A few years ago I was playing poker at Caesar’s Palace and Jose Canseco walked in. They originally told him to come to our table, then at the last second told him to go to another. I was disappointed because I really wanted to ask him about his stellar UFC career (he had one fight and got his ass kicked). Seems he’s having a little problem at the poker tables:
The saga of Jose Canseco’s finger — yes, the finger he recently shot off and had surgically reattached — has apparently taken another equally tragic and squeamish turn.
While participating in a poker tournament on Thursday night, Canseco claims the finger just fell off, and he has the witnesses to back him up. He even says one person was taking video when it happened.
He put it all on Twitter, so apparently it wasn’t a thumb that was affected:
Ok well I might as well tell you .I was playing in a poker tournament last night and my finger fell off .someone took a video of it.
My finger should have been amputated from the beginning. It was very loose with no bone to connect it.it was also smelling really bad.
Iron law of poker: If your opponent’s finger falls off, he’s bluffing.
