Time for Jose Canseco to Beg for Attention

January 12, 2010

Less than 24 hours after Mark McGwire shocked the world (and by world, I mean seven people who were in comas between 1989 and 2008) by admitting his steroid use, reality show reject and tanning bed enthusiast Jose Canseco took time away from ratting out his friends to talk about his reputation, new challenges, and anal injections.

"I've got no problems with a few of the things he's saying, but again, it's ironic and strange that Mark McGwire denies that I injected him with steroids. He's calling me a liar again," Canseco said Tuesday on The Waddle & Silvy Show on ESPN 1000. "I've defended Mark, I've said a lot of good things about him, but I can't believe he just called me a liar.”

Conseco, who seems pretty upset that he isn’t given enough credit for sticking a needle in the former home run champ’s rear end, went on to issue a completely normal and non-ridiculous challenge to McGwire.

“I want to challenge him on national TV to a polygraph examination. I want to see him call me a liar under a polygraph examination."

Well, since the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight doesn’t look like it’s happening, maybe this could be the pay-per-view extravaganza that America wastes $49.99 on in 2010.
