|Be careful what you wish for, Jose Canseco. Herschel Walker is no Danny Partridge.|
For people who enjoy societal train wrecks, Twitter has proven to be a wonderful tool. Instead of idiot celebrities being audited by their PR people, they're free to circulate staggering stupidity in real time.
This from Jose Canseco, to his 324,000 followers: I guess I may have to show Herschel Walker who the real Bad Boy of the sports industry is. If the powers that be are reading, I want in. (Jose threw a few random capitalizations in there -- omitted for clarity.)
Who could possibly advocate civilization's decline in such a fashion? Blame Cesar Gracie's camp, which posted a video inviting Canseco to come train. Although I have yet to meet a freak fight I'd turn off, a Canseco-Walker promotion would run the risk of turning Walker into a punchline -- something he largely avoided in the build-up to his recent fight by coming off as sincere and serious. Granted, Greg Nagy was a bit of a heavy bag. But once you agree to fight the guy who couldn't finish off Danny Bonaduce, you're in another area code of absurdity. Does Shaquille O'Neal get the winner?
