The man, the legend, Jose Canseco

You know how Jose Canseco gets on Twitter and is all like “I’m the best at everything. I challenge you to challenge me”? Or, in the man’s own words:

Well, a guy in Ottawa took Canseco up on his offer to challenge him and this past weekend, Canseco was in Ottawa to take part in a home-run derby with Evan Malamud, appliance salesman.

Canseco lost the derby.

In fairness, Canseco had to hit baseballs out of the park and Malamud had to hit softballs over a much shorter softball fence. But still, Canseco lost.

I was unable to find video of the derby itself, but I did find this gem: Canseco’s media scrum.

How low can you go?

If you’re Jose Canseco, apparently pretty low. Admitting that he was scared and that he was only doing it for the money, Canseco stepped into a Japanese MMA ring this morning (it was the night in Japan, I guess) and got his ass handed to him by a 7-foot-2, 330 pound South Korean who wore an Ewok t-shirt to the ring.
