guy would name his foundation Take Charge, right? Good for you, Battier, but please stop singing.
