Jose Canseco holds sign: “Will play for photo-ops.” Sox try to keep a straight face.
Jose Canseco… um… Jose Canseco. Sorry. I’m struggling with how to type this and not sound sarcastic. Ahem. Okay.
Jose Canseco is making a comeback.
Inside Jose Canseco’s head.
“I’m trying my hardest and damndest,” Canseco said Tuesday in a phone interview with this newspaper. “I can’t get anybody to give me a chance. I saw the movie “Moneyball”, and I was amazed at what Billy [Beane] had to go through. I guess if you love something … that movie really got my juices flowing. I love baseball, people don’t know that about me. I miss it so much.”
It is like he KNOWS it’s a slow blog day.
“I’m 47, so my legs are not going to be what they were, but my bat speed and hands are still the same,” he said. “I can’t believe how fast (they are). I’m shocked how I haven’t lost a beat there.”
See. I could mount a wit attack here. But I think this story speaks for itself.
“Fenway 350 lifetime batting average 1 hr per every 9 at bats. I am ready to play for Boston give me a tryout.
Really? THAT is the funny thing?
You best believe I’m a new Twitter fan. With quotes like this:
“I guess murderers and child molesters get more chances than I do.”
See, I am not a fan of the juicing. We know this. We’ve all heard my juice rants.
But you know what I AM a fan of?
Buster Keatonesque, physical, slapstick comedy.
So I say, on behalf of myself and all comedy aficionados,
PLEASE LET HIM TRY OUT.
And televise it.
I mean, that’s comic gold. I can’t believe no one has thought of this before…
Please, Bobby C? PLEASE??????? Can I order an advance dvd? Thanks.
Seriously. How can you turn down the chance to share THIS with America?
